Myers Running for Morris County Commission Seat

Christine Myers says she left a few things undone when she departed the then-Morris County freeholder board to take a federal job in 2018.

Now she wants to go back and essentially pick up where she left off.

Myers plans to run again this year for a seat on what is now the county board of commissioners.

As a freeholder from 2016 through 2018, Myers was keenly interested in business and economic development – work she wants to continue if elected. Myers said today that she also thinks it’s important
for the county to retain qualified staff.

Myers is the fifth candidate so far and the second to announce a challenge to an already-formed three person slate of incumbents Doug Cabana, Tom Mastrangelo and newcomer Melissa Florance Lynch. The other challenger is Sarah Neibart, who like Myers, is from Mendham Township.

Myers left the board after one term when she was named the Regional Advocate for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy for Region Two. With the change in administration last year, she no longer holds that position.

One change in the local political landscape is that Morris Republicans now have a “county line,” which wasn’t the case when she ran in 2015. Myers said she thinks the change could end up helping her. In any event, she said she plans to run on her own and not as part of a slate.
