An unsuccessful 2013 candidate for mayor, Batista is actively looking for support, say source in LD20.

The Union County Democratic Committee is poised to back incumbent Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-20) and Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley, who is set to get sworn in next week as the new LD20 assemblyman, the successor to Sheriff Joe Cryan.

If Batista runs, he may have to partner with that local political organization otherwise known as the Elizabeth Board of Education.

To date, Board Member Tony Monteiro’s name has circulated as a possible challenger to Quijano and Holley.
