Done Deal: Singer, Kean and Rible comprise the 30th District Ticket

By Art Gallagher

Senators Robert Singer and Sean Kean have come to an agreement that has Singer running for Senate in the new 30th legislative district and Kean running for Assembly.  Assemblyman Dave Rible will complete the Monmouth-Ocean GOP ticket in the district.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as the Senator for coastal Monmouth County’s 11th District for the last four years,” said Senator Kean.  “I care deeply about this state and refuse to let a political hit job by the Democratic redistricting commissioners derail my desire to serve.  I have been in the trenches of Governor Christie’s efforts to bring fiscal discipline and property tax relief to the most highly taxed people in America since the beginning.  That is a fight on which I have no intention of giving up.  After a great deal of thought and consultation with family, friends, and supporters, I have decided to seek election to the Assembly in the new 30th District.  Bob Singer and I have a great working relationship representing adjacent districts in the Senate and a tremendous amount of mutual respect.  I look forward to working with him for the good of our newly shared constituents in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.”

Singer said he looks forward running with Kean in the upcoming campaign.  “Sean is a talented legislator who works hard for the people he represents,” said Singer.  “We need him in the Legislature to stand with the taxpayers after the damage done to New Jersey by ten years of unchecked Democratic control of Trenton.  I want to thank him for putting the needs of the people we serve and party unity ahead of personal ambition, and look forward to serving with him and Assemblyman Rible in our new district.”

    I hope there is a codicil to this in that there is no opposition to Sean retaking a Senate seat when Singer FINALLY retires.

    Oh, wait…he might get redistricted again.

    This form of redistricting has GOT to go
