Conrad steps in to 1st District race

Upper Township Committeeman Frank Conrad will enter the competitive county committee process for the party nod in the 1st Legislative District.

“It is my pleasure to ask for your endorsement as a Republican Candidate for the General Assembly Seat representing District 1 in the November 2009 general election,” Conrad wrote in a letter of intent to the Republican parties of the district’s 3 counties: Cape May, Cumberland and Atlantic.

Conrad hopes to get the Republican nomination to take on incumbents Nelson Albano (D-Vineland) and Matt Milam (D-Vineland). County committee members from the district’s towns in each county will decide who gets to run on the party line in the June primary.

Already running for the nomination is fellow Cape May County resident Michael Donohue, an attorney who ran last year, and Sam Fiocchi, a businessman from Vineland in Cumberland County. Donohue is widely considered the favorite to get the party’s nomination, so the competition for the second spot on the ballot will likely be between Conrad and Fiocchi.
