Scharfenberger sworn in as Monmouth County Freeholder

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon issues the Oath of Office to Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger as his family looks on.

Freehold Township- Gerry Scharfenberger of Middletown was sworn in as a Monmouth County Freeholder on Saturday immediately after the Republican County Committee elected him by acclamation to fill the vacancy on the Board that occurred when Serena DiMaso took office in the State Assembly last month.

Over 400 County Committee members convened at iPlayAmerica on Saturday morning.  In addition to electing Scharfenberger, the convention endorsed him for run for the seat in the November election.  Sue Kiley, the Deputy Mayor of Hazlet, was nominated by acclamation to run for a full three year term on the Freeholder Board.   Congressman Chris Smith was nominated to continue his representation of the 4th Congressional District in the House of Representatives.

Adam Geller, President of National Research, Holmdel, a pollster for President Trump told the gathered Republicans that, as in the 2016 election, a large part of the electorate are hidden Trump supporters.  “Republicans who run away from the president will struggle in November,” Geller said. “Those who stand with him will do just fine.”
