NEWARK – Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries leads a full nine-person slate running in the May 13th local non-partisan election.
Jeffries’ team includes North Ward Councilman Anibal Ramos, himself a candidate for mayor until he dropped out of that contest in Februrary and endorsed Jeffries, seeking re-election on the ticket of his former rival.
The Jeffries ticket features two other former members of the Booker Team: veteran East Ward Councilman Augusto Amador and At-Large Councilman Carlos Gonzalez.
Former Assemblyman Wilfredo Caraballo is Jeffries’ fellow professor of law at Seton Hall University. At-Large Council candidate Terrence Bankston is a former Booker Team member, while the Rev. Andre Speight in the much-watched Central Ward serves as chairman of the Central Ward Democratic Committee.
