Robert Olejar, a 68-year-old political unknown from Randolph, has become the sixth Republican to enter the race for Anthony M. Bucco’s vacant Assembly seat.
Republican county committee members from the 25th district will meet on November 21 to fill the remaining seven weeks of Bucco’s current term. Bucco resigned last month to replace his late father in the State Senate.
Olejar practices law in Randolph, where his firm specializes in federal criminal defense trials and forensic accounting investigations.
He will face Assistant Morris County Counsel John Barbarula, Mendham Township Deputy Mayor Sarah Neibart, former Frelinghuysen district director Aura Dunn, Morristown Councilwoman Alison Deeb and Pfizer executive Al Ribeiro.
