Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin today announced that she will seek the Democratic nomination for Middlesex County Clerk.
“It has been my great honor to represent the 18th Legislative District in the General Assembly and I am thrilled that I will have the opportunity to represent all of Middlesex County as its next County Clerk ,” said Pinkin. “I will be reaching out to the county committee and municipal leaders throughout the county in the coming weeks.
“Middlesex County has been my home and the place where my husband and I raised our family. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve all of our residents and I believe strongly that my experience as both a local elected official and a state legislature has prepared me for this role.”
Pinkin, a former East Brunswick Councilwoman, has represented the 18th Legislative District in the General Assembly since 2014. She is running to succeed Elaine Flynn, who has served as the Middlesex County Clerk for the past 25 years. During Flynn’s tenure, Middlesex County became a state leader in providing greater access to vote-by-mail for all residents, free of cost.
