Former Morristown Mayor Donald Cresitello throws hat into freeholder ring

Former Mayor Donald Cresitello wants to serve again in Morristown–up the street from town hall, as a Morris County freeholder.

Donald has filed to run in the June 4 Democratic primary on a slate with Thomas J. Moran of Randolph and Mark H. Stein of Stirling. Morristown resident Roger L. Holman also is running as a Democrat, reports The Daily Record.

Three three-year seats will be contested.

The Democrats will try to oust incumbent Republicans Douglas Cabana and Freeholder Director Thomas Mastrangelo. Roxbury Deputy Mayor Kathy DeFillippo, Stephen DeHart of Pequannock and and Whippany resident Barbara Eames also have entered the GOP primary.

Donald  Cresitello served as mayor in the 1970s and again in the late 2000s. He lost the 2009 primary to the present mayor, Tim Dougherty.  Donald also ran for Senate in the 2008 primary.

Five Republicans are vying for the nomination to replace retiring Morris County Clerk Joan Bramhall. They include Freeholder Ann Grossi,  accountant Zbigniew Nowacki from the county treasurer’s office; Jefferson Councilman Michael Sanchelli; former Parsippany Councilman James J. Vigilante; and Laurie Bogaard, a lawyer from Chester.

The winner will run against Democrat Terry O’Connor Redwine in the fall.

Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford is unopposed in the GOP primary; his opponent in November will be Democrat Mark Dombrowski, a former Sheriff’s Officer.
