By a vote of 40-0 last March, Monroe Township Democrats have dumped Mayor Daniel Teefy from their organization line and endorsed Councilman Rich DiLucia to run against him.

On Tuesday, Democratic primary voters ratified the pick when DiLucia defeated Teedy by a 47%-40% margin, 1,885 to 1,605.  Michael Gabbianelli finished third with 552 votes.

The unanimous vote of the party’s executive committee also included a rejection of Teefy’s council slate.

DiLucia is retired as the vice president of AFSCME Local 1099.

Katherine Falcone, Pat O’Reilly and Greg Wolfe, running for council on DiLucia’s ticket, also won.

In the general election, DiLucia will face Republican William Gilson.  Gilson, who ran unopposed for the GOP nomination, lost a race for Gloucester County Surrogate in 2017.
