The Asbury Park Press today endorsed Freeholder Director Lillian Burry and her Republican running mate, former Red Bank Councilman John Curley, for Monmouth County Freeholder.
"This year, two seats now held by Republicans are up for grabs," the editorial reads. "If the Democrats capture just one of them, they will control the board for the first time in two decades. We believe voters would be better served by retaining the 3-2 Republican majority, re-electing Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, who, despite missteps, has done a credible job during her first three-year term, and…Curley…"
The Presstook time to praise Curley, whom it describes as a fiscal conservative and strong proponent of pay-to-play reform and transparency in government.
Burry and Curley are running against businesswoman AmyMallet and retired Hazlet detective Glenn Mason.
