News Bulletins

We applaud the U.S. Attorney and the NJ Attorney General for vigorously indicting and prosecuting the officials and public employees stealing and committing other crimes. Suddenly, several officials and employees are resigning abruptly. As we understand it, state law reads that if an official or public employee resigns before being indicted, that that individual gets to keep all retirement and other benefits, even if convicted. We think that law should be changed. - See detail and provide your thoughts.
