Will There be a Seventh Perth Amboy Mayoral Candidate on the Ballot?

Judge Cameron Pushes On – Continues Campaigning Until Decision is Made

NEW BRUNSWICK — The campaign of Former Perth Amboy Municipal Court Judge Jose Cameron announced today that the New Jersey Superior Court has restrained the Perth Amboy Municipal Clerk and the Middlesex County Clerk from printing and distributing Mail-In Ballots until the court can hold a full hearing on the reasons why the Perth Amboy Clerk excluded Mr. Cameron from the ballot.

The court entered the order at the request of the Cameron campaign, who has brought suit in Middlesex County Superior Court seeking to be included on the ballot for the November 6, 2012 election for Perth Amboy Mayor. (Jose Cameron v. Elaine M. Jasko et. al., Docket No.: MID-L-6265-12)

“Our campaign is very pleased that the court entered the Order to Show Cause. We are confident that we will get a full and fair hearing in the Superior Court. Our campaign will continue in full force on the streets of Perth Amboy because we believe that the nominating petitions that we submitted were more than legally sufficient,” said Perth Amboy mayoral candidate Jose Cameron.

“Our campaign submitted 332 nominating petitions from legal Perth Amboy voters, 115 more than were required. No other campaign objected to our petitions. Somehow the City Clerk found that over forty percent of these valid petitions were invalid,” continued Cameron.

“We have gone to court to stand up for the right of the voters of Perth Amboy to have a full choice of candidates on November 6, and for the rights of the 332 lawful Perth Amboy voters who nominated me to be their mayor,” concluded Cameron.

The court has scheduled a hearing for September 27, 2012 at 9 a.m. before Hon.

Heidi Willis Currier, JSC at the Middlesex County Courthouse.
