Trenton Votes in Mayoral Runoff Election

TRENTON (AP) — Voters in Trenton return to the polls to elect a mayor.

Tuesday’s runoff comes after Paul Perez and Eric Jackson were the top two vote-getters from a field of six candidates in last month’s nonpartisan city election. Neither captured more than half the vote.

Perez is seeking to become Trenton’s first Latino mayor and is running as an outsider.

He grew up in the city but has spent most of the last three decades away, serving in the Army and then working as a security management consultant based in Washington, D.C.

Jackson has served as the city’s director of public works.

The election comes weeks after disgraced Mayor Tony Mack was sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison after he was convicted on corruption charges.
