Campos will challenge his election defeat

Dawn Zimmer is now the official winner of Hoboken's Fourth Ward City Council runoff, having been certified earlier today, officials said.

But the man she defeated, incumbent Councilman Christopher Campos, said he will ask for a recount tomorrow.

City Clerk James Farina said he certified Zimmer as the winner by six votes, with 892 votes to incumbent Councilman Chris Campos’ 886 votes, including absentee and provisional ballots.

Campos said he also plans to question the validity of some absentee ballots, which tipped the vote in Zimmer’s favor.

Farina also certified Peter Cunningham as the winner of the Fifth Ward seat on Friday, with 636 votes to Peter “Perry“ Belfiore’s 524 votes. Councilman Angelo “Nino” Giacchi won the Sixth Ward, 441 to 325 over Thomas Foley.

The new council members will be sworn July 1 at noon at City Hall.
