Who will win the seat held by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.) for the past 22 years?

Wait a minute, who will win the opportunity to succeed the Harding Republican, who is retiring?

That will be decided in the primary on June 5, 2018. You can scope out most of the contenders on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area.

It starts at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm) at the Alfred Vail School, 125 Speedwell Ave., Morris Plains.

The event will have two parts. Democratic candidates square off at 7 p.m., and the Republicans go at 8:15 p.m. 

Each candidate gets two-minute opening and closing statements, sandwiched around a question-and-answer session.  A League-trained moderator recruited from outside Greater Morristown will guide the forum.

Democrats agreeing to participate: Mitchell Cobert, Tamara Harris and Mark Washburne.  Mikie Sherrill declined, but will send a written statement, according to the League.

Republican candidates Patrick Allocco and Martin Hewitt are coming. Jay Webber declined, and Peter DeNeufville and Antony Ghee did not reply, said League Voter Service Chairperson Marie Fornaro.

Co-sponsors are the Mountain Lakes League of Women Voters; Cornerstone Family Programs, the Neighborhood House, and Calvary Baptist Church, all of Morristown; St. Matthew A.M.E. Church and the First Baptist Church, both of South Orange; and the Pi Theta Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.

  1. Can someone please ask Mikie Sherrill what qualifies her to represent the people of the 11 district, when she doesn’t even live here? I don’t understand why the Dems are OK with that. Surely they can find an actual resident who is qualified to represent them.
