“When I was elected by the people of Mount Holly in 2012 to serve as Mayor, I swore an oath to spend the next four years making our community a safer, more economically vibrant and affordable place in which to live,” said the Republican leader. “We’re off to a good start, but there is more work to be done.

“That’s why, despite earning the endorsement of the Burlington County Republican Committee last week to run for Freeholder this year, I have decided to turn down that opportunity and commit myself to serving out my full-term in Mount Holly,” DiFolco added. “This was not an easy decision, but it is the right one.  I want to thank Chairman Bill Layton and the Burlington County GOP for their understanding, encouragement and support.  I look forward to continuing to play a big role in the party’s future in the years to come.”
