On June 4, 2013, John Campbell, Jr. won the primary nomination to the general election for New Jersey State Assembly in the 22nd District, representing Middlesex, Somerset and Union Counties.
John Campbell is the oldest of two children born to John "Mike" and Wilma Campbell and a 7th generation descendant of Benjamin and Edith Spaulding. He attended the Wardlaw Hartridge School in Edison, NJ and graduated from Babson College in Wellesley, MA, where he served as Student Government President for three consecutive years. While in Boston, John worked with United States Senator Scott P. Brown in Constituent Services.
John has since returned to New Jersey, where he is an entrepreneur and helps run his family's Real Estate Firm in Plainfield, NJ. His "foray" into politics is indicative of his personal and professional experience: to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions.
