Pino drops recount bid

By David Wildstein, June 21 2019 12:35 pm

Tim Pino has dropped his bid for a recount in the race for the Republican nomination for Somerset County Sheriff, the County Clerk’s office told the New Jersey Globe.

Pino filed for a recount earlier this week after losing the June 4 Republican primary by 238 votes out of more than 14,000 cast.

North Plainfield Chief of Police Bill Parenti will face Democrat Darren Russo, a retired Franklin Township police lieutenant, in the general election.

Russo came within one percentage point of winning the post in 2016 against incumbent Frank Provenzano.

Provenzano is retiring after eighteen years as Sheriff.

  1. Another candidate on the losing end of a King Penna run campaign. How does this clown continue to get work?
