The Berkeley Township Regular Republican Organization is looking for residents interested in running for the two Township Council seats up this year.
"Interested candidates should send in their resumes as soon as possible, and no later than March 17, so that they may interviewed by the screening committee, which meets on a day prior to the screening convention," club President said recently.
The two seats up this year are the Ward 1 and Ward 2 seats. Any registered Republicans interested in screening should send a letter of interest along with their resume to club Trustee Anthony DePaola, 16 Beaumont Court, Toms River, NJ 08757.
Interested candidates who are not members of the club can obtain a membership application from club membership secretary Fran Siddons at (908) 330-2341.
Screening committee interviews are required in order to be considered at the screening convention, Fulcomer said.
The screening convention members have the final say in the Republican organization line for the upcoming June primary.
The Ward 1 seat - which includes Bayville, South Seaside Park and Pelican Island - was vacated on Jan. 1, when Township Councilwoman stepped down because of health reasons.
Former longtime Berkeley Board of Education President was appointed to the Ward 1 seat in early January. Byrnes was then selected to be Township Council President.
The Ward 2 seat- which includes most of Pinewald other sections of town west of Route 9 and some parts of Holiday Heights — was vacated when Mayor was sworn in as mayor on New Year's Day. Kevin Askew was appointed to take his place.
Candidates can obtain a list of the screening convention members for a $5 fee made out to RROCBT. The fee must be either mailed or delivered to Siddons at 11 Roman Street, Toms River, NJ 08757.
"The membership list may be used to promote their candidacy through the mail," Fulcomer said.
