Cucci loses Jersey City school board seat, Kanka wins in Hamilton

Jersey City voters have ousted Anthony Cucci, a former Mayor, from his seat on the Board of Education. Cucci defeated incumbent Gerald McCann in 1985, but lost his re-election bid in a rematch with McCann four years later.

Richard Kanka, who helped push legislators to create Megan's Law after his nine-year-old daughter was murdered by a convicted sex offender living in their neighborhood, won a seat on the Hamilton Township Board of Education.
