Hsueh backs Greenstein for senate seat

Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh said tonight he intends to back Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein (D-Plainsboro) for state senate.

“If Linda Greenstein is running, I will definitely support her,” Hsueh told PolitickerNJ.com. “Linda and I go back years. She is a very serious person and we have worked together very well on issues impacting the residents of West Windsor.”

Two Mercer County towns are situated in the 14th District.

Republican Mayor John Bencivengo serves the bigger anchor town of Hamilton. Hsueh is the lone Democratic mayor in the other town, West Windsor.

Greenstein earlier secured the endorsements of the Democratic mayors in three of the five towns in Middlesex County, which represents roughly the other half of the 14th Legislative District. So far, as she heads toward an as-yet unscheduled Democratic convention, Greenstein has the backing of four out of the district’s six Democratic Party mayors.
