Larry ‘The Lunger’ Luttrell , a Democrat lawyer from Holmdel, is running for Monmouth County Freeholder for the third time, according to report at InsiderNJ.
Luttrell earned the moniker The Lunger as a freeholder candidate in 2014. During a debate at the Four Seasons Club House in Manalapan, Luttrell jumped from his seat and lunged towards Freeholder Lillian Burry when she asked him, “Is your name Pinocchio?” in response to a comment he made distorting her record.
This year maybe we’ll call Luttrell The Masochist because he apparently likes to be beaten. In addition to losing his freeholder race to Burry in 2014, he lost to Serena DiMaso in 2013. He lost a bid to be elected to the Holmdel Township Committee in 2012 and again last year.
All those beatings earned Luttrell’s wife, Renee, a five year term on the Monmouth County Tax Board.
Luttrell does not yet know if he will be running against Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger (Scharfenberger will be sworn in on Saturday to the freeholder seat vacated by DiMaso taking office in the state Assembly) or Hazlet Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley. Kiley will be nominated on Saturday by the GOP for the seat currently held by disgraced Freeholder John Curley.
According to the InsiderNJ report Luttrell is taking credit for the all Republican Freeholder Board selling the County owned nursing homes in 2015.
