After 32 years in public office, Sonny McCullough said today that he would not seek re-election as Mayor of Egg Harbor Township in November.

The 76-year-old McCullough spent 28 years as mayor and four more as a township committeeman.  He served briefly in the State Senate, winning a special election convention for State Senate after Bill Gormley resigned. With the support of Rep. Frank LoBiondo, he upset Gormley’s handpicked successor, Assembly Minority Whip Frank Blee, with 61% at the Atlantic County Republican convention.  He lost the 2007 general to Democrat Jim Whelan.
