In Bergen County, it’s not good to be a Republican Freeholder

Two of the last three Republican Freeholders from Bergen County have been denied party support for re-election to a second term. In 2004, Louis Tedesco lost his bid for a second term amidst allegations that he had been arrested twice on domestic violence charges. Yesterday, Lisa Randall, elected to the Board of Freeholders in 2003 after serving in Governor Christie Whitman’s cabinet as Commissioner of Banking and Insurance and as a State Assemblywoman, lost the Republican primary. Democrats have a 7-1 majority on the Freeholder Board.
