Old Bridge Township Council Candidate Leaves Republican Party to Run as Democrat

Old Bridge – Ken Totten, a candidate for the Ward 6 seat on the Old Bridge Township Council, left the Republican Party this year so he could run as a Democrat.

Ken Totten is running for Old Bridge Township Council as a Democrat. Unlike the other members of his slate, however, the Ward 6 candidate was a Republican until earlier this year.

Totten, who is President/CEO of United Roosevelt Savings Bank and a Fire Commissioner for Old Bridge Fire District #3, says he decided to switch because he believes the Democrats have a better plan to address the challenges facing Old Bridge residents.

“The Old Bridge Democrats are really about the people,” Totten said, “They know what matters: getting taxes under control, investing in recreation programs for our kids, and protecting our beautiful open spaces from short-sighted development projects. I switched because I want to be associated with a party I knew would listen to the citizens of Old Bridge and work hard to address their concerns.”

The Democratic Party has been happy to embrace Totten. Mark Razzoli, chairman of the Old Bridge Democratic Organization said, “The Democratic Party is open to everyone.  Ken is a great candidate who has lived in Old Bridge his entire life, has volunteered his time to keep our community safe, and has coached many of our kids when they played youth sports. That commitment to Old Bridge is much more important to us than any past party affiliation.”
