The brother of U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone has announced his candidacy for the Long Branch City Council. John Pallone, who served as a Councilman from 1990 to 1994, said today that he would run with David Brown, the former Roselle Business Administrator and now the Plainfield Public Works Director.
Frank Pallone began his political career as a Long Branch City Councilman in 1982 and then scored a surprise victory when he ousted Republican State Sen. Brian Kennedy in 1983. Pallone held the seat against Gerri Popkin in 1987, and then beat Joseph Azzolina in a 1988 congressional race after twelve-term incumbent James Howard died. John Pallone gave up his council seat to challenge Mayor Adam Schneider in 1994.
Former Paterson Mayor, Lawrence "Pat" Kramer, today endorsed Jose "Joey" Torres for mayor of Paterson in the May 13th nonpartisan election.Read More >

During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.- PolitickerNJ.com
