Chatham Resident Announces Run for 2017 Morris County Freeholder Seat

Chatham Borough resident Rozella Clyde announced on Wednesday that she will be running in the Democrat primary for Morris County Freeholder Credits: TAP Chatham

MORRISTOWN, NJ - There is no "Wait till next year" as far as Rozella Clyde is concerned.

Just 36 days after her bid to win a Morris County Freeholder seat came up short, the Chatham Borough resident announced Wednesday night that she will be running in the Democrat primary for Morris County Freeholder in 2017.

Standing near a Morris County map on Washington Street, Clyde said she was about to embark on a 39-municipality campaign, which she says will give a voice to the "invisible" residents of Morris County.

"Too many people in Morris County are invisible, particularly wage earners," Clyde said. "They're invisible and they have not been heard. I am here to be the voice of the people who are not represented in Morris County."

In the Nov. 8, 2016 election, Clyde received 83,834 votes, more than both of her Democrat running mates, Michael Horn and John Von Achen. Clyde figures she'll need to add 40,000 votes to her total in order to challenge her Republican opponent, which would likely be incumbent William "Hank" Lyon.
