LOGAN TOWNSHIP — Frank Minor, the chairman of the South Jersey Black Political Caucus said on Tuesday that the organization is gathering information on all political candidates for the upcoming election seasons as it shapes up to be one of the most pivotal locally and nationally.
Minor, the longtime mayor of Logan Township, said in an announcement that next year voters will select a new U.S. president and a U.S. senator in New Jersey. The following year, New Jersey voters will select a new governor to replace term-limited Gov. Phil Murphy.
“The significance of these two election cycles cannot be emphasized enough,” Minor said in a statement sent to Front Runner New Jersey. “Announced candidates are in the process of presenting their positions on topics that they believe are important to us.”
Former NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney has announced he is running for governor in 2025 along with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, who are both Democrats. No Republicans have yet formally announced a plan to run.
“It is paramount that we begin to educate ourselves about all of the candidates,” Minor said. “We need to evaluate each of them based upon their past actions and proposed plans to address issues that affect our families now, and for future generations.”
He said the South Jersey Black Political Caucus is in the process of gathering information regarding the announced candidates. He said the caucus will provide the community with pertinent facts needed to make informed choices regarding individuals seeking to represent them.
The South Jersey Political Black Caucus advocates for representatives and public policies promoting fairness and inclusion across all levels of government, from local municipalities to the national stage.
“Understanding the importance of knowledgeable leadership, we seek to educate current and aspiring public officials about the unique challenges facing our communities and support the selection, nomination, appointment and election of individuals who share our vision of a more just and equitable society,” Minor said.
In November, Minor won his sixth term as Logan Township mayor with nearly 66% of the vote in the general election. He is a former Congressional candidate who has lived in Logan Township for more than 30 years.
He formerly served on the New Jersey Conference of Mayors Board of Directors and was elected Delegation Floor Whip for the New Jersey delegation at the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
