Two names continue to circulate as potential challengers next year to Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer (D-29) and Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-29) in Newark.
They are two allies of Mayor Ras Baraka: Alturrick Kenney and Pat Council.
Kenney is a senior consultant at Impact Public Affairs and former School Advisory Board member.
Council is the director of neighborhood services and a past member of the School Advisory Board. He ran unsuccessfully earlier this year for an at-large council seat.
