Josselyn reported no contributions or expenditures to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.[2]

What was at stake?

Andrew Gonzalez was the only incumbent to appear on the ballot even though he resigned from the board on August 21, 2013. His name remained on the ballot because the withdrawal took place after the creation of a final candidates list.[3] Fellow members Eugene Donofrio and Fred Colabella did not seek re-election in 2013.[4]

Allegations of child endangerment

On January 28, 2010, Josselyn was arrested by local police on charges of endangering the welfare of a child. He was accused of taking a 10-year old girl to a remote location without the permission of her parents. A grand jury dismissed these charges in June 2010 after the girl's story was found to be false. The allegations forced Josselyn to take a leave of absence from the local Community Emergency Response Team and not file for re-election to the board.[5]

Racial Demographics, 2010[6]

White 79.6 68.6
Black or African American 4.4 13.7

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
