Dinsmore running for Morris freeholder

Ex-Assembly aide could face three incumbents in GOP primary

Donald Dinsmore, a former chief counsel for the Assembly Republicans, will seek the Republican nomination for Morris County freeholder in 2019, the county Republican organization said today.

Three Republican freeholders are up for re-election next year, although all three could wind up seeking another office: Douglas Cabana is mulling a bid for surrogate, Kathy DeFillippo has not ruled out a bid for State Assembly in the 25th district, and Tom Mastrangelo could run for Assembly in the 26th district.

It’s not unusual for freeholders to face primary challenges in Morris, where Democrats have not won a freeholder face in 45 years.  

In 2018, incumbent John Cesaro lost his bid for renomination.  He was beaten by former freeholder John Krickus and former Mountain Lakes mayor Steve Shaw.

Dinsmore served in the Christie administration as a counsel for the state Motor Vehicle Commission and was chief of staff to Assemblyman Gary Chiusano.  He is allied with Morris County Republican Chairman Ron DeFilippis and now serves on the Morris GOP finance committee.

  1. Don Dinsmore has the right experience and values needed to make sure Morris County remains a great place. He will make an outstanding Freeholder and has my support.

  2. Donald Dinsmore was making 69,000 a year before he got the boot from the Motor Vehicle Commission. Now he needs another taxpayer funded job to replace his other taxpayer funded job.

  3. Dinsmore is just another Trenton Bureaucrat looking to replace his old taxpayer funded job with another. We need less bureaucrats not more. Say no to the Bureaucrat!
