Democrat Linda Carter was sworn in today as the newest member of the New Jersey State Assembly after winning a special election convention to fill the Assembly seat left vacant by the death of Jerry Green last month
“I am humbled and honored to be able to swear this oath and become a member of the General Assembly,” said Carter. “Now it’s time to roll up my sleeves and get to work in passing legislation to make New Jersey safer, stronger and more affordable.”
Carter will need to run in a November special election to fill the remaining fourteen months of Green’s term. Republicans have not yet nominated a candidate to challenge Carter in this strongly-Democratic legislative district.
“I promise to remain passionate, engaged and to always fight for the 22nd district,” Carter said. “While it is my great privilege to have the opportunity to bring lasting change to my home district, this is not about me. This is about the people of Middlesex, Somerset and Union Counties, and I will never lose sight of that.”
