Former West Wildwood Mayor Gary DeMarzo, who was just indicted, is continuing to push a recall against his successor, Mayor Ernie Troiano. West Wildwood recently had a recall election, and Troiano previously lost a recall.
In 2009, Troiano lost his seat in a recall election, along with Commissioner Bill Davenport. At the time, DeMarzo was part of the three-member governing body, and supported the recall effort. About a year and a half later, Troiano was reelected to the City Commission with running mates Pete Byron and Tony Leonetti, and was named mayor again.
