Democrats to run Hill for sheriff

Monmouth County Democrats Saturday morning got behind Belmar Police Chief Jack Hill in his quest to be sheriff.

Upon picking up the most votes from the County Committee, Hill accepted the party's nomination and the endorsement of those who'd run against him.

That was the day's only contest. Everything else was by acclamation.

In district 12, Democrats as expected picked Fair Haven businesswoman Amy Mallett to run with Sen. Ellen Karcher and Assemblyman Michael Panter. Democrats to run Hill for sheriff
