Little Silver Mayor Bob Neff overwhelmingly defeated self-promoter Rick Brandt in the Republican Primary on Tuesday night, 1092-376, likely securing a third term leading the borough’s local government. Council members Don Galante and Corinne Thygeson were unopposed in the primary.
Democrats did not nominate a candidate. There were Democrat 63 write-in votes for mayor and 26 for council, including votes for Neff, Brandt and Mickey Mouse. Borough Clerk Kimberly Jungfer told MMM that no candidate received the 21 write-in votes required to win the nomination for mayor or council.
The County Clerk’s Office confirmed that no candidates have filed to run as Independents for either mayor or council.
