Morrell intends to press senior housing issue with Andrews

ORANGE – With Rep. Rob Andrews (D-1) planning a swing through Orange on Tuesday, Zoning Board Chair and mayoral candidate Janice Morrell prepared to take him on a tour of several of the city’s senior high-rises.

When Andrews, a candidate for U.S. Senate in next month’s Democratic Primary, abruptly canceled his walk with Morrell, his campaign cited a scheduling conflict.

But Morrell, who came in fourth in a field of six on Election Day in her quest to be the next mayor of Orange, said she still wants Andrews to come to her city.

“I want someone to do something about those seniors living in those buildings,” said Morrell. “They’ve been ignored for so long.”

Morrell said she had reached out to Andrews, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).
