On the heels of being replaced as Ocean County GOP chief by George Gilmore, Ocean County Board of Elections Commissioner Frank Holman announced that he is resigning and moving out-of-state to sunny Florida.
The successor to Holman as elections chief isn’t yet known, but it could be George Gilmore: the reinstated GOP chairman served as chairman of the Elections Board previously, from 1995 until 2019. He resigned both as elections chief and county GOP chief after being convicted on federal tax charges, for which he was later pardoned by President Trump.
Under state law, a nominee for a vacant seat on the election board (there are 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats on the Board) is chosen by the county party chairs and then sent to the governor for his approval.
The other members of the Elections Board are Democrats Wyatt Earp and Matthew Sage and Republican Justin Flancbaum, a Jackson resident.
