Democrat Ed Potosnak of North Plainfield ended his 2012 bid for the United States House of Representatives on Monday to lead the non-partisan, non-profit, New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (NJLCV) as the organization's Executive Director.

“I am honored to join the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters as Executive Director,” said Potosnak.  “This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I look forward to building on the grass-roots energy of the diverse membership of NJLCV to promote non-partisan solutions to our environmental challenges."

A former science teacher, Potosnak challenged U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7) in 2010 and lost.

He was poised to run again - until this.

“I am very grateful for the outpouring of support I received to bring my real world experience as a chemistry teacher and small bushiness owner to Congress,”  Potosnak said. “I will be working every day to ensure our children and future generations have clean water and air, as well as open space,” Potosnak concluded.

Potosnak will begin as executive director of the NJ LVC on Jan. 17.
