HOLMDEL – Republicans Gregory Buontempo and Domenico Luccarelli have been elected to three-year terms on the Holmdel Township Committee.
Four residents sought the terms in the Nov. 3 municipal election. Buontempo and Luccarelli fended off a challenge from Democrats Joseph Romano and Michael Jenkins.
According to election results posted online by the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office, Buontempo received 6,562 votes and Luccarelli received 6,507 votes to win the seats.
Romano received 3,996 votes and Jenkins received 3,749 votes in their first bids to serve on the Township Committee.
Buontempo won his fourth term on the Township Committee. He is serving as Holmdel’s mayor in 2020.
“I appreciate the overwhelming support and confidence the residents of Holmdel have placed in me. It has been a humbling privilege to serve as mayor this year as our community came together through the coronavirus pandemic.
“With my re-election, I look forward to working together in hopefully better times over the next three years.
“One of my top priorities will continue to be managing and leading Holmdel through the pandemic. I will continue to communicate frequently to our residents with important information and about resources that are available to assist them during these challenging times,” Buontempo said.
Luccarelli is a current member of the Zoning Board of Adjustment. His term on that board will end on Dec. 31 and he will join the Township Committee in January.
