The appearance of federal investigators lugging boxes out of Mayor Tony Mack’s home early this morning retriggered talk about the next chapter in Trenton if the troubled Mack goes down prior to 2014.
Potential successors include former Department of Public Works Director Eric Jackson, former McGreevey Deputy Chief of Staff James Gee, and former Councilwoman Annette Lartigue. Jason Redd, chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-37), could also run.
In a 2010 head to head to determine who would face Mack in a runoff election, Jackson came up a handful of votes short against former Councilman Manny Segura. Jackson ran with the quiet support of former Mayor Doug Palmer.
Sources say former Council President Paul Pintella won’t run.
