Gorman, Peterson Victors in Borough Council Contest


FLEMINGTON, NJ – Republican incumbent John Gorman and newcomer Susan Peterson have each won election to Borough Council.

They were challenged by Democrats Joey Novick – a former Borough Councilman – and newcomer Harrison Gerdes.

In unofficial results released by Hunterdon County Clerk Marl Melfi, Peterson was the top vote-getter with 657 votes, or more than 28 percent of the total. Gorman trailed with 583 votes, or more than 25 percent of all votes cast.

The pair defeated Novick and Gerdes, who received 522 and 532 votes each, respectively.

Kim Tilly ran unopposed for the seat vacated by Carla Tabussi’s resignation in March. Tilly received 907 votes.

In March, Borough Council selected Alan Brewer to replace Tabussi. Because Brewer did not run in the general election, Tilly will be sworn to Borough Council at its next meeting on Nov. 21 and her term will expire at the end of next year.

In the contest for a seat on the Flemington-Raritan school board, incumbent Jessica Abbott ran unopposed for a two-year unexpired term. She received 724 votes. Incumbent Sandra Borucki ran unopposed for a single three-year term and received 740 votes.
