Palmer hopeful of Jackson victory this time

TRENTON – Former Mayor Doug Palmer says he’s with Eric Jackson for mayor.

“He’s going to be a great mayor,” said Palmer, who campaigned with Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley today in support of the U.S. Senate candidacy of Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Jackson served as Palmer’s director of the Department of Public Works.

With Palmer’s support in 2010, Jackson just failed to make the runoff in a loss to Tony Mack, who’s now under indictment on federal corruption charges.  Palmer hopeful of Jackson victory this time
