Alison Deeb has decided to seek re-election to her Morristown council seat and has dropped plans to run for the State Assembly.
Deeb had been seeking the open 25th district Assembly seat of Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris Township), who is leaving the legislature after twelve terms and running for Morris County surrogate.
Her departure from the race leaves three candidates looking to run with incumbent Anthony Bucco (R-Boonton): Denville councilman Brian Bergen, attorney John Barbarula, and Aura Dunn, who served as Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen’s district director.
Bucco, who is seeking re-election to a sixth term, does not have a lock on renomination. He will need to finish among the top two in the June Republican primary.
Deeb did not immediately respond to a 2:08 PM call seeking comment.
