Democrat Wayne Marek is seeking a rematch against Assembly Minority Leader Alex DeCroce (R-Parsippany) and Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) in the 26th Legislative District.
Marek announced today that he filed his nominating petitions for assembly in the solidly Republican district, as well as for the Morris Plains School Board. Since the elections are held on different dates, Marek can run for both.
“Given my past experience, I believe I would be a tremendous asset if elected in either capacity,” said Marek in a statement. “Having already run for the Assembly in 2007, I am well versed on the issues facing the district and state and I am prepared to offer innovative solutions to those issues. I will offer our voters a platform that creates no new taxes, initiates no new spending or borrowing and is responsive to the goal of reducing property taxes. We can accomplish this through expansive use of shared services and urban revitalization.”
In 2007, Marek and his running mate, David Modrak, came up about 11,000 votes shy of Webber and 12,000 votes short of DeCroce.
