Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson (D-Trenton) plans to stay on as Mercer County Democratic Committee chairwoman now that she’s in the statehouse.
“We’ve done a lot of great things here in the county trying to make sure we keep all of our Democratic people in office, and I think we want to continue along,” Reynolds-Jackson said. “We have a good coalition to do that”
Reynolds-Jackson won a special election for the 15th district Assembly seat in February, after Elizabeth Muoio resigned to become state treasurer under Gov. Phil Murphy. Reynolds-Jackson gave up her Trenton city council seat to go to the Legislature and is not a candidate in tomorrow’s Trenton municipal election.
She is one of four incumbent legislators to serve as county chair on the Democratic side.
