Do The Signs Point To Who Will Win The Toms River Republican Mayoral Primary ??
As the song goes, “Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs”… Driving around Toms River these days will make you want to sing Signs for sure. Political signs, that is.
As the Republican Primary comes down the stretch, with the election in town this Tuesday, June 6th, there are seemingly endless signs promoting the large amount of candidates.
Whether you are on Hooper Avenue, Route 37, Old Freehold Road, Route 9, or just your neighbor’s lawn, the signs are everywhere. No less than 4 candidates running on the crowded Republican ticket for the right to represent the party in the November Mayoral Election.
First you have incumbent Mayor Maurice “Mo” Hill, representing the Regular Republican Organization Of Ocean County in column A. Then there is Geraldine “Geri” Ambrosio, representing the Toms River First Republicans in column B. Next is Robert A. Bianchini, who is running on the Responsibility and Accountability platform, in column C. Finally, you have Daniel Rodrick, of the Save Toms River platform in column D. Many choices, but only one will represent the splintered Republican Party in November against the winner of the Democratic Primary Tuesday. All signs point to that being John Furey, of the Regular Democratic Organization of Ocean County, column E. He appears to be running unopposed, save for write in candidates.

One thing is for certain. Starting Wednesday, someone is going to have to start picking up a lot of signs along the sides and centers of the highways and byways of Toms River. Furthermore, let’s hope these signs can not only make a difference for one lucky candidate, but also for the environment, and be recycled!
So who will win the crowded Toms River Republican Mayoral Primary on Tuesday, and the multi party General Election for Mayor later this year?
Well, let’s just hope that all signs point to the people of Toms River.
