Candidates Sought for DiMaso's Township Committee Seat

Interested in serving on the Township Committee? Marcy Prince McMullen invites registered Republican Party candidates to step forward. Note the deadline!


Holmdel Deputy Mayor Serena DiMaso, recently elected as Monmouth County Freeholder, has resigned her position on the Township Committee. 

In a special election held on Saturday, Serena won the position recently vacated by Robert Clifton. Mrs. DiMaso was immediately sworn in to start her new job as Freeholder.

Since Serena DiMaso is a registered Republican, the Holmdel Republican County Committee is responsible for soliciting candidates interested in filling the vacant seat on the Township Committee. 

Three nominees will be presented to the four Township Committee members who will select DiMaso’s replacement.

Interested registered Republicans should contact Marcy Prince McMullen, Holmdel Republican Municipal Committee Chair,  marcyprince@comcast.net. or 732-580-1060.

The deadline is Wednesday, January 25, 2012.

i always thought this part of government was kind of wrong people should be the only ones to elect there leaders . Same way i thing the people should elect there mayors to when leaders elect there high leaders it seems less of a democratic way and more like Communism in the government controlling government way that is .

This is the form of government has under the Faulkner Act. The person select for the unexpired seat will have to stand for election in November

It's pretty amazing how many different forms of local government state law mandates in New Jersey. Actually, Tom, I believe Township governance (which is the oldest of all local government options) falls under the Township Act of 1899, which was amended in 1989. The New Jersey State League of Municipalities offers an article on its web site on the forms of government available in New Jersey. If anyone is interested, you can read it here....http://www.njslom.org/magart0307_p14.html

The main point was a response to Mr Cohn.

Tom, "all registered Republicans?" You burst my bubble.
