New Hazlet candidate
William Kolibas was selected by the Hazlet Township Republican Committee to replace Committeeman Scott Broschart's name on the Republican line this year.
Broschart resigned his candidacy suddenly following heated questioning by Hazlet Democrats at the September 6 Township Committee meeting regarding campaign finance issues with the 2004 Republican Committee race, for which he was campaign manager. Broschart was absent from the September 20 meeting of the Township Committee.
Kolibas will be joining Ric Medrow as the Republican candidates in Hazlet this year. They are running against Hazlet Democratic candidates Jim DiNardo and Kevin Lavan.
