New Jersey: Lopatcong Township Mayoral recall fails
The effort to recall Mayor Tom McKay failed. Petitioners handed in 1274 signatures on May 26, 1104 were valid. They needed 1466. There was actually a debate on the deadline for signatures, but now that's moot. The issue included the mayor's censure over harassment allegations by a town clerk. You can read his discussion of the issues, which focuses on the "machine" opposing him and his supporters.
