Time to pick from the hat!

Tomorrow afternoon is a big day for the 11 Republicans seeking three freeholder nominations this June;

At 3 p.m., Joan Bramhall, the county clerk, will select ballot positions _ literally by picking the names out of an old hat-box.

Suffice to say, being first on the ballot will be better than being ninth or tenth.

    wonder why the incumbents do not elect to run as a team?? I think they can elect to be on the same line? What is it Fred? THis stuff is interesting.

  2. The incumbents are running as a team. But that does not mean they are on the same line. People still have to vote for them as individuals, But they can be “bracketed,’ which means they will be together on the ballot … like in slots 1,2 and 3, or 7,8 and 9,.or however it comes out.

    yes, that is the word “bracket”. My point is that if you are running as a team,why wouldn’t you bracket? No team ever does that. THanks Fred
