We know that Montclair council members Cary Africk and Renee Baskerville have thrown their hats in the ring for the May elections. Africk has picked up election petition packets from the Municipal Clerk for his current position, 2nd Ward Councilor, as well as Council at Large. Baskerville will be running for 4th Ward Council again.
Now Harvey Susswein appears poised to enter the race—and he is the first who has picked up an election package for the mayoral seat (he also requested a petition for Councilor at Large).
Susswein, a longtime civic activist, posted a website in October declaring his candidacy for Mayor, but soon after took down the website.
