New Jersey: Mahwah mayor recall started

Petitions have been approved for the recall of Mayor William Laforet. Petitioners need 4163 signatures (25% of registereds) in 160 days. The rules say that gatherers have to be township residents, but that is likely to be found unconstitutional if challenged.

The recall is over give reasons, including an attempt to fire the Public Works Director over porn on a departmental computer (which failed), misusing police communication channels and a $500,000 in overtime expenditures for the police budget without notifying the council.

The country appears to have had only the Ridgefield recall over the last 28 years.
