Palisades Park Deputy Mayor Jason Kim won't take a run at the LD 37 incumbent Assembly people.
Kim had been mulling opposing Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-37) with the support of Palisades Park Democratic Party Municipal Chairman Mike Pollotta.
This week, in advance of tomorrow's party organization deadline for candidates, Pollotta made the rounds of municipal chairs informing them that Kim was done.

Pollotta simply didn't have the votes to beat her, a source told PolitickerNJ.com.
