Democrats and Republicans each held their seats on the Cumberland County Board of Freeholders and Democratic County Clerk Celeste Riley survived a relatively close race to win re-election to a second term.
Republican Douglas Albrecht, a former Vineland councilman, was the top vote-getter with 12,082 votes, followed by Democratic incumbent Darlene Barber with 11,833. She just narrowly defeated Republican Jeffrey Bordley (11,387), with Democrat Christopher Jennings (10,945) running fourth.
Riley, a former assemblywoman, defeated Republican Victoria Lods by 1,423 votes, a 53%-47% margin.
The lone Republican freeholder, Joseph Sparacio, did not seek re-election.
