No Contest for Township Committee

Mayor, running unopposed, gets all but one vote in the Republican Primary.

As election nights go in Millburn, it was pretty ho-hum.

Mayor Sandy Haimoff faced no challenger in the Republican Primary and no one was on the ballot for the Democrats, so the contest for the Township Committee was over practically before it started.

There was only one Republican write-in vote, so Haimoff's 540 votes easily gave her 99.82 percent of the vote.

While 382 Democrats voted in Millburn and Short Hills in the primary, they had no one running for Township Committee so if they wanted to vote for someone, they would have to write them in.

Seven voters did just that.

Wow, thanks for letting the public know the importance of WRITE IN votes AFTER the election!

You know...... I get where you are coming from MOKeef--it's been a tough year with the mayor especially relative to communications.....but on the other hand, how come no one else is running? At a certain point we need to let our volunteers be if no else is willing to step up. It's not a paid position right? I don't have a lot of respect for any write-in candidates because the first rule of doing something well is wanting it....... If no else wants it (including you or me) then I have to grudgingly say thanks to her and hope she has a better second term. Wondering what the scoop is with school board elections. That's another position I would never want.

I believe Township Comm has nominal pay (maybe $15,000?) and BOE is unpaid volunteer.

The township committee nominal pay is $7,500.

All of posts I've read over the last year ripping her apart seem very shallow now. Many people talking the talk but it seems she is the only one walking the walk.
