As some may recall, the male seat in Ward 2, District 6 was the subject of a controversy. Petitions were signed for Peter Price, but then petitions for Jerry Green were filed. Price said he was asked by local Democratic chairman Adrian Mapp to step aside in favor of Green.
Green, the District 22 Assemblyman and chairman of the Regular Democratic Organization of Union County, then withdrew for whatever reason, leaving no one on the ballot for the 2-6 committee seat.
I wrote a commentary on the 2-6 and today Peter Price alluded to it in announcing a write-in campaign for the committee seat:
"In regards to your article of April 18, Commentary on 2-6, I wanted to provide and answer to your question "What is the status of the original filer now?" Answer - I am running as a write-in candidate on June 6, and welcome the support of my neighbors and friends in the 2-6. I along with my surrogates will be visiting homes in the 2-6 with instructions on how to cast their vote for me. Folks should also check their sample ballot for instructions on how to make a personal choice. If they still have questions on Primary Day, June 6, they should ask assistance from the District Election Board Worker before entering the voting booth."
