LETTERS OF ENDORSEMENT
We have known each other for nearly 30 years, sharing similar careers in law enforcement, a love and passion for our communities and the people we serve. Over the years I have enjoyed partnering with you on numerous projects. I have been impressed with your dedication and work ethic. While you have many successes, your ability to lead and get things done is most evident in the success and growth of the Police Activities League of Egg Harbor Township and now the Police Activities League of Atlantic County. Your success, the success of your team, and the success of your organization is truly amazing.
On January 6, 2021, you made your decision to run for the United States Congress. Like you, I believe in the famous saying, “The only thing necessary for evil to succeed is for good people to sit and do nothing.” We have never been ones to sit and do nothing. The horrible events of January 6th inspired you to commit to doing even more for our country and communities. I stand with you!
I am inspired by your story and your commitment to our community. I think you will make an excellent congressman. I fully endorse your campaign for the United States Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District in 2022. I know you are ready for the next step, to lead for your country. You have my encouragement, you have my support, you have my friendship and you have my vote!

I have known Hector Tavarez for 25 years and I can assure you that a vision of making South Jersey the best it can be is at the forefront of his campaign for Congress. Hector is a dynamic, energetic, and transformational leader. Since I have known him, his passion has always been to be in touch with and responsive to the needs of the community and concerns of the citizens – especially, the youth. One of his greatest assets is the ability to bring people together to get things done. By doing just that, he was able to establish the most successful Police Activities League in New Jersey and perhaps the country. He is currently working with local municipal leaders to bring this noteworthy program to other municipalities.
Hector is a passionate, honest, hardworking, and committed public servant and I fully support him in his run for Congress. He is exactly the type of leader we need in South Jersey to represent us in Washington. I am confident, he will use his knowledge, skills, experience, and talents to bring to the forefront services and projects that are critical to building and sustaining a strong South Jersey for us and our children.

I met Hector Tavarez over a year ago at a protest rally, outside the current Congressman’s office in Mays Landing. Hector made it known, to us at this rally, that his intention was to run for the Congressman’s seat. Hector has since been traveling throughout the 2nd Legislative District expounding his talents, while meeting the constituents learning what is important to them. His intention is to know and understand the entire district’s needs.
Hector has visited us in Salem County many times and is interested in our needs, the support we should receive, which we lack from our current congressman. Hector impressed me with his work experience as a police captain. He recognizes the things that are important to our district and a necessity to correct for the benefit of the constituents.
Hector for the last 30 years has devoted his time and energy to the Police Athletic League (PAL) to provide the youth of his community a facility to safely expend their energy. We recently were invited and toured a new handicap accessible community center being constructed on their site. Hector was proud to share that new center was designed with and from input provided by the many young men who will use this facility.
Hector and I discussed a specific interest our family has, the ‘Special Needs’ community. Having a special needs granddaughter has made my wife and I aware of the issues faced by the disabled population. Hector shares a genuine interest in this aspect of the community and intends to devote support to their needs.
Again, I was very impressed with his knowledge and work ethic that he a has demonstrated throughout his career. Based on his determination to do the right thing, I believe Hector is the right man that we should elect as our Congressman.

Deputy Mayor of Carneys Point
