Architect and long-time Chatham Borough resident Frank Truilo will be seeking to join Council member Len Resto on the Democratic ticket for Borough Council, according to the Borough’s Democratic Committee Chair Patricia Soteropoulos.

Because the deadline for appearing on the ballot has passed, Democratic primary voters are asked to write in Truilo’s name on their primary ballots, which are expected to arrive this week.

“Frank Truilo will make an exceptional candidate and a fantastic Borough Council member,” Soteropoulos said.
