Flood picked for Hudson Register

Willie Flood, a fomer Jersey City Councilwoman who had been aligned with the late Glenn Cunningham, will run for Hudson County Register with the support of the Hudson County Democratic Organization. The incumbent, Barbara Donnelly, the sister of the late Paul Byrne, is not seeking re-election. Flood ran on Cunningham’s line for County Clerk in 2003, losing to incumbent Janet Haynes, and her unsuccessful campaign for Mayor in a 2004 Special Election was endorsed by Cunningham’s widow. Her endorsement by U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, Senate Majority Leader Bernard Kenny, the HCDO Chairman, and Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy represents a major peace accord in Hudson County politics.
