Huttle won’t challenge Donovan

Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-37), Englewood, will not challenge Republican incumbent Bergen County Executive Kathe Donovan in 2014.

Huttle told PolitickerNJ said she wants to work on Port Authority reform, Bridgegate SCI, and healthcare issues – particularly mental health.

“As much as it’s tempting to be considered to be the nominee for county executive, running for Bergen County executive is not part of my plan in the months ahead,” Huttle said.

Earlier today, County Surrogate Mike Dressler told PolitickerNJ he also would not pursue a run for county executive this year.
