MADISON — Madison Councilwoman Rachel Ehrlich has endorsed Charlie Baranski, a young progressive activist who is mounting an off-the-line bod for the Democratic nomination for Morris County Freeholder in the July 7 primary.
Baranski will prioritize climate action, fight for direct relief to residents and small businesses for COVID-19 recovery, and budget more for our county educational system, including the Morris County School of Technology, the County College of Morris, and our HeadStart programs,” Ehrlich said.
Baranski is facing the Democratic organization’s choice, Cary Amaro.
The winner will take on incumbent Tayfun Selen, who won a special election convention in January to fill the seat vacated when Heather Darling resigned to become Morris County Surrogate.
Democrats have not won a countywide election in Morris County since 1973 when Douglas Romaine won a seat on the freeholder board.
