Rumors threaten career of Monmouth Freeholder

Keep an eye on Monmouth County Freeholder Anna Little. There is considerable speculation that Republicans could seek to replace her on the organization line when she runs for re-election this year. The GOP must defend two of their four seats in 2007 and are concerned that unsubstantiated rumors of potential ethical infractions could hurt their chances to maintain control of county government. Little, an ex-Highlands Councilwoman, won a hotly contested special election to fill the seat of Amy Handlin, who had been elected to the State Assembly. She won an unexpired term last November, but is up for re-election this year. Democrats won the seat of longtime GOP Freeholder Theodore Narozanick, with former Freehold Councilwoman Barbara McMorrow defeating Manalapan Committeeman Andrew Lucas.
