Former Asbury Park Mayor Ed Johnson is “seriously thinking about” running for governor in 2017, according to a report on PolitickerNJ.
“I know a little about raising cities from the dead, and I know about staring down Hurricane Sandy,” said Johnson, who runs his own private consulting firm. “There are no greater troubled waters than our state right now. Whether it’s Democratic or Republican it just keeps going.Everything I’ve done, people said ‘you can’t do that,’ and we did it. People now say the state is too far gone, too broken, it can’t be fixed. I think it can be. I’m not saying I’ve made a final decision. It would be a wildcat, barn-burner election, no question, but the people must regain control of this state.”
Johnson stared down Hurricane Sandy by hosting New Jersey Democratic leaders at a pre-election rally on October 28, 2012. Senator Bob Menendez, Cory Booker, then mayor of Newark, former Governor Dick Codey, Congressman Frank Pallone and state Senator Barbara Buono joined Johnson and Monmouth Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal in a rally for Menendez and President Obama while the rest of New Jersey was preparing for the worst and praying to be spared by the troubled waters of Sandy.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 NJ Gubernatorial Politics, Asbury Park, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2017 Gubernatorial race, Asbury Park, Bob Mendendez, Cory Booker, Dick Codey, Ed Johnson, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, NJ Democrats, Vin Gopal | Comments Off on Former Asbury Park Mayor Considering Gubernatorial Run
