Scutari: new freeholder candidate will be from Plainfield or Linden – probably Plainfield

State Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Linden) didn’t protest the Democratic County Committee’s decision to deny the party line to Union County Freeholder Rayland Van Blake. 
 
“He’s a nice guy, but we’re going to respect the committee process,” Scutari told PolitickerNJ.com.

Union County Democratic Committee Chair Charlotte DeFilippo said yesterday that Plainfield would be her first town of choice in seeking a Van Blake replacement, but didn’t rule out Linden, which lacks a freeholder and is the scene this year of a mayoral contest.

“Both of those (Plainfield and Linden) have been considered, and one of those towns will certainly be represented – probably from Plainfield, in the near future,” Scutari said.  Scutari: new freeholder candidate will be from Plainfield or Linden – probably Plainfield
