Hamilton Township Deputy Mayor Nelson Gaskill has dropped his candidacy for the GOP Freeholder-At-Large nomination in Atlantic County. Gaskill, who switched parties earlier this year, said Atlantic County Republicans have plenty of qualified candidates. This month, Freeholder Frank Giordano switched from Democrat to Republican, giving the GOP a 7-2 majority.
"Nelson Gaskill is a statesman and his decision to step aside in deference to long-term Republicans shows just what a first-class act he is. We're honored to have him in our ranks," said Maureen Bugdon, Vice Chair of the Atlantic County RepublicanCommittee.
