In Cherry Hill, maybe a rematch

Susan Shin Angulo could face Nancy Feller O’Dowd for a third time

Nancy Feller O’Dowd is expected to seek the Republican nomination for mayor of Cherry Hill, which could set up another rematch with Democrat Susan Shin Angulo.

Two-term mayor Chuck Cahn is not seeking re-election to a third term and Shin Angulo, a Camden County freeholder, is the leading candidate to replace him.

O’Dowd ran against Shin Angulo for a Cherry Hill township council seat in 2009 and came within 474 votes of becoming the first Republican to win since 1991.  She ran far ahead of Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie, who lost Cherry Hill by 1,926 votes to Gov. Jon Corzine.

In 2013, O’Dowd made a second bid for council and ran 1,887 votes behind Shin Angulo and 3,664 votes behind Christie, who carried Cherry Hill by 4,352 votes.

Two years later, O’Dowd made a third bid for township council and lost by 2,778 votes to Democrat Brian Bauerle.

On Saturday, the New Jersey Libertarian Party nominated Richard Bowen, a 59-year-old CPA who served as deputy campaign manager for Murray Sabrin’s U.S. Senate race, to run for one of the three Cherry Hill council seats this year.
