Love won't seek re-election
Assemblywoman Sandra Love will not seek re-election in 2009.

Assemblywoman Sandra Love (D-Gloucester Township) said today that she will not seek re-election to a second term in the Legislature, saying a recent health issue has promoted her retirement.

Love, 63, served as Mayor of Gloucester Township from 1994 to 2006.  She won an Assembly seat in 2007 – on her second try – after Democrat David Mayer opted not to run again.  Mayer is now a candidate for Mayor.

"I am very grateful for the opportunity the voters gave me to represent them in Trenton," Love said. "It has been a wonderful and challenging experience, and there is still a great deal I want to accomplish in the year remaining on my term. However, I feel it's time to give someone else the chance to work on the very important issues our state faces in the years ahead."
