Benson rules out run for Hamilton Mayor

By Nikita Biryukov, November 14 2018 5:04 pm

Assemblyman Dan Benson isn’t eyeing a mayor at Hamilton’s mayorship.

“No way,” Benson said when asked if he was considering such a run. “We have wonderful folks that are looking at it, and I’m looking forward to supporting the Democratic nominee and the eventual nominee.”

Both Benson and his running mate Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo both live in Hamilton.

The Republican mayor of Hamilton Township, Kelly Yaede, is up for re-election in 2019.

Unlike Benson, DeAngelo wouldn’t rule out a run for Hamilton’s mayoral seat when asked about it last month.

“I don’t rule out any run, from mayor to school board to president of the United States,” DeAngelo, a former Hamilton councilman, told the New Jersey Globe in October.

It doesn’t appear DeAngelo’s indicated any desire for a run at the seat to Benson.

“I can’t speak for my running mate, he also could be running for school board next year based on his statement, so I look forward to supporting Wayne in whatever role he’s running,” Benson said.
