Last night at a special meeting of mayor and council Sherry Dinnen of Leigh Street was sworn as the newest Clinton Councilwoman replacing outgoing councilman Dan Shea who called it quits on St Pattys day.
The Council heard from Sherry,
Frank P. Gallagher of Center Street and
Daniel Melillo of Union Road before making their decision.
Dineen had already registered for the June Primary to run for this seat which goes through the end of the year.
COMMON COUNCIL- 3 YR. TERM – VOTE FOR TWO
Beth Sosidka 1 Haver Farm Rd. Clinton, NJ 08809
Sherry Dineen 54 Leigh St. Clinton, NJ 08809
And as a result of their being no Democrats filed she would have won the seat in November unchallenged so it was a wise move by council to get her feet wet before she takes her three year term.
