(Edison) – Following a vote today by members of the Middlesex County Democratic County Committee, the Middlesex County Democratic Organization has decided to award its county line to Phil Murphy for Governor.
“After a clear and transparent process where every gubernatorial candidate was invited to address our county committee, the Middlesex County Democratic Organization today strongly and enthusiastically endorsed Phil Murphy for governor,” said Chairman Kevin McCabe. “As New Jersey continues to reel from repeated assaults on our progressive values by the Trump and Christie Administrations, I am confident that Ambassador Murphy will move our state back towards improving the quality of life for every single family. We will do everything possible to ensure that he receives a strong plurality in our county in the June primary and that we help elect him as our next governor next November.”
EDISON – Last night, the Middlesex County Democratic Organization convened at the annual County Democratic Convention to endorse candidates in County Surrogate, County Freeholder and State legislative races to be held this coming November.
“Middlesex County is incredibly fortunate to have so many talented, dedicated individuals willing to answer the call to public service,” said MCDO Chairman Kevin McCabe. “The County Committee has endorsed a strong slate of candidates who represent the best of what our county has to offer, and who will lead our county and our State well as we move into the future. I’m proud of the group of candidates that our county organization has endorsed, and I look forward to a strong showing this November, and beyond.”
At last night’s meeting of the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Deputy Director Carol Bellante announced that she would be resigning after 8 years of dedicated service.
Freeholder Bellante has been an outstanding leader in the County for 40 years. She devoted her time to advocating for the improved provision of services for senior citizens, and for the expansion and development of recreational facilities in Middlesex County. She played an instrumental role in the Open Space Preservation Programs in which the County's efforts to complete and expand the Middlesex County Greenway were successful. On a personal note, she has dedicated her entire career to bettering the lives of working families through the labor movement.
The Middlesex County Democratic Organization recognizes Freeholder Bellante's unconditional dedication and hard work as Freeholder Deputy Director and wishes her the best.

Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios spoke at an event yesterday to discusses the environmental concerns posed by the use of microbeads in personal care products during a press conference held Tuesday at Middlesex County’s Spring Lake Park in South Plainfield. He was joined by U.S. Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr.; Freeholder Deputy Director Carol Barrett Bellante; State Assemblyman Patrick J. Diegnan Jr.; State Assemblywoman Nancy J. Pinkin ; Jim Walsh of Food & Water Watch, and Sandra Meola of NY/NJ Baykeeper. The event was held by Congressman Pallone and Assemblyman Diegnan to highlight the harmful effects of plastic microbeads on fish and regional waterways, and the lawmakers’ efforts at the federal and state levels in response to these issues. The synthetic products are commonly found in products such as face wash, soap and toothpaste. The small bits of plastic can slip through water treatment systems and often end up in local streams, rivers and larger bodies of water.
