BERNARDS TWP., NJ - Republican Carol Bianchi, who has served on the committee since 2013 and who was appointed as township mayor for 2016, is the only candidate to file to be included on this June's primary election ballot for a seat on the Bernards Township Committee.

Bianchi was the only candidate from either party to seek election to the one three-year position up for election this November on the Township Committee, said Bernards Municipal Clerk Denise Szabo. 

Monday at 4 p.m. was the deadline to file to be named on the June 7 primary election ballot in New Jersey.

No Democrats filed for the Township Committee position, Szabo said. At this point, a winning write-in candidate also could be listed on the general election ballot in November, she said in response to a question.

Bianchi was chosen by the all-Republican Township Committee at the start of this year to serve a one-year appointment as mayor, as is standard under the township's form of government.

She was appointed in August 2013 to fulfill the last four months of the Township Committee vacancy created when former Township Committeeman Scott Spitzer moved out of town before his term had ended. Bianchi was elected to a full three-year term that began in January 2016, Szabo said.

She formerly was chair of the township Planning Board, a position she was required to give up when she was appointed to fill the vacant spot on the Township Committee.
