Dan Peters of Middletown has twice in the past filed to run in the Monmouth County GOP primary for Sheriff.
In 2007, Peters filed petitons to run for the seat which was being vacated by Joe Oxley, but he did not meet the residency requirement for the office. Monmouth Beach Commissioner Kim Guadagno was nominated by the GOP and was elected Sheriff.
Peters threw his hat into the ring again in 2010, mounting an unsuccessful challenge to Shaun Golden who had replaced Guadagno when she became Lt. Governor.
Peters created the Dan Peters for Sheriff facebook page on March 1, 2013. It would appear that he is preparing to make another run against Golden.
Bayshore Tea Party Group co-founder Barbara Gonzalez would not confirm or deny that Peters has the group’s backing. She offered to ask Peters to call MMM.
Sheriff Golden is unopposed for the Monmouth Republican County Committee’s endorsement which be be formalized at the GOP convention at Colts Neck High School on Saturday morning, March 23.
