Bayonne Councilman Tommy Cotter to run for re-election


BAYONNE – First Ward Councilman Tommy Cotter will run for re-election on Mayor James Davis’s ticket in the municipal elections in May against Sharma Montgomery, a former Board of Education candidate and Air Force veteran, who is running on mayoral candidate Jason O’Donnell’s ticket.
The First Ward Councilperson represents residents living south of 17th Street and 16th Street Park, including the Bergen Point neighborhood. Since being elected in 2014, Cotter has been a strong advocate for improvements to parks in Bergen Point and spearheaded the return of the Bergen Point Fall Festival.
Both mayoral campaigns have now announced complete slates of council candidates, with the current city council members all seeking re-election on Davis’s ticket.
“Four years ago, the Davis team was elected to turn this city around, and that’s’ exactly what has happened,” said Cotter in a press release. “I’m so excited to hit the streets and work toward victory in May because our city is finally on the right track, and we can’t let anyone stop our progress.”
“Tom Cotter understands how important it is to fight for our city’s future, which is why he’s always been an advocate for improving our parks and our programs for kids and families,” said Davis in a press release. “I’m excited to run again with Councilman Cotter and to have our full team now in place.”
