November election could go uncontested in four local towns

BY JANE MEGGITT Correspondent

Unless there are write-in votes for candidates in the June 7 primary election, there will be no local contests in the November general election.

In Upper Freehold, Republican Robert Frascella is running for his second term on the Township Committee and the sole seat available this year. No Democrats filed to run.

In neighboring Allentown, Republican Mayor Stuart Fierstein is running for his sixth term. Daniel Zorovich, who ran for a one-year unexpired seat on the Borough Council last year, is running for a third three-year term. Council President Michael Schumacher is running for his seventh term. No Democrats filed to run.

Mayor Beth Battel will run again for her second full term on the Borough Council in Roosevelt. Battel served as the borough’s mayor for nearly two years after former mayor Neil Marko was ousted in a recall election on Feb. 7, 2006. Jeff Ellentuck will run for his third term on the all-Democratic Borough Council. Councilman Daniel Hoffman decided not to pursue a fourth term, and newcomer Robert Atwood will run for his seat. No Republicans filed to run.

In Millstone Township, Republican Councilman Fiore Masci will run for a second term as will Deputy Mayor Michael Kuczinski. No Democrats filed to run.
