MIDDLESEX COUNTY – Tuesday’s election brought the terms of two incumbent mayors to a close.

In Middlesex Borough, former Democratic Mayor Ronald S. Dobies defeated current Republican Mayor Robert M. Sherr in a three-way race that also included independent Councilwoman Debra De Vuyst. In Old Bridge, Republican Owen Henry defeated Democrat Patrick Gillespie, who has been serving since former Mayor James Phillips resigned in April because of health issues. Middlesex County’s other local races generally favored incumbents.
