NewJerseyGlobe reported earlier this week that the Dems had four candidates vying to for the two Freeholder nominations. MMM has learned that one of the candidates, Elizabeth Lawrence of Marlboro, a staffer of Assemblyman Gary Schaer (D-Passaic) has withdrawn as a candidate. When we called Lawrence at Schaer’s Passaic office to confirm her withdrawl, the person who answered the phone said the staff was not allowed to talk about campaigns and abruptly ended the call.
