Mike Devine to Lead Frank Pallotta’s Veteran Policy Team
Pallotta only candidate speaking to the issues our veterans face
RAMSEY, N.J. – MAY 28, 2022 – Concluding a vital week in this year’s primary campaigns, Republican Congressional Candidate Frank Pallotta announced that Michael Devine has been appointed Senior Veterans Advisor to the Pallotta For Congress Campaign. In this role, Mr. Devine will oversee the Pallotta for Congress Veterans Policy Team and transform the platform into legislative action items once Frank Pallotta is elected to the House of Representatives in November.
“Frank has been a friend and supporter of the Veteran Community for as long as I’ve known him,” said Mr. Devine. “From founding a company that helped Veterans avoid foreclosure during the financial crisis, to his work with American Corporate Partners (ACP) helping Veterans transition from active military duty to the private sector, Frank Pallotta gets it. In fact, Frank is the only candidate speaking to the mental health crisis and high suicide rate among our servicemen and women who face significant struggles.”
Mr. Devine served in the United States Marine Corps, was a part of Operation Desert Storm, and is a member of the Mahwah VFW Post 7124.
He is currently District Commander of District 2 (Bergen County) in the Department of New Jersey. Additionally, Mr. Devine is a committee member of the Veterans and Military Support Committee for the National VFW.
This announcement closes out Memorial Day weekend and Frank Pallotta’s endorsement by Retired Lieutenant Navy Commander Steven Rogers as well.
“I have been a lifelong advocate for veterans,” Mr. Pallotta said. “My father is a proud Korean War Veteran and Veterans Affairs is one of my first-choice committees to serve on. This nation has not walked the walk when it comes to those who have risked their lives and sacrificed so much to protect our freedoms. We do not provide them with adequate healthcare, mental health services, job placement programs, or opportunities to advance their studies at little or no cost. It’s completely unacceptable for the status quo with our Veteran to continue.”
Mr. Devine continued, “We are looking to November. We strongly believe that Frank Pallotta will be the nominee and win the votes of veterans. It is simply wrong to feign veteran support just to avoid answering the tough questions about the critical issues facing our country. Being a Veteran is an honor and a privilege I carry with me every day, and I know Frank Pallotta will honor their legacy and do what’s right for our great Veteran Community”.
