Monmouth County Freeholder John Curley failed to file 25 signatures to be on the ballot for the February Monmouth GOP convention, so he won’t be eligible to seek re-election on the organization line, according to a report on More Monmouth Musings.
What’s surprising is that Curley even bothered to file a letter of intent. Following a vote by the rest of the Board of Freeholders to censure him after allegations of sexual harassment, GOP County Chairman Shaun Golden said Curley would not run again on the organization line.
Curley has not announced whether he will run off the line in the primary, run as an independent, or simply retire.
