Prieto’s future tied to Elwell replacement

Assemblyman Vincent Prieto (D-Secaucus) could be a casualty of the turbulent world of Secaucus politics, if Democratic-turned-Independent Councilman Michael Gonnelli winds up winning the race for Mayor. Mayors rule in Hudson County, and since the District 32 Assembly seat is viewed as belonging to Secaucus, Gonnelli might get to pick his own guy when the seat comes up in 2011. Prieto was picked by Mayor Dennis Elwell after Anthony Impreveduto (D-Secaucus) resigned in 2004.
