Kennedy will seek re-election

Rumors of Assemblyman James Kennedy’s retirement have been greatly exaggerated.

Kennedy (D-Rahway) will run for re-election this year, he told the New Jersey Globe Monday.

“Yes,” he said when asked if he planned to seek a third term. “That’s an easy question.”

The assemblyman will formally announce his reelection bid at a fundraiser on Feb. 20.

Kennedy first ran for Assembly in 2015, when longtime Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Fanwood) announced her retirement.

Before that, Kennedy served as mayor of Rahway for almost 20 years, between 1991 and 2010.

The 22nd district, which includes parts of Union, Somerset and Middlesex counties, has 45,117 more Democrats than Republicans.

One thought on “Kennedy will seek re-election

  1. Former Scotch Plains Councilman Bo Vastine should run for Assembly again on the Republican side. He’d be a great candidate and would vote in the negative on Murphy’s tax hikes!
