LD 34 State Senate candidate Mark Alexander still wants the party line, but there is no indication the Essex County Democratic Committee will give it to him.

So while the Essex County power establishment crammed Joe DiVincenzo’s state of the county in Cedar Grove last night and state Sen. Nia Gill (D-34) waved to the crowd from the VIP section, Alexander turned up at a fundraiser for East Orange Mayor Bob Bowser – complete with speaking role.

Bowser is running for re-election again – off the line – against a ticket headed by Lester Taylor, who has the support of DiVincenzo acolyte and head of the local Democratic Party organization Leroy Jones.
