Today, Jacqueline Weimmer, a community leader who works as the National Director of Special Needs Solutions at Comerica Bank, was announced as Davis’ 2nd Ward candidate. She replaces Councilman Sal Gullace who ran twice with Mayor Davis, but was passed over for a third run on his re-election slate this time around.
Gullace, who suffered a severe injury in an industrial accident, has announced he will not seek re-election as an independent candidate, or as a member of Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski’s ticket. Ashe-Nadrowski has yet to announce who her running mates will be for Council.
Weimmer was born and raised in Bayonne. In addition to her financial background, she began her career as a paralegal. In her current role at Comerica Bank, Weimmer helps people who have disabilities. She assists their families in all aspects of benefits eligibility, financial and life planning. She also volunteers her time with Hudson County CASA, as a court-appointed advocate for children in the foster care system.
Weimmer joins previously announced, incumbent Council members, Councilman at-Large Juan Perez, Third Ward Councilman Gary La Pelusa and First Ward Councilman Neal Carroll as part of Mayor Davis’ re-election ticket.
Former Bayonne Board of Education Trustee Michael Alonso is the third announced candidate for Mayor.
