Atlantic County Republican Chairman Keith Davis announced today that he has secured a voting machine from the Superintendent of Elections for next Tuesday?s special county committee election to fill the vacancy of retiring State Senator Bill Gormley.
?The process of selecting our next State Senator has been open and fair. When the vote takes place next Tuesday, it will be by secret ballot, behind a curtain,? Davis said. ?Our Republican County Committee members have risen to the occasion and taken their job seriously. They know that this vote is a critical one for our party and for the residents of the Second Legislative District.
?I am very proud of the way the two candidates ? Assemblyman Frank Blee and Mayor Sonny McCullough ? have conducted themselves throughout the course of this campaign,? said Davis. ?They have talked to every County Committee member and discussed the important issues that impact our region.
?Both candidates have indicated to me that they will fully support the decision of the County Committee next Tuesday ? no matter what the result ? and that will translate into a united Republican Party for this fall?s campaign,? said Davis. ?We are fortunate to have such capable people in our party that are willing to serve the public. This race has energized our party and that will serve us well for the rest of the year.?
