Jackson Resident Running for Ocean County Sheriff

JACKSON-Gene Davis, of Jackson, is on the ballot to challenge Ocean County Sheriff Michael Mastronardy in November.   Davis, originally of Linden had run unsuccessfully for the position of State Assemblyman of District 12 in 2017.

In that election, he lost by more than 8,000 votes.   Initially, Davis sought to run again for assembly but did not get his party’s nomination.

Jackson Township has been relatively underserved at the county level in recent decades, but this month, Republicans elected township native Frank B. Holman, III as the party chairman.  If successful, Davis could be the second Jackson resident to hold higher office at the county level.
