Report: Palisades Park Official Eyes Englewood Assemblywoman's Seat
District 37 incumbents running together, report says.
Palisades Park Deputy Mayor Jason Kim is seeking to unseat Englewood Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, politickernj.com reports.
Faced with Kim's challenge, District 37 incumbents Senator Loretta Weinberg, Assemblyman Gordon Johnson and Vainieri Huttle announced they would run together, the report said.
"From fighting to create jobs and increase the minimum wage to protecting health care for women and children to making our schools and neighborhoods safer Loretta, Gordon and Valerie have built a record of advocacy and accomplishment across Bergen County’s 37th District," spokesman Dave Parano told the website.
Teaneck community activist and former Marine Jason Castle, who challenged Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen in the democratic congressional primary, will serve as a campaign chair for the legislators, the report said. Englewood Councilman Michael Cohen will also act as a campaign chair.
