Toohey announces mayoral bid

By Nikita Biryukov, February 06 2019 6:02 pm

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.

One thought on “Toohey announces mayoral bid

  1. I once saw this man abuse a severely emotionally/developmentally disabled person by screaming “spaz” “spaz” at him louder and louder…egging on the victim as the victim tried harder and harder to punch his fist through a glass wall. Remember like it was yesterday and still makes me sick. Not just that. I witnessed this man being just as hostile and abusive to many others over a long period of time. Textbook abuser. Sees weakness, attacks and enjoys. I cannot believe his other than councilman job includes him having power over young people in positions of weakness. If he becomes mayor, I fear Reid’s indiscretions will appear quaint. I feel like other people must remember events like this as well.
