HAZLET…Or maybe Holmdel-Monmouth County Republicans screwed up their most recent mailer to promote their Holmdel town committee candidates confusing the towns of Holmdel and Hazlet with each other. It’s an honest mistake, to people not from the area, as their campaign strategist in charge of postcards…they both look kinda the same to the rest of us.
Hazlet is a small town in Monmouth County that borders Holmdel which lies to the south.
In the mailer sent out by the Monmouth County GOP supporting…HOLMDEL committee candidates Eric Hinds and Chung-Yin Liu, the mailer identifies the candidates are running for office in Hazlet.
“Chiung-Yin Cheng Liu has a long record of serving her community,” the mailer boasts. “Now she’s trying to make history as the first Asian-American to serve on the township committee.”
Well, maybe if Liu was running for office in Hazlet, but not so true for her actual hometown of Holmdel.
In Holmdel, David Chai, a resident of Chinese descent with a 30-year career with Bell Labs served on the Holmdel town council in the 1990s and became mayor of Holmdel in 1999.
Their opponents, Cathy Weber and Prakash Santhana who are also running for council noticed the incorrect mailers when they were sent to their homes this week.
