MAJOR BREAKING NEWS
 
FIRST REPORTED HERE
 
LEARNED & CONFIRMED
 
ATLANTIC COUNTY BOARD
OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS
CHAIRMAN
JOE SILIPENA
WILL NOT BE RUNNING
FOR RE-ELECTION
JOE SILIPENA
 
After 12 years on the Freeholder Board and eight years before that as Mayor of Egg Harbor City, Joe Silipena will retire from elective politics and will not seek re-election this year.
 
As Chairman of the Freeholder Board, Silipena led with dignity and displayed professionalism and respect towards all. He set the tone which led to as much civility as is possible in this intense political era that exists today. 
 
Silipena will be missed. He is a gentleman in what has become an increasingly nasty political arena. 
 
This opens up a Freeholder at Large seat in the upcoming election season. Silipena is one of only  few Atlantic County Republicans to be able to win District wide over the past 3 years.
 
Silipena will visit on-air tomorrow (Friday, February 1, 2008) on "Hurley in the Morning" WIBG 1020 Radio. This will be Silipena's first interview/appearance on this topic. The interview will begin sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.
