Tracy Ness of the Independent Press is reporting that retiring School Board of the Chathams Superintendent Jim O’Neill is running for the State Assembly in the 26th District.
Ness reports that O’Neill made his announcement at the recent Morris County Democratic Club breakfast.
“I have been doing my homework meeting with top Democratic officials before making my decision to run,” he said on Wednesday.
“Whether he will run for the senate or assembly is still up in the air pending the finalization of the redistricting plan, which is due on April 3. O’Neill is currently gathering signatures for his candidate petition and plans to file on April 11,” Ness reported.
