Hammonton candidates unchallenged in primary
HAMMONTON – The primary election for Hammonton Town Council will be missing the suspense of last year's vote.
Town Republicans had a choice of six candidates to choose from in 2014 when the party split into two factions, however, with a united party, three candidates run unopposed this year.
Current councilman Mickey Pullia, Joe Giralo and Otto Hernandez are the three Republican candidates in the primary, which will be held June 2.
The lone Democrat in the primary is Rocky Colasurdo, a former councilman for both the Republicans and Hammonton First parties.
Hammonton First candidates, who run as Independents, are expected to announce their candidacy for the General Election at 5 p.m. on May 31 at DiDonato's Family Fun Center, 1151 S. White Horse Pike.
