FANWOOD, NJ - Supporters of Fanwood Democratic council candidates Dan Levine and Jack Molenaar packed Nick's Pizza and Deli on Martine Avenue the evening of September 20th for a pizza party fundraiser. A $40 donation got visitors all they could eat pizza, subs and salads, plus beer and wine.

Mayor Colleen Mahr, who is also Fanwood's Democratic Chairperson, did a pitch for getting out the vote on November 6th, a sentiment echoed by Jamar Tyndale, Union County's representative for the Obama Presidential Campaign.
