MILLBURN, NJ - Yesterday, voters in Millburn/Short Hills went to the polls to pick their candidates for the November ballot. Voters selected candidates for a variety of municipal, county and state positions. The results of the vote are as follows:
In the municipal race, voters were asked to vote for two candidates to run for township committee in November. In the Democratic primary, sitting mayor Diane Thall-Eglow and Richard Wasserman both ran unopposed, winning the right to the two spots on the ballot for their party.
