“I think it’s great. Of course the Democratic Committee is a political organization, but it’s about much more than that. It’s about getting people involved in the community from all backgrounds. It’s about seeing the value in each person, and recognizing all that they have to bring to the table,” Davis said in a statement.

In New Jersey, municipal party committees are organized under state law by voting district. Each voting district may be represented by two individuals from each political party: one male and one female. The City of Bayonne encompasses 51 voting districts spread over 3 wards.

The 102 individuals endorsed by the mayor include current committee members, former elected officials, private sector employees and public sector employees.

Davis added that the slate also “reflects the diversity and strength of Bayonne as a community.”

The election of local committees will be held during the Primary Election scheduled for Tuesday, June 7. Polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

The current Bayonne Democratic Committee Chairman is Jason O’Donnell, a former state Assemblyman and city public safety director who is a long rumored mayoral candidate for 2018. He could not be reached for comment.
