Selika Josiah Gore is elected unanimously as new Chairwoman
Marlboro- Christopher Dean resigned as Chairman of the Marlboro Republican committee yesterday. Selika Josiah Gore was unanimously elected by the committee members as the new Chairwoman.
Gore is a wife and mother of two teen-aged boys. An attorney who works as an executive at the New Jersey Motor Vehicles Commission, she was the Deputy Campaign Manager for Scott Sipprelle’s 2010 run for congress and has considerable experience in state, county and local campaigns. She has served as Vice Chair of the Marlboro Republicans for the last four years.
“I’m honored to have the support of my Committee members, said Gore, “I look forward to working with our county and state partners to continue to build a solid Republican organization in Marlboro. We need to focus on fielding the best candidates to bring our message of smaller government and fiscal responsibility to the people of Marlboro. That is what I plan to do.”
Dean, the husband of Marlboro Board of Education Vice President Victoria Dean, said that he was convinced that the recent controversy over his wife’s facebook posts were politically motivated attacks on his family designed to give the Democrats an issue to run on in the upcoming municipal election.
“I love my wife more than I love politics or any political position,” Mr. Dean said. “Our political opponents have twisted and exaggerated my wife’s facebook activity and politicized the Board of Education. I am stepping down for the good of my family, for the good of Marlboro and to eliminate the distraction.”
