Democrat, Republican candidate for one-year unexpired term on Old Bridge Township Council will run unopposed in primary election


OLD BRIDGE – Two candidates are on the ballot for the Ward 2 one-year unexpired term on the Old Bridge Township Council for the primary election on July 7.

Newcomer Zeeshan Siddiqi is running unopposed in the Old Bridge Democratic primary and DePalma is running unopposed in the Old Bridge GOP primary.

Councilwoman Mary Sohor, a Republican, vacated her Ward 2 seat, which expires on Dec. 31, 2021, after she was sworn in for the council-at-large seat in November 2019. The Old Bridge Republican GOP offered three names and the council selected Erik DePalma in January to fill her unexpired seat until the November election.
