Sam Joshi is no longer screening with the Edison Democratic Committee for mayor of Edison.
“After careful consideration and extensive thought, I have decided at this time to not screen (internal convention vote) for Mayor with the 156 Democratic Committee Members.
“The lack of transparency, none to limited information, and the absence of rules and regulations surrounding the Mayoral screening process, the screening process for Mayor was at best, difficult.
“The process was further complicated due to the fact that the Chairman of our organization, who controls the information flow, all the contact lists and the establishment of rules and regulations, is himself running for Mayor.
“The committee people of our organization and residents of Edison deserve far better.”
