Mr. Delaney, a lifelong Ocean County resident will meet with the Ocean County Republican Party Screening committee on February 10 in attempt to gain their support.
Mr. Delaney feels “its time for a change in Ocean County” and that he is the person to get that change started.
Mr. Delaney tells TLS he is a former Ocean County Police Officer and says he has extensive experience in dealing with the front lines of policing in today’s climate. He believes that his experience “will help set the tone of policing in Ocean County for the current times as well as the needs of the future.”
If elected Mr. Delaney would “also cut back on the excessive payroll in the Sheriffs Department. As it currently stands, taxpayers are paying out more than $750,000 a year for the Sheriff and two Undersheriffs who are collecting a 6-figure pension as well as a 6 figure salary.”
Mr. Delaney says he looks forward to “working with the Board of Commissioners and the residents of Ocean County on continuing to make Ocean County not only a great, but a safe place to live.”
