FLEMINGTON, NJ – Voters will have choices when they go to the polls in November to elect representatives on Flemington Borough Council, according to Hunterdon County Clerk Mary Melfi.

Republican John Gorman, who has served continuously on Council since the mid-80s, is not seeking re-election. Both seasoned veterans and political newcomers seek his seat.

Marc Hain, who previously served on Council but lost a re-election bid last November, again seeks a seat along with Sandi Scott, a fellow Republican and political newcomer.

They’ll be opposed for the three-year seat on Council by Democratic newcomers Jessica Hand and Javier Hernandes, along with a pair of independent candidates: former Flemington-Raritan school board member and Councilperson Alan Brewer and newcomer Alexandra Shore.  

When a vacancy on Council was created after Councilperson Betsy Driver was elected mayor last year, Democrat Jeffrey Doshna was chosen to take her place on Council. He’s now in the race for the one-year unexpired term, and will be opposed by the Republican former Councilperson Kim Tilly, who lost her re-election bid in 2017.
