LAKEWOOD - Democratic candidate Jimmy Esposito, 53, of Lakewood received enough write-in votes in the primary election on Tuesday to receive a place on the General Election ballot in November.
Esposito, who is running for New Jersey State Assembly in the 30th Legislative District, responded “I am honored by the support I received from people who wrote me in and I’m very happy to be running. I look forward to my campaign and I’m excited to represent everyone from the 30th District in Trenton.”
