About Carlos

Carlos Santos

Born in Elizabeth and raised in Mountainside, New Jersey, Carlos has lived for over four decades in Union County. Previously employed as an ironworker, his years in the union have provided Carlos with a mindset that enables him to successfully negotiate and strategize through high-demand issues, as well as foster teamwork and camaraderie in any work or community type setting.

Whether participating in festivals at the Portuguese club in Elizabeth, the Italian festivals in Peterstown, or political venues such as the NJ Liaison for Latino Strike Force, the District 1 Committeeman for Mountainside, the Union County Director of Committee Development, the founder member of ROC New Jersey and a strong grassroot advocate it is clear to see the inspiring and proven level of commitment and dedication Carlos Santos displays. This Union County resident has recently been awarded “Volunteer of the Year” by the Union County Republican Club.
