Primary Elections Are Virtually Uncontested in Cape May County

Voters in Cape May County will have to wait for the general elections on November 3 if they are looking for any kind of contest for those seeking elective office. Only in Lower Township, where four Republicans are vying for two seats, is there any kind of race in the primaries that will be held June 2. Everyone else is running unopposed.

Is it because all the voters in the county are happy with those who hold leadership positions or are they too lazy or uninvolved to try to make a change?  I don't know the answer, but it would be interesting to hear some opinions on the subject.

When you consider that Cape May and other nearby counties have been depressed economically for a number of years, with little new industry or jobs available for those who would like to remain here, you have to wonder what those leaders who get re-elected year after year have done to deserve their positions of "leadership."
