EDISON – The little squat homes, side by side, row after row, sit in crunched-together highway exhaust fumes and dotting the scraps of lawns in a front of a few them appear a recurring sign: Democrats for Keith Hahn.
Hahn’s running for mayor with the support of the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA), reanimating as a Republican after having had the local Democratic chairmanship wrenched away from him by Shariq Ahmad.
Ahmad backs incumbent Democratic Mayor Tom Lankey, who’s on the ballot tomorrow and hopeful of turning back Hahn.
“We’re making the case for what we’ve done for four years,” said Lankey in Royal Albert Palace this evening, where he appeared in support of gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy. “We’re asking people to look at our record.
“It’s like going into a game,” the mayor added of his campaign. “We’re confident, but we’ll see what happens.”
