But Palombo expected to retain mayor’s seat

Control of Upper Township Committee will shift away from the regular Republican party in January as independent Republicans John Coggins and Hobie Young are sworn into office.

Coggins and Young defeated regular Republicans Curtis Corson and Jay Newman in November. They will join the five-member board when the committee reorganizes at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 3.
