In his bid for re-election to a second term, Guttenberg Mayor Wayne Zitt, Jr. filed over 1,000 signatures – about one-in-three registered Democrats in the small Hudson County town – on his nominating petitions to run in the June primary.
Zitt will run with three incumbent councilmembers: Richard Delafuente, Monica Fundora and John Habermann.
“I am extremely proud of the work we have performed and the progress we have made for the residents of Guttenberg over the past four years,” Zitt said. “I am thankful to be part of such an outstanding team of dedicated public servants on the Town Council who truly care about improving the quality of life for our community and look forward to continuing to help move our town forward.”
Zitt was elected in 2017 without opposition following the retirement of Gerald R. Drasheff.
Drasheff won a 2008 special election after Mayor David Delle Donna resigned after being charged with corruption.
