Rocky Hill Mayor Race Was Too Close to Call: Uhrik Wins by 44 Votes

Democrat Robert “Bob” Uhrik led Independent candidate Thomas Bremner by just 16 votes the day after the election. At that time, the Somerset County clerk still had 79 absentee and six provisional votes to count, so it was too soon to declare a winner, according to Rocky Hill Councilman and Mayor Elect Uhrik. Above: Rocky Hill Borough mayor elect Bob Uhrik with his wife Eileen. Photo by Frank Veronsky. Uhrik became the clear winner — his lead increasing to 44 votes — once the county clerk’s office got caught up. With more than 20,000 Somerset County absentee ballots to count, the clerk’s office had to get a judge’s order to take extra time to count them all. Nevertheless, Uhrik said it was “g

Race for Rocky Hill Mayor, Too Close to Call

Democrat candidate, Robert "Bob" Uhrik is ahead of Independent candidate Thomas Bremner by 16 votes as of Wednesday morning. The Somerset County clerk still has 79 absentee and six provisional votes to count, so it is too soon to declare a winner, according to Rocky Hill Councilman and candidate Uhrik. "It was good there was a contest," Uhrik said. In a small borough such as Rocky Hill, which only has about 600 residents, it is sometimes difficult to field enough candidates for the five-member town council plus one mayor. As it turns out, Uhrik and Bremner, who is president of the Rocky Hill First Aid Squad, attend the same church! Both candidates are members at Trinity Episcopal Church of R

Nights at Montgomery Evangelical Free Church

As I write this, our church gym is filled to overflowing with people from the Montgomery area to celebrate “Night In India.” We were blessed to partner with local Indian groups to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. Throughout the night, we learned about the history, languages, and culture of India through a presentation, live music, and dances. Of course, the night was capped off with delicious Indian food and the opportunity to explore Indian culture through games and Henna art. It was an honor to be part of something bigger than myself, and it would not have been possible without such an incredible team. Last year at this time, I’ll admit I wasn’t entirely familiar w
