ELEC files complaint against NJ assemblyman

Alleges Jim Kennedy failed to file reports from his 2017 campaign

Assemblyman James Kennedy (D-Rahway) faces a three-count complaint for not filing campaign finance reports from his 2017 re-election campaign.

The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission alleges that Kennedy failed to file his 11-day and 29-day pre-election reports or his 20-day post-election report.

Kennedy may seek a hearing before the commission and has 20 days to file a written answer to the complaint.

A former five-term mayor of Rahway, Kennedy was elected to the Assembly in 2015.  He replaced Linda Stender (D-Fanwood), who declined to seek re-election amidst allegations that she falsified data in a filing with Coastal Habitat for Humanity to demolish and rebuild a summer home in Manasquan that was damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

Kennedy is up for re-election this year and holds a safe Democratic Assembly seat.
