Millville cancels 2018 election

Date Published:

Two candidates registered for the two seats up for election in 2018, so the Millville Town Council election has been canceled.

With no opponents, incumbent Steve Maneri and challenger Ronald Belinko will be sworn in at the regular council meeting on March 13 at 7 p.m. Each seat carries a term of two years.

Both live in major housing developments in town — Belinko in Bishop’s Landing and Maneri in Millville By the Sea.

Council Member Valerie Faden did not register to run for a second term. Although Lisa Hudson had initially intended to run, she withdrew her name after the filing deadline. So, the March 3 election is no longer contested, and therefore no longer needed.

Town Manager Debbie Botchie estimated that Millville hasn’t had a contested election since 2009.
