Galante emphasizes Republican values to support Neff in Little Silver primary

By Don Galante, Little Silver Councilman

Don Galante

The new chairman was supported the County’s legislative delegation and freeholders.   Sadeghi was supported by Gilmore.

Former Monmouth County GOP Executive Director Tom Szymanski managed Holman’s campaign.  Szymanski had a very good week.  He managed Rob Acerra’s winning campaign in Ocean Township too.
