Pennsauken Assemblyman will retire in response to redistricting

    Movement in New Jersey’s Legislative District has prompted a retirement announcement from Jack Conners. Conners is an assemblyman in Pennsauken, historically part of the state’s 7th Legislative District.

    But, as the Burlington County Times reports, redistricting has shifted the map, putting Pennsauken in the Camden County-dominated 6th District, which is already represented by three democrats.

    Conners, an army vet himself, is known in his district as a champion for military vets and their families, and has been on the Assembly since 1998. He says he won’t run for re-election against the three incumbents.
