Mendham lawyer runs for surrogate

Thompson seeks Democratic nod

By David Wildstein, January 31 2019 2:03 pm

Michael Thompson, a trusts and estates attorney from Mendham, is seeking the Democratic nomination for Morris County Surrogate.

The likely Republican candidate is Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris Township), who is not seeking re-election to his 25th district Assembly seat after 24 years in the legislature.

Incumbent John Pecoraro is not seeking re-election after 20 years as surrogate.

“The role of the County Surrogate should be one of the least political jobs in government,” Thompson said.  “My biggest liability in not being a politician is that I’m fairly unknown. I look forward to meeting with Morris County residents to explain why my particular set of skills makes me the best candidate to be the next Morris County Surrogate.”
