It appears that Ocean City Republican Municipal Chairman John McCann will be the new assembly candidate in the 1st Legislative District.
No one else submitted a letter of intent to the district’s three county chairs by today’s 4:30pm deadline.
McCann replaces Upper Township Committeeman Frank Conrad to run with Mike Donohue, an attorney from Dennis Township, against incumbents Matt Milam (D-Vineland) and Nelson Albano (D-Vineland).
“I look forward to completing the statutory process to confirm John as my running mate. We have important battles to fight on behalf of the people of South Jersey who yesterday got hit with yet another Corzine budget that raises their taxes and reduces their chances for prosperity,” said Donohue, who endorsed McCann soon after Conrad dropped out.
