Dems Select Two Freeholder Candidates

Former Jackson mayor, local Realtor will run against longtime incumbents


A newly chosen Democrat ticket for Ocean County freeholder will pit former Jackson mayor and local attorney Joseph Grisanti and Beachwood Realtor Patricia Barndt against Republican incumbents John C. Bartlett, Jr. and Gerry P. Little.

The November race saw changes after Democrats George Cevasco and Bonnie Verga withdrew recently as candidates. Kevin Barron, chairman of the candidate screening committee for the Ocean County Democrats, said the pair withdrew for personal reasons.

"We appreciate their interest and are sorry they weren't able to run, but we are excited and energized about Patricia Barndt and Joseph Grisanti," Barron said.

Grisanti and Barndt were nominated and unanimously chosen as the candidates at the county Democratic meeting Sunday, Barron said.

Also on the ballot for the two county seats are independents Scott Neuman of Toms River and Tracy Caprioni of Brick.

Thanks for the mention Patch.

At least Tracy and I haven't dropped out at the last minutes. Does it bother any Dems that the people you signed off on for their petitions is not now running? You want change from the same old political theater? Vote for Tracy and I.

Four sentences with three errors in grammar. I'm sure you will receive many votes.

Scott - don't feed the troll. If one types quickly on a phone or other device, unfortunately, on this system, he or she cannot go back and edit. Picking an argument apart like that is like failing to listen to someone yelling "Fire" because they're not wearing a fire hat.

"knarf" is not worth your time.
