Rice backs Blackman for Dover mayor

Alderwoman faces an independent bid from incumbent

By Nikita Biryukov, October 30 2019 2:29 pm

State Sen. Ronald Rice endorsed Carolyn Blackman for Dover Mayor Wednesday.

“As the citizens of Dover prepare to choose their next mayor, I urge them to take a good hard look at the choice before them,” Rice said. “With a meager and mediocre record of accomplishments as mayor, incumbent James Dodd is most known for exhibiting bombastic behavior, hurling outrageously offensive language and raging, out of control, openly on public streets.”

Blackman, a Dover Alderwoman, is the Democratic nominee for mayor. Dodd is seeking re-election as an independent after losing the support of the Morris County Democratic Organization last year.

“If Dover wants a mayor who conducts herself with dignity, serves with intelligence and vision, and works her heart out to uphold her fellow citizens and uplift the community, the choice is clear,” Rice said. “Carolyn Blackman for mayor to lead Dover onward and upward.”
