Dansereau wins the mayor’s race in Roselle


Mayor Christine Dansereau has defeated Cecilia Dallas Ricks in Roselle to succeed Jamel Holley as mayor for a full four-year term.

“I’m conceding,” operative Pablo Fonseca told PolitickerNJ.

Turnout was very low, unofficially in the 2,000 range.

Dansereau blew out former Councilwoman Dallas Ricks by a 2-1 margin (conservatively) while the mayor’s running mate, Holley and Assembly colleague Annette Quijano racked up huge pluralities respectively in Holley’s home town.

“The voters of Roselle overwhelmingly rejected a failed political past and their negative campaign tonight – reaffirming their support for Jamel Holley,” said Dansereau Spokesman Mike Makarski. “Christine Dansereau, Reginald Atkins and the Roselle Democrats. The results speak for themselves.” Dansereau wins the mayor’s race in Roselle
