Incumbent Democrat Matt Scott has earned a return to the Township Committee.
Scott fended off a challenge from Republican candidate Joe Buonavolonta in his re-election bid for another three-year term on the Township Committee.
“I first want to thank Joe for running and congratulate him on a good showing. Cranbury is lucky to have him as a resident and hopefully he will continue to contribute his time and energies to our town,” Scott said.
“Second, I want to thank all that voted and especially to those that voted for me. I am humbled and grateful for their support. I look forward to continuing the good work that we have done on the Township Committee for the past six years.”
The Middlesex County Clerk’s Office Election certified election results on Nov. 22.
Scott earned 688 votes over Buonavolonta, who garnered 576 votes. There were three write-in votes.
“In the next three years, I plan on continuing to make our town a more inclusive and fun place to live,” Scott added. “Specifically, I hope to encourage more local activities and construction of more infrastructure to make Cranbury an even more great place to call home.”
The makeup of the Township Committee will remain all Democrat with Mayor Mike Ferrante, Deputy Mayor Eman El-Badawi, Scott, Committeewoman Barbara Rogers, and Committeewoman Lisa Knierim.
