UNION, NJ -- Despite the contentiousness of the June 4 Primary in several municipalities -- including Union -- across Union County, when it came time to select the county's Democratic Chair no one challenged State Senator Nick Scutari for the top spot at Kean University on Tuesday, June 11. 

Assemblywoman Linda Carter (LD-22) of Plainfield will replace Mayor Mahr as the new vice chair of the Union County Democratic Committee. Like Scutari, Carter ran unopposed following Mahr's decision not to run and put forward a candidacy.
