Not Only Do We Have Memories, We Can Recall

Get this: COAH says there was no particular rush to pass that ordinance. The "mystery" developers had dropped their petition. Aberdeen Township wasn't even on the agenda for COAH's 21 April meeting. (Hat Tip+ to Aberdeener for his fine follow up.)

The New Jersey Constitution, Article I.2(b) says we can petition to remove the bums:

The people reserve unto themselves the power to recall, after at least one year of service, any elected official in this State or representing this State in the United States Congress. The Legislature shall enact laws to provide for such recall elections. Any such laws shall include a provision that a recall election shall be held upon petition of at least 25% of the registered voters in the electoral district of the official sought to be recalled.
