Lunging Larry Luttrell to seek Democrat nomination for Monmouth County Freeholder

Larry ‘The Lunger’ Luttrell , a Democrat lawyer from Holmdel, is running for Monmouth County Freeholder for the third time, according to  report at InsiderNJ.

Luttrell earned the moniker The Lunger as a freeholder candidate in 2014.  During a debate at the Four Seasons Club House in Manalapan, Luttrell jumped from his seat and lunged towards Freeholder Lillian Burry when she asked him, “Is your name Pinocchio?” in response to a comment he made distorting her record.

This year maybe we’ll call Luttrell The Masochist because he apparently likes to be beaten.   In addition to losing his freeholder race to Burry in 2014, he lost to Serena DiMaso in 2013.  He lost a bid to be elected to the Holmdel Township Committee in 2012 and again last year.

All those beatings earned Luttrell’s wife, Renee, a five year term on the Monmouth County Tax Board.

Luttrell does not yet know if he will be running against Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger (Scharfenberger will be sworn in on Saturday to the freeholder seat vacated by DiMaso taking office in the state Assembly) or Hazlet Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley.    Kiley will be nominated on Saturday by the GOP for the seat currently held by disgraced Freeholder John Curley.

According to the InsiderNJ report Luttrell is taking credit for the all Republican Freeholder Board selling the County owned nursing homes in 2015.

    Sounds like a BIG conflict of interest should the husband win and the wife is a sitting Monmouth County Tax Board Commissioner.

    A bully who hates Lillian… This guy would be like having a second Curley on the board. Curley, Larry; all we need is Moe!

    the Monmouth GOP always fields the more qualified candidates. Interested to see whom else the Dems think would be better than our people. It’s the biggest fear, after the millions they wheeled into LD 11 last year, how much they will dump on us this year. No matter the exaggerations or lies, it is tough to beat millions!
