"Amy will make a superb Assemblywoman," said Panter. "A widely recognized business leader, a mother, a philanthropist, a trustee of her synagogue, and someone who will lead in the Assembly just as she has in her community.”
Mallet sought the Democratic nomination for Assembly in 2003. Running on a ticket with Senate candidate Gordon Gemma, she lost the primary to Panter and Dr. Robert Morgan.
The Republican Assembly candidates are Little Silver Councilman Declan O'Scanlon, who lost narrowly in 2005, and attorney Caroline Cassagrande.
