Carroll won’t seek two offices this year

Democratic sources say that Bergen County Freeholder James Carroll will wait to see how next week’s Bergen County Democratic convention goes before he makes a final decision on running for re-election as Mayor of Demarest.  Carroll has decided that he will not run for both offices in the same election – although he’s legally permitted to do so – and if he wins party support for another term as Freeholder, he won’t run again for mayor.  Democrats don’t really view Carroll as being in danger of losing the convention, which was postponed until March 4 because of today’s snowstorm.
