Former Pequannock mayor Cathy Winterfield will seek the Republican nomination for Morris County freeholder on a slate with Donald Dinsmore and William Felegi.
They will oppose three Republican incumbents – Doug Cabana, Tom Mastrangelo and Kathy DeFilippo – in the June primary.
Winterfield’s candidacy comes one year after losing her bid for re-election in the Republican primary. She finished fourth with 18% of the vote.
“Public service is an honor that I take seriously and with gratitude. I am excited to bring my intellect and vision to the whole county and to represent our part of the county that has been underrepresented on the Freeholder Board for decades,” said Winterfield. “With my commitment to historical preservation and student development, I feel that our team is best suited to serve the needs of Morris County residents for years to come”
Winterfield is a financial administrator at Seton Hall University.
Cabana, Mastrangelo and DeFilippo this week announced endorsements nine of the ten members of the State Assembly who represent Morris County. Only Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) did not endorse the incumbents.
Four Republican state senators representing Morris are also backing Cabana, Mastrangelo and DeFilippo. Only State Sen. Joe Pennacchio (R-Montville), the executive director of the Morris County Republican Committee, is not.
