Meanwhile, Councilman Daniel Rodrick will be challenging the GOP choice, former Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato, for the mayor’s spot on the ballot.
The Democrats are running attorney Jonathan Z. Petro for mayor, and the following for council: Michele Williams, Karin K. Sage, and Drew Boyle.
