Gannon loses in Spring Lake Heights

Richard Gannon, a former Clinton White House aide who also worked for Frank Lautenberg, Bill Bradley and Jim Florio, lost his bid for re-election to a seat on the Spring Lake Heights Borough Council. Gannon, the state Director of the Clinton/Gore ’92 campaign and now a lobbyist in the Washington office of Winning Strategies, lost the Democratic primary largely because he lost the support of the popular Mayor, Elwood Malick. The Asbury Park Press had reported during the campaign that Malick was opposing Gannon’s re-election because he was confrontational and difficult to work with. Gannon lost by 78 votes — 297-218.
