We are very proud of our campaign and those who worked so hard in support of us. Nancy is honored and grateful to be selected as one of the two Democratic candidates for Township Committee in the general election.

We congratulate Malia Herman and look forward to running together to get the vote out in Maplewood in November for a straight Democratic ticket to elect Andy Kim as our next senator and to support Joe Biden in beating Donald Trump.

Jamaine is proud of her service fighting for all of Maplewood and she will continue to do so. ‘You haven’t heard the last of me. I will continue to work for the diverse Maplewood voices that are not always represented in our local government.'”

Herman said in her statement, “I am so humbled and grateful for the trust that my friends, neighbors and the residents of Maplewood have shown me. Thank you to everyone who voted. I am so proud of the issues we have highlighted and discussed throughout this campaign. I look forward to continuing to talk with voters about their priorities as we head into the November election. I also want to thank Mayor Nancy Adams and Deputy Mayor Jamaine Cripe for their continued commitment and service to our community.”
