Martin Running for Mayor of Hamilton

Robbinsville Mayor Dave Fried, a Republicaton, was spied at a fundraiser for Hamilton NJ democratic mayoral candidate Jeff Martin. Should Martin win the primary election, he would run against either Republican Mayor Kelly Yaede or Yaede’s Republican challenger, Dave Henderson.

Today, Hamilton Township Council President Jeff Martin announced that he will enter the race for Hamilton Township Mayor.

An Air Force veteran, Martin made the announcement earlier today at the VFW Hall in the presence of dozens of supporters and elected officials from across Mercer County. He was joined by his wife, Scarlett, and family. Martin’s announcement speech was preceded by speeches of support from Hamilton residents Gil Lugossy, Marilyn Jose, Dave Krueger, Ana Bauersachs and Dan Smith.

The Democrat is running to secure his party’s nomination to oppose Republican incumbent Mayor Kelly Yaede.

“It is time for real leadership in Hamilton,” said Martin. “I’ve talked with residents from Yardville to Mercerville, Broad Street Park to Bromley, and they say the same thing; we need a new Mayor who respects and supports our first responders; a new Mayor who, while respecting Hamilton’s past, has a vision for its future; someone who will be a Mayor for everyone – no matter your neighborhood.

“This is our time to elect a new Mayor who understands and represents our working-class values,” the candidate added. “I stand before you today asking for your support and your vote to give Hamilton a brighter future.”

Some of the elected officials present included:

Senators Linda Greenstein and Troy Singleton

Assemblypersons Wayne DeAngelo, Dan Benson, Verlina Reynolds-Jackson & Anthony Verrelli

County Executive Brian Hughes

Freeholders John Cimino and Nina Melker

Sheriff John “Jack” Kemler

Mercer County Clerk Pula Sollami Covello
