Monmouth GOP prepares for sheriff’s primary

The buzz in Monmouth County coming off of yesterday’s filing deadline is a Republican Primary for the GOP nomination for sheriff. 

Acting Sheriff Shaun Golden of Howell has the backing of the GOP county organization.

He will receive a challenge from Middletown resident Daniel Peters.

Golden became acting sheriff in January after Kim Guadagno assumed the office of lieutenant governor.

Democrat Eric Brophy of Wall also filed to run.
