Point Boro GOP Candidate, Two Others Picked as Possible Remig Replacement
Council will pick one among Bill Borowsky, Joe Furmato and Pam Snyder
A Republican Point Borough Council candidate and two other Republicans have been nominated as possible replacements for Mitch Remig.
Council Candidate Bill Borowksy, Joe Furmato, and Pam Snyder are the three nominees the full Borough Council will choose from to fill Remig's unexpired term.
On Monday, the Point Pleasant Republican County Committee convened to pick three names for council consideration.
The county committee consists of one male and one female representative from each of the Borough’s 16 voting districts.
Virginia Brennan of District 3 nominated Borowsky and it was seconded by Terri Mount, committeewoman from District 8.
Toni DePaola, Borough Council President and District 13 Committeewoman, touted Borowsky’s qualifications, saying, “Bill has the business acumen and skills to fill Mitch’s position and serve the citizens of Point Pleasant with an unwavering commitment to fiscal responsibility.”
DPaola is running for reelection in November.
Susan Rogers, Vice Municipal Chairwoman and former Borough Council President, nominated her 2007 running mate William Dikun, citing his qualifications as a previous councilman. That nomination was seconded by Brian McAlindin, District 9 Committeeman and former councilman.
An active community member for many years, GOP Club member Furmato was nominated by District 4 Committeeman Steven Blank and seconded by McAlindin.
Snyder, 2010-2011 GOP Club Secretary and attorney, was nominated by Committeeman Nick Scarpello of District 12.
Judy Block, District 12 Committeewoman, praised Snyder’s expertise as a lawyer knowledgeable in municipal law, government operations, and business finance.
The Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Borough Hall, at which time they will vote on one of the three names submitted by the county committee and swear in Remig’s replacement.
