Manchester Mayor Ken Palmer has decided not to seek the Republican nomination for State Assembly in the 10th district.
“Over the past few days I have received a number of calls and inquiries about my interest in pursuing the Assembly position for the 10th Legislative District. While I am humbled to be considered, I will not pursue that position,” Palmer said. “I am confident whomever the Ocean County Republican’s select to run in the fall, will represent the residents of the Tenth District with as much integrity and skill as David Wolfe.”
Assemblyman David Wolfe (R-Brick) announced last week that he would not seek re-election after 28 years in the legislature.
Brick Republican Club president John Catalano and Point Pleasant Beach mayor Stephen Reid are pursuing the GOP nomination.
