How close is next week’s mayoral election in Red Bank looking?
Well, there are no polls that we know of. So redbankgreen devised its own measure.
We call it the Electometer, a count of yard signs touting the candidates: Council President Pasquale Menna, a Democrat; his opponent, Republican Councilman John Curley; and their respective slates.
It’s far from scientific, we know. You can discount or dismiss the results for numerous reasons. But it’s all we’ve got.
So, how’s the race shaping up as we enter the final week? Well, it’s close. Extremely close. But according to the Electometer, if voters from Mechanic Street turn out and pull levers the way they’ve declared themselves in their front yards, the slate that’ll be popping champagne corks next Tuesday night is the one headed by…
… the bald bachelor.
No, not that one. The other one.
