Acting mayor takes Trenton, NJ helm amid FBI probe
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The recently appointed business
administrator of New Jersey's capital city has taken the helm at Trenton City
Hall amid an FBI investigation of the mayor.
Staff at City Hall say Sam Hutchinson is now serving as acting mayor, in
place of Tony Mack.
Mack on Thursday sent a letter to the city clerk designating Hutchinson as
acting mayor during any time he is unavailable. The clerk's office was unable to
provide any information about Mack's whereabouts.
FBI agents raided City Hall on Thursday, a day after searching the home of
Mack, his brother and a campaign donor.
Mack's two years in office have been marked by accusations of cronyism and
mismanagement. His only public response to the two days of raids was that he has
not violated the public trust.
