Report: Rich not running for re-election as Monmouth County Freeholder

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Gary Rich is reporting that an anonymous Monmouth County source has said that Freeholder Gary Rich will not be running for re-election in November.

“Chairman Shaun Golden sat down with Rich last night to tell him the organization is going in another direction and Rich opted not to fight,” the site reported their source said.

MMM has confirmed that Golden and Rich met yesterday, but it is not clear if Golden is pushing Rich out or if the two term Freeholder is leaving on his own volition. Rich has been giving mixed signals  about his intentions; he has told people he is running, but he has not raised any money nor attended any political events recently.   He has left at least two Freeholder meetings early since the first of the year.  Neither Golden or Rich have responded messages seeking confirmation of their meeting’s content and tone.

This Saturday, March 4th is the deadline for candidates to file a Letter of Intent to seek the Monmouth GOP’s endorsement for the freeholder seats currently held by Rich and Freeholder Lillian Burry.   Burry told Golden that she would let him know if she’s running again by tomorrow, Wednesday March 1.

If Rich withdraws, which is still unconfirmed, Holmdel Township Committeeman Pat Impreveduto is expected to file a Letter of Intent.  Atlantic Highlands Councilman Peter Doyle and Middletown Township Committeeman Steve Massell are also expected to compete for the seat.

If Burry decides not to seek a fifth term, Hazlet Mayor Sue Kiley is expected to join the fray.
