Interview with Don Sico

Don Sico served as Executive Director of the New Jersey Assembly Republicans from 1990-2002, making him the longest serving Executive Director of the Assembly in its history. Sico began his political career in the Ohio state legislature after a successful stint as a journalist. He then moved to Washington, D.C., to serve as Press Secretary for U.S. Representative Bob McEwen (R-OH). He left Washington in 1988 to move to New Jersey, first becoming a speechwriter for N.J. Assembly Speaker Chuck Hardwick (R) and later Hardwick’s Communications Director in the Speaker’s 1989 Republican primary campaign for New Jersey governor. After Hardwick lost the primary, Sico worked as Communications Director for the Republican nominee, James Courter. Following Mr. Courter’s defeat, Sico returned to the Assembly Republican Office, where he was named Communications Director. In 1990, Sico was appointed Executive Director of the Assembly Republicans, a position he held for 12 years. Currently, he is President and C.E.O. of Donald Sico & Co. LLC, a New Jersey-based government relations firm. (Nov. 2016)
