Luttrell wants Scharfenberger to rule out Assembly run

By Nikita Biryukov, October 11 2018 5:21 pm

Monmouth County Democratic freeholder candidate Larry Luttrell wants his opponent, Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, to promise he won’t jump ship to higher office if the opportunity presents itself.

“In his classic fashion, Gerry Scharfenberger immediately looks for a taxpayer funded raise as soon as he sees one for the taking. It is obvious that appointed Freeholder Scharfenberger is hoping to jump from his $27,000 a year salary as part-time Freeholder to a $49,000 a year salary as Assemblywoman Amy Handlin’s replacement in the State Assembly,” Luttrell said. “Scharfenberger was already hoping to be the replacement for Senator Declan O’Scanlon when he left the Assembly this year.”

Lutrell wants his opponent to promise he won’t run for Assembly once Handlin’s retires from public office in 2019.
