At The Polls: Your Washington Twp. Primary Election Voting Guide

Two vie for local governing body, heated battle shapes up for District 7 congressman.

At The Polls: Your Washington Twp. Primary Election Voting Guide

A much different looking June Primary Election is set for Tuesday’s polls in Washington Township compared to 2013, and we’ve got your voting guide right here.

Locally, two newcomers will battle for a spot on the November General Election ballot, seeking a three-year term on the Washington Township Committee.

Republicans Matt Murello and Ron Edwards are running for the spot, which is being vacated by longtime committeeman Tracy Tobin, whose term will end Dec. 31, 2014. Tobin announced he would not seek an additional term at the January reorganization meeting.

No petitions have been filed by township Democrats to be included on the ballot.

At the county level, Freeholder William “Hank” Lyon is running unopposed and John Pecoraro is also unchallenged for another term as surrogate.

Don’t think your ballots are old or duplicates, either, when you see the race for Congressional District 7, as Representative Leonard Lance is opposed by challenger David Larsen for the third time.

Township residents spoke out about the congressional race in Letters to the Editor, which can be seen hereand here.
