Earlier this month, redbankgreen emailed questionnaires to local candidates for public office in towns with contested elections on November 2. Beginning today, we’re running their replies, starting with those from Middletown, where four candidates are vying for two seats on the five-member Township Committee. The committee members, not voters, select the town’s mayor.

Here’s the Middletown ballot: middletown-ballot-2010

The replies are arranged below in alphabetical order. Next week, we’ll have the replies from candidates in Sea Bright, Rumson and Red Bank.
