Gilmore in trouble

One of the races to watch tomorrow is in Hamilton Township, where Democrat Glen Gilmore may be in trouble as he battles Republican John Bencivengo in his bid for a third term. Gilmore, once viewed as a rising star in state Democratic politics, has refused to release budget and audit information — leaving some voters to believe that he is looking to hide a tax hike until after Tuesday.

On Friday, a Superior Court Judge refused Gilmore’s request to stop the GOP-controlled Council from subpoenaing the audit.

Gilmore was first elected in 1999, following the retirement of Republican Jack Rafferty after 24 years in office.
