Dominguez-Rodriguez fights off Diaz to retain chairmanship of Perth Amboy Dems

The Perth Amboy Democratic Committee voted last night to retain Leslie Dominguez-Rodriguez as chair.

On a 36 to 23 vote the committee re-elected Dominguez-Rodriguez as the chair over Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz’s candidate.

The Diaz team waged an aggressive campaign to dislodge Dominguez-Rodriguez but ultimately came up short at the reorganization meeting last night at the ZPA.  

Vice Chair of the Middlesex County Democratic Committee, which reorganizes tonight, and which will supplant sitting Chairman Peter Barnes with Kevin McCabe, Dominguez-Rodriguez last year worked against Diaz’s re-election and supported challenger Billy Delgado, whom Diaz defeated.
