When the September deadline for candidates to submit their petitions for Highlands’ non-partisan municipal elections passed, many in town were disappointed and concerned that there were only three candidates to choose from for the two seats.
Council President Carolyn Broullon is an obvious choice for reelection. It’s hard to believe Broullon is finishing only her first term. She as accomplished a great deal in her three years on the council and has made a positive difference in the community.
Friends of former Councilman John Urbanski have launched a Write-In campaign to draft Urbanski into service. I’m writing John in and I urge my neighbors in town to do the same. Johnny says he’s willing. We all know he’s able.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Highlands, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2018 elections, Carolyn Broullon, Highlands, John Urbanski, Monmouth County News | 1 Comment »
The Monmouth County Democratic Party has endorsed incumbent Councilwoman Tara Ryan-Killeen for reelection in the non-partisan municipal election in Highlands on November 3.
In a sponsored advertisement on facebook, Chairman Vin Gopal’s organization lists every nominated Democratic candidate in Monmouth County on the County, State and Municipal levels, plus Ryan-Killeen in the non-partisan election in Highlands. The Democrats did not endorse any candidates in the only other non-partisan election this November, in Tinton Falls, which is uncontested.
Incumbent Councilman Kevin Redmond, who ran with Ryan-Killeen as a Democrat when they ran in 2012, did not receive the endorsement of Gopal’s organization. Highlands changed to non-partisan municipal elections in 2014.
Redmond and Ryan-Killeen appear to be running together, as the share a facebook page, lawn signs and have issued a joint mailer. However, they have different slogans on the ballot.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2015 Elections, Highlands, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats | Tags: Billy Caizza, Carolyn Broullon, Claudette D'Arrigo, Highlands, Kevin Redmond, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth Dems, Tara Ryan, Tara Ryan-Killeen, Vin Gopal | 5 Comments »
