It’s not over till it’s over

The results of two North Jersey mayoral elections are being challenged in court, even though the certified winners will take office on January 1. In Parsippany, a suit alleging voting irregularities filed by Republican Rosemarie Agostini will be heard in Superior Court on January 4. Agostini, a Councilwoman who has run for Mayor four times, lost to Democrat Michael Luther by 40 votes. The case has attracted two high-profile lawyers: John Carbone will represent Agostini and Angelo Genova is Luther’s attorney. Former Edison Councilman William Stephens, a Democrat who ran for Mayor as an Independent, say his 270 vote loss to Democrat Jun Choi was also a result of irregularities and campaign finance fraud. A Middlesex County Judge has not yet decided whether to hear Stephens’ complaint.
