Local candidates in three New Jersey towns sail to unopposed wins

Candidates for local office in three New Jersey towns won re-election unopposed Tuesday.

In Sea Isle City, Council members J.B. Feeley, John Gibson and Mary Tighe won re-election. They’ll each serve another four-year term. It’ll be the second for Feeley, who was first elected in 2017.

Gibson served six terms in the Assembly before losing re-election in 2005. He joined Sea Isle’s City Council in 2013. Tighe has been on the council since Sea Isle stopped adopted the governing body in 2007.

Elections in Sea Isle tend to be somewhat sleepy. Tuesday’s victors were also unopposed in 2017, and Mayor Leonard Desiderio and his running mates faced no opposition in 2019 either.

In Avalon, newcomers Maura Coskey and James McDermott Jr. will join Councilman John McCorristin on the borough’s governing body. The term will be McCorristin’s second.

Incumbents James Deever and Nancy Hudanich, the council president, did not seek re-election.

In Audubon, Commissioners Robert Lee and Jeffrey Whitman won re-election unopposed. They’re joined by Camden County Department of Health and Human Services employee Robert Jakubowski, who will fill Mayor John Ward’s seat on the borough’s three-member commission.
