Passaic Dems heading to court

New Jersey Globe story prompts lawsuit

By David Wildstein, September 13 2018 12:26 am

Citing a New Jersey Globe story, Passaic County Democrats have filed a lawsuit challenging the presence of three blank spaces on the general election ballot that could affect their bid to win their race for County Clerk.

Judge Ernest Caposela is expected to hear arguments in the case later this week.

The issue is the presence of a virtual dead zone on the ballot between Congress and County Clerk throughout much of Passaic County, a result of special elections for State Senate and two Assembly seats in the Bergen County-based 38h district.  The district includes one Passaic County municipality, Hawthorne.

John Currie the longtime Passaic County Democratic Chairman, is making the county clerk race a top priority.  

The new Republican County Chairman, Peter Murphy, is pushing to hold on to the County Clerk post that Kristin Corrado won in 2008.  Corrado gave up the post following her election to the State Senate last year, and the GOP is running Ronald Fava, a former Assemblyman, Passaic County Prosecutor and acting Sheriff.  

Democrats are running Danielle Ireland Imhof, the Prospect Park business administrator.
