Competing sign teams came to blows last evening in Atlantic Highlands when long time Pallone supporter Joe Hawley assaulted Atlantic Highlands GOP chairwoman Jane Frotten, 68.
According to Frotten, Hawley was interfering with a Little sign team in the borough when she showed up and tried to reason with the him. Hawley screamed disparaging remarks about Jane’s husband Bernie, 79, and pushed her. Jane, who serves as Anna Little’s campaign treasurer, hit him back.
The Atlantic Highlands police were called to the scene. No charges have yet to be filed.
“He probably skipped his meds,” said Frotten about her assaulter.
Hawley could not be reached for comment.
