“I have not made a decision at this point whether or not to run for reelection,” he told PolitickerNJ. According to Felice, he plans to take some time before the February deadline to make his final choice.

“I am going to take this time to decide whether or not I will run but, at this point, I have not made that decision,” he said.

The Republican is one of only two currently serving on a freeholder board dominated by Democrats. Felice’s potential exit may open up the way for another Democrat to join the freeholder board, especially considering the decisive wins of the three Democrats who defended their seats on the board in 2015.

Felice was first elected in 2010. Prior to joining the board he served as a councilman in River Edge and as a Republican municipal chairman.
