A runoff election will be needed to determine Trenton’s next mayor. None of the six candidates secured at least 50 percent of the vote. The top two vote-getters Eric Jackson and Paul Perez will face-off in a June 10 contest. The winner will succeed Tony Mack, who was convicted on corruption charges in February.
