Tim Pino had filed for a recount in the race for the Republican nomination for Somerset County Sheriff, County Clerk Steve Peter confirmed.

Pino lost the June 4 GOP primary to Bill Parenti by 238 votes out of  nearly 14,00 cast — 7,120 to 6,882 – a 50.73% – 49.03% margin.

Parenti, the North Plainfield chief of police, was running on the Republican organization line.  Pino, a retired Sheriff’s Department K-9 commander, mounted an off-the-line race allied with Matt Moench, who ousted Bridgewater Mayor Dan Hayes in the GOP primary.
