Terhune unlikely to run for County Execuive

Jack Terhune, a former Bergen County sheriff and state corrections commissioner, acknowledged that he has been approached about running for county executive, but downplayed the possibility.

“Several people have approached me, but that’s not in the cards.  At least not on New Year’s Eve,” said Terhune, who is currently the borough administrator of Leonia – a heavily Democratic town.  Terhune would not rule a run out entirely, however.

Bergen County Clerk Kathleen Donovan is expected to announce her candidacy for the post in early January.  She has already filed a certificate of organization with the Election Law Enforcement Commission, designating Republican State Commiteewoman Eleonore Nissley as her campaign chair and Fair Lawn Councilman Edward Trawinski as her treasurer.
