Sheriff is most likely candidate for Niemann’s job

Monmouth County Republican sources say that if Sheriff Joseph Oxley decides he wants to be the next County Chairman, the party will support his bid. He is said to be leaning toward running, and may announce his candidacy at a May 18 fundraiser. If Oxley decides not to run, insiders say Rumson Mayor John Ekdahl may emerge as the consensus candidate. Madeline Ferraro, a former Appointments Counsel to Governor Christine Todd Whitman and now a lobbyist for Atlantic Health Sysems, is reportedly actively exploring a bid for County Chairman.
