Democrat Gains Enough Write-In Votes to Win Assembly Ballot Position!

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.”

Jimmy, who works for the Lakewood Township Department of Public Works, said when elected he will represent the working families of Monmouth and Ocean counties. Jimmy’s main focus will be rebuilding the economy in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

The 30th Legislative District (LD-30) includes the municipalities of Avon-by-the-Sea, Belmar, Bradley Beach, Brielle, Farmingdale, Howell, Lake Como, Lakewood, Manasquan, Point Pleasant Boro, Sea Girt, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Heights and Wall.

Esposito joins Assembly candidate Lorelei Rouvrais of Farmingdale and State Senate candidate William Field of Howell to take on the GOP incumbents in LD-30.
