Democratic Freeholder Race

Monmouth Democratic Party Chairman Vic Scudiery said today that the deadline for candidates to declare their intention to run for Monmouth County Freeholder has been waived and that nominations will be accepted from the floor when the County Democrats meet for their convention on Saturday March 8.

As reported in yesterday's Asbury Park Press Amy Mallet, who ran for Assembly in the 12 district last year and Michael Beson, a member of the Ocean Township Board of Education have declared their candidacies.

Lenny Inzerillo of Middletown, who challenged Joe Kyrillos for the 13th District State Senate seat last year is a candidate. Inzerillo won the party Freeholder nomination in 2006 but withdrew due to an ELEC controversy that has since been resolved.

Former Hazlet Police Officer and school board member Glen Mason, who sought the Dem's Sheriff nomination last year, is also a candidate.

Pat Walsh, also from Middletown, has shown some interest. She ran for Assembly last November as well.

Art Gallagher said...

I spoke with Pat. She's not running for Freeholder.

Barry Goldwater said...

The APP reports this afternoon that Beson is not running.

Teddy Roosevelt said...

Wow, with that field we may actually maintain control of the board.

Pat walsh would have been a better candidate then any of the ones seeking it.

What happened to Honecker? His name was thrown around and not even an announcment that he did not want it?
