Former Camden City Councilman William Spearman was elected to the New Jersey State Assembly tonight, winning a special election convention to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Arthur Barclay last week.

Spearman could be sworn in as early as Friday, when the Assembly is scheduled to hold a voting session.

Barclay resigned last week after the New Jersey Globe reported that he had been arrested on June 7 on domestic violence charges.  He is scheduled to appear in court next Thursday.

Spearman, 60, is currently the compliance and ethics officer for the South Jersey Transportation Authority.  He is spent six years as a councilman and served as director of economic and industrial development for the City of Camden.

The 5th district includes parts of Camden and Gloucester counties: Audubon, Audubon Park, Barrington, Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Camden, Deptford, Gloucester City, Haddon Heights, Harrison (Gloucester), Lawnside, Magnolia, Mantua, Mount Ephraim, Runnemede, Wenonah, Westville, Woodbury, and Woodlynne.
