A current Cape May County Freeholder is seeking another office. Susan Sheppard has submitted a letter to run for surrogate of the county. Sheppard cited family reasons as the main reason, saying it would allow her the chance to spend more time with her children. She will maintain her seat as freeholder in the meantime, and would only have to give it up if she wins the election in November. Three other candidates have submitted letters in the Republican Party and they will be voted on during the county convention in March.
