A former Brick councilwoman who also served as the township’s municipal prosecutor is running for a seat in the New Jersey General Assembly.
Kimberley Casten is running unopposed to represent the Democratic party in November’s election. Her running mate is Valter Must, of Toms River. Both Casten and Must are attorneys.
Casten and Must will run against Republican incumbents Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin.
Casten served as council president in 2003, and then municipal prosecutor after her term ended. She served as prosecutor until 2007, when she was removed by then Township Clerk Virginia Lampman, who served as acting mayor after the resignation of Joseph C. Scarpelli.
Both Casten and Must have served as municipal prosecutors in numerous local communities.
