UPDATE: I received MORE VOTES THAN ALL the Jerry Green-backed Union County candidates in the 2 Wards I represent (Wards 2 and 3).
Here are the vote totals in those wards:
Rebecca Williams: 3,743
Sheriff (Joe Cryan): 3,610
Surrogate (LaCorte): 3,613
Freeholder (Estrada): 3,552
Freeholder (Hudak): 3,592
Freeholder: (Wright): 3,611
Jerry Green's stupid election tricks backfired on him, and likely cost his county candidates votes--I am sure they are looking at the numbers. I hope the county powers-that-be are taking notice of how Jerry Green is (not) running the county Democratic party. It's time for him to GO!
In addition, the team I endorsed for school board--Rutherford, Jeffers, & Bellamy--all won DECISIVELY. Congratulations to you all!
And, finally, despite the dirty election tricks and lack of support he received from the Union County Democrats, Jerry Green, and the Freeholders (I received no support from them, either, at the behest of Jerry Green), Derek Armstead WON the Linden election and will be the next mayor of Linden, also making history as the first African American mayor of that city. Congratulations to Derek on a hard-fought and hard-won race.
Time for bed!
