Legislative District 6

NJ Spotlight | October 8, 2019 | Elections 2019

NJ Spotlight is sharing election coverage with NJTV News, our sister organization, which invited all candidates to complete a brief survey and record a video message; we have included those for all the candidates who responded.

Situated along the Delaware River, the 6th District encompasses 15 communities straddling Burlington and Camden counties: Berlin Township, Cherry Hill, Collingswood, Gibbsboro, Haddon, Haddonfield, Hi-Nella, Maple Shade, Merchantville, Oaklyn, Pennsauken, Somerdale, Stratford, Tavistock and Voorhees.

This has been a solidly Democratic district, with 45% registering with the blue party and 17% registering as Republicans. Most of the rest are not affiliated with any party.

Having fended off a primary challenge, the incumbent Democrats — Assembly members Louis D. Greenwald, the majority leader who lives in Voorhees, and Pamela Lampitt of Cherry Hill — are now facing two Republicans. The GOP candidates are John Papeika of Cherry Hill and Cynthia Plucinski of Haddonfield.
