Danielsen wins Dems’ nod for 17th District Assembly seat

Franklin Twp. Democratic Committee Chairman Joe Danielsen won the support of the Democratic Committee in the 17th Legislative District earlier today in a special convention.

Danielsen wants to succeed former Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula, who last week formally took the oath of office as a commissioner with the Board of Public Utilities.

Danielsen beat Jim Walsh of New Brunswick by a vote of 118 to eight.

Danielsen will fill Chivukula’s seat and run to secure a full, two-year term next year. Danielsen wins Dems’ nod for 17th District Assembly seat
