Out are two Republican incumbents and in come a Democrat and an independent after Little Silver voters dealt their harshest rebuke to the GOP in a decade Tuesday.


Of 6,445 votes cast, the largest share, 1,681, went to attorney Daniel O’Hern Jr., for 26.08 percent of the total. He was followed by hardware store owner Dan Levine, who captured 1,540 votes, or 23.89 percent, according to the Monnouth County Clerk’s website.

Those tallies left GOP incumbents Rick DeNoia Jr., who is the council president, and William Morris Jr. without seats when the governing body is reorganized in January. DeNoia racked up 1,390 votes, or 21.57 percent, and Morris, 1,223 votes, or 18.98 percent, according to the clerk’s data.

Building contractor Anthony Trufolo Jr. drew 606 votes.
