Gloucester progressive slate fails to qualify for Dem primary

By David Wildstein, April 03 2020 12:07 pm

Nominating petitions for a slate of progressive freeholder candidates in Gloucester County were tossed for having an insufficient number of signatures.

Gloucester County Action Together New Jersey co-chair Lisa Bonnano had filed to run for freeholder with Rev. Sherry Hall and Howard Clark and planned to bracket with 2nd district congressional candidate Amy Kennedy.

They submitted just 94 signatures, six less than the legal requirement.

That leaves will face incumbents Heather Simmons, Lyman Barnes and Jim Jefferson without opposition in the Democratic primary.

Brigid Callahan Harrison is running on the Gloucester Democratic organization line with Joe Biden, Cory Booker and the incumbent freeholders.

The failure of Bonnano, Hall and Clark to get 100 signatures on their petitions means Kennedy’s ability to not be in ballot Siberia depends upon where County Clerk James Hogan draws her name in relation to three other off-the-line candidates: former congressional aide Will Cunningham, West Cape May commissioner John Francis III and retired FBI agent Robert Turkavage.
