Township Council President James J. Byrnes and Councilman Kevin M. Askew coasted to easy wins in the race for the Ward 1 and Ward 2 seats.
Byrnes received 2,040 votes, or 60.48 percent for the Ward 1 seat. Lynn Hansen, his Democratic challenger, received 39.49 percent, according to figures provided by the Ocean County Clerk's Office.
Byrnes - the former longtime president of the Berkeley Board of Education - was appointed to the Township Council Ward 1 seat in January, to replace Karen Davis, who resigned because of health reasons.
Askew was also appointed to the Ward 2 seat in January, to replace Carmen F. Amato Jr., who was elected mayor in November 2011.
Askew received 2,440 votes, or 57 percent, compared to his Democratic challenger Brooke Hollister, who received 1,840 votes, or 42.9 percent.
Control of the seven-member Township Council remains solidly in Republican control.
