Manasquan mayor wins primary

Edward Donovan takes 61% against Dem township committeeman

Manasquan Mayor Edward Donovan held off a challenge from Michael Mangan in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

Donovan easily defeated Mangan, a township committeeman, by 162 votes, 431 to 269 – a 61%-38% margin.

It is not immediately clear whether Donovan will have a general election opponent.   There were 77 write-in votes cast in the Republican primary after no candidate filed for the office before the April 1 deadline.

Democrats Kathleen Williams and Amelia Rendeiro ran unopposed in the Democratic primary for two township committee seats.  Incumbents Joseph Bossone and Richard Read, both Democrats, are not seeking re-election.

Republican Gregg Olivera is seeking to return to the township committee after losing his seat by 222 votes last year.
