Jones favors McDaniel for Wimberly seat

Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones said he supports former City Council candidate Ken McDaniel for the city council seat Benjie Wimberly will vacate when he becomes a 35th District assemblyman next year.

At-Large Councilman Rigo Rodriguez edged McDaniel in a controversial finish of the 2010 municipal elections.

The state AG’s Office later charged Rodriguez and members of his campaign with voter fraud as part of a case that is not yet resolved.

The councilman assumed the oath of office for another term anyway despite calls from then-Council President Aslon Goow and others for him to resign.
