Point Pleasant Councilman Tom Toohey announced he would run for Mayor Stephen Reid’s seat if, and only if, the latter wins the primary race for retiring Assemblyman David Wolfe’s (R-Brick) seat.
“I love Point Pleasant Beach, and as a Councilman I am indebted to our residents for their support over the last five years,” Toohey said. “As a neighbor, I am humbled by the outpouring of encouragement over the last few weeks, and as a husband and father I am blessed to have a family who unequivocally backs my commitment to our community every day. With the encouragement of my wife Suzanne, I would like to announce my intention to run for Mayor.”
Reid, Council President Tom Vogel, Councilman Bob Santanello and Councilman Andy Corte are backing Toohey’s bid.
