Dunn, the blunt, often irascible former Mayor of Elizabeth, N.J., who was a major figure in the city's politics over four decades, died Wednesday at his home in the city. He was 76 years old. ... Mr. Dunn, a maverick Democrat and former union official, had served as mayor of the largely working-class city for 28 years, but he was defeated in his own party's primary in June 1992. Still, his tenure earned him the distinction as the nation's longest-serving mayor of a city of more than 100,000 people."
