New Jersey: Rockaway Township Councilman, Acting Mayor facing recall efforts

Councilman Victor Palumbo is facing a recall effort over complaints about his vote, including votes against former Mayor Michael Dachisen and Councilman John Quinn taking health benefits. Petitioners would need 724 signatures to get to the ballot.

Acting Mayor Jeremy Jedynak (R) is also facing a recall effort, with one of the leaders being the widow of his immediate predecessor, Mayor Michael Dachisen (R). Dachisen died on August 15 of a heart attack, leading to Jedynak taking over. The issue is claims of hostile behavior. Jednyak is accused of calling a special council meeting the day after the funeral in "an effort to replace the municipal attorney."

Petitioners need about 4564 signatures to get that recall on the ballot.
