Maley, Lewandowski announce re-election bids in Collingswood

By Nikita Biryukov, December 07 2020 9:11 am

Collingswood Commissioners Jim Maley and Rob Lewandowski will seek re-election along a yet unknown third candidate, they announced Friday.

Commissioner Joan Leonard, who has held her seat for nearly 24 years, is not seeking re-election.

“We’ve accomplished a lot throughout the years as a team,” Maley said. “Specifically, the revitalization and beautification of our business districts, historic preservation, and environmental initiatives, Joan was a big part of that and she definitely leaves a void that will be hard if not impossible to fill.”

The two incumbents running for another term will kick off their campaign through a virtual rally in the evening of Dec. 16.

They’re still seeking a candidate for Leonard’s seat.

Local elections in Collingswood are non-partisan.

“Through hard times and prosperity, our focus has always been what’s best for the people. I am as ready and truly excited to run today as I was on my first day and, with the support of the voters, hope to continue to serve the people in this truly amazing place. With what we are facing in the years ahead, we will rebuild all of our community to an even better version of the place you want to be,” Maley said.
