Camden County Democrats have picked Cory Booker’s South Jersey state director as their candidate for State Assembly in the 5th district.

Camden County freeholder William F. Moen, Jr.  will replace Patricia Egan Jones (D-Barrington), who announced this month that she would not seek re-election to the legislature.

Moen is serving his second term on the Board of Freeholders.  The Camden resident served as an aide for the 5th district legislative delegation before joining Booker’s staff.

He was the unanimous choice of Camden County Democrats at a meeting this morning.

The 5th district includes Audubon, Audubon Park, Barrington, Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Camden, Gloucester City, Haddon Heights, Lawnside, Magnolia, Mount Ephraim, Runnemede and Woodlynne in Camden County and Deptford Township, Harrison Township, Mantua Township, Wenonah, Westville and Woodbury in Gloucester County.

The district has 46,404 more Democrat than Republicans and has not sent a Republican to the legislature since State Sen. Frank Italiano (R-Camden) won his last term in 1971.
