Former New Jersey Education Association President Marie Blistan was elected Cape May County Democratic Chair on Monday.
She defeated Leonora Boninfante Kodytek by more than 20 votes that worked out to be a margin of roughly 62%-38%.
“I am honored to continue the work that Chair Kurkowski led that has strengthened the foundation for Cape May Democrats,” said Blistan. “I am excited to work with my fellow committee leaders and members as well as my fellow Democratic Chairs to support a diverse pool of Democratic candidates into elected positions with the upcoming elections.”
Blistan, who ran the largest public employees union in the state from 2013 to 2021, succeeds
The incumbent, Daniel Kurkowski, resigned after less than one year as county chairman to become a Superior Court judge.
