Share/Save/Bookmark

TRENTON, New Jersey — The mayor-elect in New Jersey's capital city is pledging to run "the most ethical administration in the city's history."

Trenton voters elected former city public works director Eric Jackson in a runoff Tuesday less than a month after the last elected mayor in the city was sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison for a corruption conviction.

The 52-year-old Jackson defeated Paul Perez by a margin of 55 percent to 44 percent.

He is to be sworn in at the helm of the government in the city of 84,000 on July 1.
