Seth Grossman won’t be mounting an Assembly bid next year.
“I have an interest in who is going to get the nomination on the Republican side,” Grossman told the New Jersey Globe. “I’m very interested in the issues, but I will not personally be a candidate.”
For Grossman, those issues center around the state’s spending, debt and what he called insider tax breaks.
Atlantic County Freeholder Director Frank Formica and Ventnor Mayor Beth Holtzman are running as a team, as are Atlantic County Freeholder John Risley and Somers Point Councilman James Toto.
Republican candidates have so far done little more than announce their intention to mount a bid to unseat Assemblymen John Armato and Vince Mazzeo.
Given the dearth of policy details, it’s not surprising that Grossman has not yet chosen who he will support.
“I’m grateful that Jim Toto, John Risley and Frank Formica helped me during my campaign,” Grossman said. “I’m grateful for it, but if they run against each other, I have to look at which of them is closest to my issues and those of Liberty and Prosperity.”
