  • On Tuesday, November 2, 2010, New Jersey voters went to the polls in special elections in the 5th, 14th and 31st State legislative districts. The one race of note was a special election in the 14th legislative district (Mercer/Middlesex) for the State Senate seat previously held by Bill Baroni who resigned in February to take a position as the Deputy Executive Director at the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey. Former Hamilton Township Council member Republican Thomas Goodwin has held the Senate seat since March, but was defeated by incumbent Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein by a 54% to 46% margin. Greenstein, a lawyer, has been in the General Assembly since 2000 and is chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. She is expected to be sworn in next week and her replacement in the Assembly will be chosen within 35 days.
