Democratic candidates will not face opposition during the general election for Hightstown public offices.
Hightstown Borough Democratic party voters endorsed Borough Councilwoman Susan Bluth to run for mayor, based on unofficial primary election results.
Voters also endorsed incumbent Borough Councilman Joshua Jackson and newcomer Todd Frantz to seek the two open seats on the Hightstown Borough Council in the Democratic Party primary on June 7.
No one filed to seek the Republican Party nomination for mayor or the two council seats available.
Bluth, who serves as council president, received 242 votes. Mayor Lawrence Quattrone is not seeking re-election.
Jackson received 246 votes and Frantz earned 237 votes. Borough Councilman Steve Misiura is not seeking another term.
Bluth has lived in the borough for 17 years. She is a certified paralegal who works primarily on family law and civil litigation matters.
She said she works well with her colleagues on the council, and they have chosen her to lead the council in 2021 and 2022.
Jackson is a lifelong resident of Hightstown. He works at The Peddie School golf course.
He said there are several projects under way that he would like to see through to completion including the redevelopment of the former rug mill to the proposed new Borough Hall.
The new municipal building will replace the former one that was damaged by flooding several years ago.
Frantz is a 21-year resident of Hightstown. He is a senior project manager for an environmental consulting and engineering firm.
Frantz has served on the Hightstown Borough Environmental Commission for six years, including the past two years as chairman.
