Monmouth County GOP Chairman Shaun Golden told MMM that Middletown Mayor Gerry Scharfenberger has withdrawn as a candidate for Assembly in the 13th legislative district.

“Mayor Scharfenberger called and told me that he will not be filing a Letter of Intent,” Golden said. “Gerry is a competitor.  I appreciate what it took for him to step down for the good of the Party.  Gerry is a great mayor of one of the best run towns in the State of New Jersey.  He has a great future ahead of him.”

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, the presumptive GOP nominee for State Senate in the 13th legislative district, also said he talked to Scharfenberger.

“Gerry was very gracious in stepping down and giving us the room for form a united ticket going into the convention,” O’Scanlon said. “We have gotten to know each other a lot better during this campaign.  Our relationship will serve the people of Middletown and the entire 13th district very well. I look forward to working with Gerry and the entire Middletown Township Committee in representing the interests of the Township’s citizens when I’m in the Senate.”

“Senator Joe Kyrillos is leaving me huge shoes to fill.  I am well aware that Joe’s retirement from the Senate is a big loss for Middletown. I will work everyday to fill Joe’s shoes.
