Brauckmann is the current mayor while McCarthy is a political newcomer.
In the uncontested township committee race, current Mayor Don Brauckmann retained his seat and newcomer John McCarthy will be a new face on the dais. Current Committeeman John Rooney did not seek another term. According to unofficial election results, Brauckmann nabbed 4,951 votes while McCarthy received 4,947. The winners did not return calls for comment by presstime. Cinnaminson Township is a committee-based government, which means residents vote for five committee members and those members appoint a mayor each year. McCarthy and Brauckmann ran unopposed in the election—an odd happening for a presidential year. Last year, Committeemen Ben Young and Anthony Minniti ran against three Independent candidates. No Democrats ran last year …

Republican candidates could run unopposed this November.
The deadline for those to file as independents in this year's municipal race has passed and according to the Burlington County Clerk's office, no one in Cinnaminson threw their hats in the ring. Last year, three independent candidates—Ken Gertie, Steve Fowles and Scott Lunn—ran against Republican incumbents Anthony Minniti and Ben Young. The incumbents retained their seats. Republican newcomer John McCarthy and current mayor Don Brauckmann are the two GOP candidates running for the two open seats on Cinnaminson Township Committee and unless primary results show a certain number of write-in votes for other candidates, they will run unopposed. After Tuesday's primary, the two chairs of the Cinnaminson Democrats—Jim Bernard and Bill O'Connor—…
