Reynolds-Jackson backs Gusciora in Trenton mayoral race

Verrelli signs on in support of Gusciora re-election

Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson (D-Trenton) has endorsed Reed Gusciora for re-election, giving the Trenton mayor the support of a local lawmaker who is well-respected throughout the state’s capital city.

Reynolds-Jackson served as a Trenton city councilwoman before her election to the legislature and is a former Mercer County Democratic chair.   The support of a popular Black lawmaker could be a tremendous boost to a white mayor running against two Black women in the November 8 non-partisan municipal election.

Gusciora also received the backing of Assemblyman Anthony Verrelli (D-Hopewell).

“We support Reed because he is committed to doing what is necessary to move Trenton forward for its residents,” Reynolds-Jackson and Verrelli said in a statement.   “Reed brings much needed experience and stability to Trenton.”

Reynolds-Jackson and Verrelli said that Gusciora’s “experience in state and local government, environmental justice, and economic development will help to build a strong foundation to manage and administer quality services to the residents and businesses in Trenton.”
