Primary petition challenges go to court Thursday

Challenges to several Plainfield Democratic primary election petitions will be heard by a Union County judge in Elizabeth Thursday.

Assemblyman Jerry Green, as chair of the Plainfield RDO, is challenging the petition of New Dem Ward 1 candidate Emmett Swan.

The New Dems are challenging the petitions of RDO candidates Taylor, Eke and Toliver on various grounds.

The judge's ruling is expected the same day and will determine the final lineup for the June 3 primary election.

Though I won't be able to attend the court proceedings (I have a Library Board meeting), I will try to pass along the results afterward.
