Former Paterson Deputy Mayor Awni Abuhedba this afternoon told PolitickerNJ that it’s premature to say that he is running for the Ward 6 seat in Paterson and does not intend to oppose his nephew.
“It’s too early,” he said. “I did not make any announcement.
“If Abdel-aziz is running, I’m not running,” he added. “People are spreading rumors about me.”
Aduhedba did not utterly dismiss the notion of a run, but only if Abdel-aziz is not a candidate.
The former deputy mayor first ran for the Ward 6 seat (unsuccessfully) in 1984 against then-incumbent Councilman Tom Rooney.
