Chairman Holman not to seek re-election as Chairman


January 14, 2022

Ocean County Republican County Committee Members

As we begin 2022, our Ocean County Republican Organization has a lot to be proud of.

In 2020, we delivered a 100,000-vote victory for President Trump! Our County Commissioners won by the same margin, a testament to their record and our hard work!

In 2021, with Jack on top of the ticket we delivered the largest Republican victory in the state with a historic vote count of 145,756 for Jack Ciattarelli, even more than the 125,781 votes we delivered for Governor Christie in 2013.

In the last three years, we won 92 out of 94 races across Ocean County - and we will be winning those other two real soon! Our incumbent commissioners have all been re-elected by growing margins and we have a stronger bench of local leaders than ever before.

When I ran for Chairman, I promised that the greatest republican county party in the state would continue to win. We’ve done that. I also promised that we would grow our ranks and focus on greater inclusion. I am proud to say, we’ve done that too. We’ve seen more women take on real leadership roles and excel - with Beth McGuckin as Supervisor at our Board of Elections, Pat Lane as the Executive Director of our party, and the great Bobbi Jo Crea elected as the third female Ocean County Commissioner in history! To name only a few.

At the same time, we’ve strengthened our party organization with a rejuvenated Finance Committee, a newly formed Bylaws Committee, a new headquarters that is open to all at half the cost to the party, an updated website, a new database for rapid communication, and much, much more.

We are, by far, the strongest Republican county party in the state.

I am very proud of all that we have accomplished together. We need to work together to continue to make our party even stronger.

Election of your next County Chairman will take place after the Primary in June. After careful thought and consideration, I have decided not to seek re-election as Chairman.

I believe our party will grow stronger under new leadership and I am honored to support someone we all know and admire, Sheriff Michael Mastronardy, as Ocean County's next Republican Chairman.

Sheriff Mastronardy is a proven leader, a strong administrator, a uniter, a man of tremendous integrity, a great ambassador to our religious communities, and a dedicated public servant. All of which has made him a pretty popular guy. I am confident that with your help, he will lead our party to even greater success.

I ask that you join me in supporting Sheriff Michael Mastronardy and our party as we work for an even stronger future.

I want to thank you for all of your volunteer efforts. Together we will nominate winners in 2022.

Be assured that I and Pat Lane, will spend the next few months preparing for a successful primary election and a smooth transition for the next Chairman.

Thank you,

Chairman Frank B. Holman, III
