Democrats lead in two committee races in Cranford

Democrats are currently in the lead for two township committee seats in Cranford, where one incumbent from each party sought re-election, giving Democrats a 4-1 majority.

Democratic Mayor Kathleen Miller Prunty and her running mate, Terrence Curran, each have 24.7% of the vote; they lead Republican Committeewoman Mary O’Connor (23.8%) and Chrissa Stulpin (22.5%).

After joining its fellow Union County suburbs in voting Republican for decades, Cranford has become a Democratic-leaning town; it hasn’t supported a Republican for president since George W. Bush in 2004.

But local Republicans have remained competitive, flipping a council seat in 2021 and briefly bringing the Democratic majority down to 3-2.
