HOLMDEL, NJ - 'It gets curiouser and curiouser' said Alice in the famed Alice in Wonderland.
If the unofficial numbers are certified, Chiung-Yin Cheng Liu is back on track to be the first Asian American woman in the history of Holmdel to serve on the Holmdel Township Committee.
The unofficial vote totals now stand at Weber 2164, Liu 2082, Santhana 2079 and Hinds at 2063.
So, based on the latest information Santhana may be out and ironically, may lose the election the same way Mike Nikolis lost his election during the primary. If past is prologue, voters may assume a recount in the never ending election campaign of 2019.
If there is no recount and the vote stands, the 2020 Holmdel Township Committee will include: Cathy Weber, Chiung-Yin Cheng Liu, Rocco Pascucci, Tom Critelli and Greg Buontempo. The five will choose a Mayor and Deputy Mayor for the year.
Reorganization is during the first week of January.
