Point Pleasant Beach Mayor Stephen Reid is moving toward a bid for the open 10th district seat of retiring Assemblyman David Wolfe (R-Brick).
“I’m very interested,” Reid said. “I’m in the process of making calls.”
Reid is a longtime fixture in Trenton, starting as an aide to Christine Todd Whitman in the governor’s office and at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and as the owner of a public affairs firm.
He was appointed to the borough council in 2011 and was elected mayor in 2015.
“This is an opportunity to represent ten towns instead of one and help people on a state level,” Reid told the New Jersey Globe. “I can help.”
Reid said he views Wolfe’s seat as a northern Ocean County seat and not a Brick seat.
“Toms River is already well represented,” said the mayor, whose town has about 5,000 residents.
Brick Republican Club President John Catalano says he is interested in succeeding Wolfe.

A lawsuit has just been filed against Point Pleasant and it’s anti-pot lying lobbyist of a Mayor that will show the public that Reid’s reefer madness campaign was all an act by a paid lobbyist. The town violated OPRA by redacting the senders and receivers of several emails that were all intended as propaganda for NJ-RAMP and SAM, the groups Reid was being to paid to lobby for…why? Why was the town clerk being used as a private secretary for Mr. Reid’s private lobbying firms client? They have some explaining to do…
