Almost-Assemblyman might run for Freeholder

Leonard Inzerillo, who came within 244 votes of upsetting Assemblyman Joseph Azzolina in 2003 but lost a Democratic Assembly primary two years later, says he is giving strong consideration to running for Monmouth County Freeholder in 2006. A former Middletown Board of Education member and firefighter, Inzerillo says he needs support of Congressman Frank Pallone and Democratic County Chairman Victor Scudiery to make the bid. Two Freeholder seats will be contested this year: the seat of seven-term GOP incumbent Theodore Narozanick, and the one soon to be vacated by Assemblywoman Amy Handlin.
