CHESTERFIELD, NJ -
The Township of Chesterfield has scheduled the Township Committee Close-out Meeting for Wednesday, December 28th at 4pm, but it’s still uncertain who will be on the next Chesterfield Township Committee.
What we do know is that a special election for Chesterfield Township has not yet been scheduled.
As Burlington County Clerk Timothy Tyler told Fox 29's Hank Flynn earlier this month, it would have been around December 16th that scheduling a special election could start. That means a date has to be worked out with the Chesterfield Fire House, many local and county employees would work, and use of voting machines has to be secured.
There remains a tie between Township Committee candidates Rita Romeu and Ron Kolczynski at 1,289 votes, even after a recount took place earlier this month. The next step is to hold a special election here in the township to determine the winner, but a call to the Burlington County Clerk’s office today shows Chesterfield Township has yet to ask for one. We’ll let you know the date of the special election as soon as we have it.
