Local candidates in three New Jersey towns sail to unopposed victories
Local election candidates in three New Jersey cities were re-elected without opposition on Tuesday.
In Sea Isle City, Council members JB Feeley, John Gibson and Mary Tighe were re-elected. They will each serve another four-year term. It will be the second for Feeley, who was first elected in 2017.
Gibson served six terms in the Assembly before losing re-election in 2005. He joined Sea Isle City Council in 2013. Tighe has served on the council since Sea Isle ceased to adopt the governing body in 2007.
The elections in Sea Isle tend to be a bit sleepy. Tuesday’s winners were also unopposed in 2017, and Mayor Leonard Desiderio and his roommates also faced no opposition in 2019.
In Avalon, newcomers Maura Coskey and James McDermott Jr. will join Councilor John McCorristin on the Borough Board of Directors. The term will be McCorristin’s second.
Incumbents James Deever and Nancy Hudanich, the board chair, did not seek re-election.
In Audubon, Commissioners Robert Lee and Jeffrey Whitman were re-elected without opposition. They are joined by Robert Jakubowski, an employee of the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services, who will serve as Mayor John Ward on the three-member borough commission.
