Senator Joseph Cryan, who said he would outlaw abortion except when pregnancy results from incest, rape, or the life of the woman is endangered, is being challenged by 3-term Roselle school board commissioner Angela Alvey-Wimbush, a pro-choice Democratic woman, who spent more than two decades as a classroom teacher.

Alvey-Wimbush’, a pro-choice’s Column B Democratic running mates for Assembly are Charles Mitchell and Mrylene Thelot, and all three legislative contenders are hoping to represent Elizabeth, Union, Kenilworth and Roselle.
