Mironov is front runner for Mercer Dem chair

East Windsor mayor likely to succeed Verlina Jackson-Reynolds

By David Wildstein, June 10 2018 1:17 pm

Verlina Reynolds-Jackson will not seek re-election as Mercer County Democratic Chair on Wednesday and longtime East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov has emerged as the top candidate to succeed her.

Mironov, who has served as mayor for the last 23 years, has no opposition for the post so far, according to Mercer Democratic sources.  The election will be held on Wednesday evening — pushed off one day because of the runoff elections in Trenton.  Other candidates could still come forward and be nominated from the floor.

Reynolds-Jackson became chairman after Rich McClellan died suddenly in 2016 at age 61.  A Trenton city councilwoman, she won a special election for State Assembly earlier this year when Elizabeth Muoio resigned to become state treasurer.  She is stepping down to concentrate her efforts in her new Assembly seat and full-time county job.

If she wins, Mironov will be one of seven  women to head county political organizations in New Jersey.  The departure of Reynolds-Jackson reduces the number of Black county chairs from four to three.  There are two Hispanic county chairs.
