Jeff Kasko announced Tuesday he will run for re-election to the Board of Commissioners.
He was elected in 2009 to his first term on the three-member board.
"After thinking it over and talking with family, friends, and supporters, the decision to ask the voters for a second term was made in the past week," he said in a statement. “Every day, I am so thankful for the privilege of living in this town and raising five boys here with my wife, Teri. For me, it is a tremendous honor to serve as commissioner and be able to interact with residents, make decisions, and help guide Haddonfield into the future. I hope the voters will allow me to continue in this role for another term.”
All three seats on the borough Board of Commissioners are up for election. Commissioner Letitia "Tish" Colombi, who has been mayor for the past 12 years, announced last month that she will not seek another four-year term after 28 years as a commissioner. Ed Borden, a commissioner since 2003, has not announced if he will seek re-election.
Kasko is the second person to throw his hat into the ring after Neal Rochford also announced an election bid.
Candidates face a March 15 filing deadline for the May 14 election. Haddonfield has a nonpartisan form of government in which party affiliation of candidates is not printed on the ballot.
