Don’t forget about the Paterson Mayor’s race next year, where everyone is waiting on an oracle to visit the political calculations of Assemblyman Benji Wimberly (D-35).
In the meantime, here’s how the contenders stack up moneywise, according to ELEC…
Jeff Jones, incumbent Mayor: $35,000;
Jose “Joey’ Torres: $23,000;
Council President Andre Sayegh: $51,000;
Don’t let the money disparity fool you.
It won’t be cash that gets Wimberly into city hall if he decides to run, but organization. In the words of one possible challenger to Jones, “If Benji gets in, I’m gone.”
