Randolph Township Mayor Tom MacArthur told PolitickerNJ he’s actively pursuing a run to fill the federal seat slated to be vacated by U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3).

The mayor worked in the insurance industry for 30 years and as the chairman and CEO of York Risk Services Group Inc. for 11 years, according to the township’s website.

MacArthur said he’s speaking with Republican Party leadership in Ocean and Burlington counties.
