At today's Monmouth County Democratic Convention the following candidates were nominated:
11th District: Former Freeholder and Assemblyman John "Well Done" Villapiano for Senate; Asbury Park teachers' union boss John Napolitani and Teamsters Local 177 Business Agent John Pirnat for Assembly. Villapiano is an old supporter from way back of curmudgeonly County Counsel Malcolm Carton.
12th District: Senator Ellen Kärcher; Amy Mallet and Assemblyman Michael Panter for Assembly.
13th District: Leonard "ELEC" Inzerillo for Senate; Patricia Walsh and Robert C. Brown for Assembly. Inzerillo is well known for his campaign finance reporting foibles, which resulted in his withdrawal from last year's freeholder race.
Sheriff: Belmar Police Chief Jack W. Hill, Jr.
County Clerk: Amod Choudhary, a Colts Neck School Board Member.
Freeholders: Bradley Beach Mayor Stephen G. Scheuler and former Freeholder and State Senator John D'Amico. D'Amico has served as a Superior Court Judge and is retiring as Chairman of the State Parole Board. Like Villapiano, he is also an old Malcolm Carton supporter from way back. I guess, like Democratic Freeholder Barbara McMorrow, D'Amico and Villapiano are "able to serve residents without partisan bickering".

Hat tippo to Will Seward; read his post here.
