DiMaso will seek reelection

Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso

Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso announced this morning that she is seeking a third term representing the 13th Legislative District in the lower house of the New Jersey Legislature.

DiMaso touts a record of accomplishment, leadership and fiscal conservatism in her announcement. “Her record is witness to a public servant who takes action to serve the people of the district,” her campaign’s announcement declared.”

“Everyday my staff and I work to help get thousands of our constituents their unemployment, the nightmare these people are living is unimaginable. Those that need financial help now, we connect with non-profits that are ready and willing to help. Our dear friend Kim Guadagno ensures they get food and other necessities from Fulfill and if no one can help them we help them ourselves, whatever it takes.”

Former Lt Governor Kim Guadagno, now the CEO of Fulfill, a foodbank and social service agency that serves Monmouth and Ocean counties, announced her endorsement of DiMaso.

“Serena is a leader with a proven record of serving all the people of District 13,” Guadagno said. “She knows how Trenton works and is always there for us. As a resident of Monmouth Beach, Serena represents me and my family. I will proudly vote for a strong voice for our families and businesses and that means I will vote to return Assemblywoman DiMaso to Trenton.”

DiMaso faces a challenge from Holmdel Board of Education President Vicky Flynn for the Republican nomination. Flynn, who has the support of the Holmdel Republican County Committee and Chair Marcy McMullen, will challenge DiMaso at the Monmouth County Republican nominating convention which is scheduled be be held virtually on March 18.

Neither DiMaso or Flynn have said if they will run in the Republican primary, scheduled for June 8, or support the convention’s nominee.

Buckle up Bayshore Republicans.

    How come all of these people running for office these days seem to bury their party affliation? Wouldn’t it save everybody a lot of time if they just confessed if they’re Democrats or Republicans? Are they ashamed of their party? Why do we have to struggle to find out which side they’re on?

    in a difficult year. Ever hear of “divide and conquer?”

  3. Jose Freiwald said at 9:12 pm on March 1st, 2021:

    I don’t get it, if she doesn’t have the Monmouth GOP support, why is she running?

  4. Because she wins? said at 7:53 am on March 2nd, 2021:

    Because she gets votes, and thinks she’s done a good job?

  5. To B. Bill: said at 8:03 am on March 2nd, 2021:

    In a state with over 1 million more registered Democrats than Republicans, isn’t it a good idea to primarily put forth one’s credentials, merits and track records/ platforms?? Not too hard to look them up, either, all have bios on the state site! Geesh!

  6. Jose Freiwald said at 9:28 am on March 2nd, 2021:

    Because without Monmouth GOD’S nod, she will likely lose by a significant margin. Golden runs a modern day machine, we all know this.

  7. Her right said at 1:45 pm on March 2nd, 2021:

    to try.. see how her base feels/ if they will seek her name out on the primary ballot.
