Raymond Dothard Is Monmouth Dems Candidate For Sheriff

Raymond Dothard of Millstone is the Monmouth County Democrats endorsed candidate for Sheriff in the June 4 primary, MMM has learned.

Kevin Tuohy, the candidate who was endorsed at the Dems mini-convention earlier this month, has withdrawn for health reasons.

Dothard, 77, was the Democrat nominee for State Senate in the 12th legislative district in 2013 and ran unsuccessfully for Millstone Township Committee last year. He graduated from Tuskegee University with a B.S. in Chemistry in 1964, according to Ballotpedia.  He served in the United States Air Force and the Air National Guard from 1964 till 1992.  He was a commercial airline pilot until 2001 and worked as an FAA  aviation safety inspector from 2002 to 2012.

Dothard is expected to challenge Sheriff  Shaun Golden in the November 5 general election, assuming they both win their party primaries on June 4.

    But come on, 77? And you’ve lost two races

    It’s time to enjoy your retirement sir instead of putting yourself out as cannon fodder.

    With all due respect.

    Raymond’s worst nightmare might be winning his own primary. Shaun Golden is the real deal, getting things done in Monmouth County, things that really matter. How many politicians can claim that.

    Golden is very popular, that’s a given, but do not discount his opponent’s popularity among the staff and guests at The Overlook Hotel.
