The Bridgewater Republican organization has endorsed Michael Kirsch and Timothy Ring to run for township council on a slate with mayoral candidate Matthew Moench.

There are two seats up this year: Moench is giving up his seat to challenge mayor Daniel Hayes in the Republican primary and councilwoman Christine Henderson Rose did not seek party support for re-election.  She is running with Hayes.

The local GOP organization has already endorsed Moench.

Kirsch is the zoning board vice chairman who served as deputy mayor and township committeeman in Green Brook before moving to Bridgewater.

Ring is the deputy chief of the Green Knoll Rescue Squad.

Moench said the selection of Kirsch and Ring show “a party unified in its support of candidates that reflect its ideals and represent its values.”

“Together we have built a ticket that will fight taxes, fight over development and preserve our quality of life,” said Moench.  “I am excited to run alongside these two fine upstanding gentlemen with a real history of service to the community.”

Correction: an earlier version of this story stated that Rose was not seeking re-election.  She did not seek party support for re-election.
