New Jersey: Mahwah Mayor facing new recall effort

Mayor Willaim Laforet is facing another recall effort following his opposition to an ordinance which bans non-New Jersey residents from using township parks, as well as an anti-Eruv ordinance. The law is allegedly aimed at Orthodox Jews from Rockland County in NY.  The state has filed civil rights suits against the town, and the Town Council effectively rescinded the ordinance.

Petitioners need 4150 signatures to get on the ballot.
