Colletti wins GOP nod in Elmwood Park

Unclear who he’ll face in general

Former Mayor Robert Colletti has won the Republican nomination to run for mayor in Elmwood Park, defeating his primary opponent, Maggie Giandomenico by 46 votes.

It’s not clear who Colletti will face in the general election.

Former Mayor Frank Caramagna resigned from his post in April as part of a plea deal with prosecutors following an investigation into tampering with vote-by-mail ballots during his last campaign.

He has not yet announced whether he would withdraw from the race or seek re-election to a second term anyway, although his allies suggest that he will.

Democrats will have the chance to replace him if he drops out of the race.

Councilman Joseph Dombrowski told the New Jersey Globe this week that he expects to seek the Democratic nomination for mayor.
