PATERSON, NJ - As a result of a drawing held by the City Clerk's Office on Thursday, Zalal Uddin received the first slot on the ballot in the special election for the 2nd Ward City Council seat.
Sonia Torres got the second spot, Aslon Goow the third, Maidul Islam the fourth and Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman the fifth.
The special election became necessary when Goow filed a successful lawsuit challenging Akhtaruzzaman's eligibility in the May election. A judge ruled last month that Akhtaruzzaman's voter registration was invalid and that he should not have been allowed to run.
