Former Jackson Council Vice President Alex Sauicki To Be Sworn In To The Assembly On Thursday

Former Jackson Council Vice President Alex Sauicki will be sworn in to the New Jersey state Assembly on Thursday, as the Legislature returns for the fall session.

Sauickie, who won a special election last month to replace the late Assemblyman Ronald Dancer, who passed away following a long illness, has already resigned his post on the township council.

Sauickie won his special election in a landslide, receiving 106 votes. His two opponents, Dominick Cuozzo, a Plumsted Township Committeeman and former Jackson Councilman Scott Martin, received 44 and 3 votes respectively.

The Assemblyman-select had to give up his council seat due to a 2007 state law prohibiting state legislators from holding dual seats.

Sauickie will be on the ballot in November, as he will be seeking to fill the remainder of Dancer’s term, but is the odds-on favorite to win the seat in the heavily red 12th Legislative District – and does not even have a Democrat opponent yet.

The 12th District includes areas of 4 counties, Ocean, Burlington, Monmouth and Middlesex.

Jackson and Plumsted are the only two towns from Ocean County which are included in the 12th Legislative District.

The filing deadline to get on the ballot is 4pm on Thursday.
