Entire council of small N.J. town resigns

MYFOXNY.COM -

All six borough council members in Farmingdale, N.J., have resigned. Farmingdale is a small borough of only about 1,600 people.

Marie Donovan's husband was one of them. She told Fox 5 that the members just could work with the mayor anymore.

She says her husband, who was unavailable to speak with Fox 5, couldn't take all the screaming matches he had with the mayor.

Mayor Jay Morgan is the only one still serving this small borough, although we were told he had no comment about what is going on.

Even the borough clerk and the code enforcement officer resigned, leaving many who live here to wonder how their town will conduct business.

Gov. Chris Christie's office called this a rare and unusual situation. The governor can appoint new borough council members within 30 days of their resignations.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
