MORRIS COUNTY — The Daily Record is reporting that John R. Sette is stepping down as of Saturday, December 31 after 15 years of serving as the outspoken chairman of Morris County’s Republican Committee.
Sette, 69, said he told the Morris County freeholders and other leaders on the GOP committee at a political caucus of his plan before Christmas, and that longtime GOP Committee Vice Chairman Patti Page of Chatham will complete his unexpired term that runs until mid-June 2018. State Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco, who serves as counsel to the GOP committee, said that Page has happily accepted the position and rules call for the vice-chairperson to fill the position until GOP county committee members elect a successor, according to the Daily Record.
In a November 30 post on County Clerk Ann Grossi’s Facebook page, she announced as her dual role as County Clerk and Secretary to the Board of Canvassers it was her pleasure to recognize and host a reception to honor Chairman John Sette as he retires from the Board of Elections after 22 years of dedicated service to the voters of Morris County.
Sette will continue serving as chairman of the county Sheriff’s CrimeStoppers program, as a board member of Daytop-NJ, a substance abuse facility in Mendham, and as a commissioner on the state’s Police Training Commission.
