Democrat Kenneth Tahan, who lost a bid for Wayne Township Council on Tuesday, died today after an illness.  He was 66.

“Ken was a wonderful candidate and a wonderful man.  He will be missed by many and we appreciate all he did to raise awareness in his community in his final months,” said Wayne Democratic Club president Cathy Kazan.  “He was so passionate about Wayne and making it a better place.”

Tahan was a social worker for the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services before becoming a salesman for a software company.

He won 39% of the vote against Republican Joseph Scuralli.

Tahan is survived by his wife, Sharon, and his children.
