Golden on Mack mess in Trenton

Prospective Trenton mayoral candidate Jim Golden released a statement on today’s federal indictment of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack.

“It’s clear to me… that Mayor Mack needs to resign immediately,” said Golden, who has announced an exploratory committee to run for mayor.

“He needs to resign because it’s what is best for the city. He needs to resign so we can turn the page, and most importantly, he needs to resign so that the business of city government is not held hostage by his own legal troubles.”

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
