Citing family concerns, Delany to resign from Assembly; won’t pursue full term in LD 8

Assemblyman Pat Delany (R-8), who replaced state Sen. Dawn Addiego in the Assembly when Addiego moved up to become the 8th District senator, will resign from the Assembly and scrap his plans to run for a full term. 

“Today, I have made the difficult decision to resign from the New Jersey General Assembly and to abandon my campaign for a full-term this fall,” said Delany.  

“While I have enjoyed my time in public service immensely and am proud of what I have been able to accomplish on both the local and state level, my family is the most important thing in the world to me and always will be. Regrettably, at this time, there are personal issues with my family that require my full and immediate attention. I want to thank the voters who have given me the opportunity to serve in both Lumberton Township and the state Legislature. I look forward to continuing to make a positive contribution to my community outside of politics and government as a private citizen.”

Republican sources in Burlington County said Delany’s confronting a marital situation.
