EDISON, NJ - Edison Democrats, now led by Chairman Keith Hahn and Mayor Thomas Lankey, are uniting behind Councilman Robert Karabinchak to fill an upcoming 18th District Assembly vacancy.

The Edison Democratic Committee, by majority vote, endorsed Karabinchak over other hopefuls at its May 2 mini-convention. “We collectively recognize that Rob has the most political and business experience to represent Edison and our neighboring towns in Trenton,” Hahn said.

“We are confident Rob is the right choice to be our voice in the Statehouse and fight for the needs of hard-working middle class families,” Lankey said. “As a councilman, Rob is cost-conscious and diligent about protecting our taxpayers. He will, without doubt, do the same for us in Trenton.”

Karabinchak has also garnered endorsements from Middlesex County Freeholder Charles Tomaro, Council President Michael R. Lombardi, Council Vice President Alvaro Gomez and Councilmen Ajay Patil and Leonard D. Sendelsky.

Councilman Bob Diehl, who initially sought party backing for the Assembly seat, now pledges to stand behind Karabinchak's candidacy to promote Democratic Party unity.

“I am deeply honored by the confidence my fellow Edison Democrats have shown for me. I am more grateful that our municipal organization is uniting and working together toward mutual interests and goals,” said Karabinchak.

“Now, my goal is to build unity and consensus among Democrats from the seven towns that comprise our 18th District,” said Karabinchak, referring to East Brunswick, Edison, Helmetta, Highland Park, Metuchen, South Plainfield and South River.

Karabinchak, now in his eighth year on the Edison Township Council, has served multiple terms as council president and on its Finance Committee. Prior to that, Karabinchak served eight years on the town's Zoning Board of Adjustment and other municipal posts. He is also a Middlesex County Utilities Authority commissioner.

A local property owner and successful small business owner for over 30 years, Karabinchak is an outspoken advocate for statewide property tax reform. He has publicly promoted changes to New Jersey's commercial tax appeal process to prevent it from shifting a greater financial burden onto homeowners.
