Democratic Committee representatives from the 15th Legislative District, in Mercer and Hunterdon Counties, convened this morning at Hollowbrook Community Hall, in Ewing, to choose the successor representative to the State Assembly, filling Assemblywoman Liz Muoio’’s vacating seat.

Assemblywoman Liz Muoio (D), a Pennington, NJ resident, is now serving as New Jersey’s new State Treasurer, and has served in the State Assembly since 2015 when she succeeded now Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman’s seat.

In a packed convention presided by Arthur Sypek, Jr., Democratic Party leaders chose Verlina Reynolds Jackson, current chair of the Mercer County Democratic Committee, to represent the district in the Assembly, joining Assemblyman Reed Gusciora and Senator Shirley Turner.
