EDISON – Mayor Jun Choi officially announced his re-election campaign and named his running mates on Monday. The mayor, a Democrat seeking his second four-year term, is again running without the backing of the township’s Democratic organization.

“We need to revitalize Edison Township and the Democratic Party, with an infusion of fresh talent, untarnished by old guard politics and willing to stand up to special interest politics,” Choi said.

Joining the mayor on the ballot are Rachel Callen, a teacher and community activist; Meiling Kravarik, president and owner of a local realty firm; and Edward Fitzgerald, a retired captain in the Union County Prosecutor’s Office.
