Assemblyman John Amodeo (R-2) will run for re-election next year, he told PolitickerNJ.com.
He doesn’t intend to challenge state Sen. Jim Whelan (D-2). Moreover, he denied rumors that he plans to depart the Assembly to take a job at the South Jersey Economic Development Authority.
Not true, said the assemblyman.
He also dismissed a rumor that he is in line for a job at the South Jersey Transportation Authority.
“Not true,” he told PolitickerNJ.com.
“I’m proud of the way I’ve served and, absolutely, I plan to run again,” said the operating engineer by trade.
Amodeo won re-election last year with running mate Chris Brown on a GOP ticket mangled by the political demise of former Assemblyman Vince Polistina (R-2).
Polistina challenged Whelan and lost.
