The Linden Democratic Committee will run Councilwoman Gretchen Hickey for mayor in the Democratic primary for mayor against incumbent Derek Armstead.
Hickey will run on a slate with Council President Jorge Alvarez and Councilmen Armando Medina and O’Neil Thomas, Jr.
“This is a terrific and diverse field of candidates,” stated State Sen. Nick Scutari, the Linden Democratic Municipal Chairman and the Union County Democratic Chairman. “Taxpayers in Linden deserve public servants whose sole focus is to only work in the interests of the residents they serve. With Gretchen, Jorge, Armando, and O’Neil on our Democratic ticket, Linden voters have a dynamic and talented team they can trust.”
