Former Wall Township Mayor Ned Thomson was elected to the State Assembly representing the 30th legislative district tonight at a special election convention of the LD 30 County Committee.

With 83 votes from the 154 delegates present, Assemblyman Thomson easily surpassed the 50% +1 requirement to be elected.

Justin Flancbaum, the Executive Director of the  Lakewood Municipal Utility Authority received 53 votes.  Former Belmar councilman Jim Bean received 18.

Thomson received the GOP nomination for the Assembly seat in this fall’s general election by acclamation.

The new assemblyman replaces Dave Rible in the Assembly.  Rible became the Director of the NJ Division of Alcohol Beverage Control last month.

  1. So the big towns said at 10:33 pm on August 14th, 2017:

    win, again.. that was pretty much a given, but there was some hope. Obvious that for anyone from a small town to succeed any more, new coalitions would need to be formed- but, between the work that takes, and the arm- twisting that goes on from up top, it’s understandable many feel: “oh, what the hell, why bother, any more?” Am sure they will win, barring a clean Democrat sweep…time will tell…

  2. Time Now to replace Singer said at 7:54 am on August 15th, 2017:

    Singer has done a bad job in Senate, time to elect Sean back to that seat. Do it golden boy.
