Louis Valori, Roman Hirniak and Peter King—the three Republican challengers who are putting themselves up against the incumbent freeholders in Morris County—formally announced their candidacy Tuesday morning. The three will be challenging fellow Republicans Douglas Cabana, Tom Mastrangelo and Kathy DeFillippo.
“Lou Valori, Roman Hirniak and Peter King are an incredible team comprised of three experienced leaders with proven records of success,” said campaign manager Steve Kush in a statement. “Their life and professional experiences, coupled with their community involvement, give them the unique skill sets required to achieve their goals of bringing ethics reform and common sense to the freeholder board, to make Morris County an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”
According to Kush, the challengers are the “conservative Republicans who will bring about the changes needed in Morris County’s government.” He also said that, under their leadership, there would “be no more attempts at Democrat infiltration or cronyism.”
Valori currently serves as the Parsippany council president, Hirniak is the mayor of Randolph and King is an Army veteran and Morris Plains attorney. They are running as the “Morris County United” ticket. They will be facing off against the incumbents during the June 7 primary.
The kickoff event was held at the Jefferson Diner in Lake Hopatcong.
