GOP senators back Selen in Morris County

By David Wildstein, December 01 2022 3:58 pm

Five Republican state senators who represent Morris County have endorsed Tayfun Selen for re-election as a county commissioner.

State Sens. Anthony Bucco (R-Boonton), Joseph Pennacchio (R-Montville), Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield), Kristin Corrado (R-Totowa) and Steve Oroho (R-Franklin) , who collectively represent all 39 municipalities in the county, have signed on in support of Selen.

“I’m honored to have earned the support of our Morris County Republican delegation in the State Senate,” Selen said.  “As they lead the fight against the tax, spend, and borrow policies of the Murphy Administration in Trenton, they recognize just how important it is to have fiscally conservative leaders back in our counties and municipalities that are working to keep things affordable for taxpayers.”

Selen, who won a 2020 special election convention, and subsequently a general election, is seeking another term as a county commissioner.

While he has been viewed as vulnerable after losing a GOP congressional primary last June in New Jersey’s 11th district, Selen appears to have solidified party support for his re-election.  He already has the backing of Sheriff James Gannon, five county commissioners, and more than a dozen and a half GOP mayors.

“My goal for another term on the Board is to continue bringing an outside business perspective to Morris County government, ensuring efficient spending, keeping taxes low, advancing public safety, and planning for the future,” said Selen.
