MORRISTOWN, NJ - Alison Deeb, Councilwoman from Morristown, is one of six candidates seeking the vacant NJ State Assembly seat that is now available since Assemblyman Anthony Bucco got sworn in to his late father's empty State Senate seat.

Tonight at the County College of Morris, Republican County Committee members from the Legislative District 25 will convene to elect Bucco's replacement.  Bucco was sworn in to his father's seat on October 24th.  The state law dictates that the vacant seat must be filled within 35 days from the time of vacancy.

Morristown's Alison Deeb is one of the six people who will be asking for the delegates' votes.  Others vying for the seat are attorney John Barbarula from Randolph, the Deputy Mayor of Mendham Township Sarah Neibart, Aura Dunn of Mendham Borough, Bob Olejar, an attorney from Randolph and Al Ribeiro from Bernardsville.
