Trenton mayor's financial judgement under fire

Utility company Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) reportedly shut off the electricity in Trenton Mayor Tony Mack's home yesterday, prompting residents and local officials

TRENTON - Utility company Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) reportedly shut off the electricity in Trenton Mayor Tony Mack's home yesterday, prompting residents and local officials to question his financial responsibility. Mack reportedly owes the utility company $15,000 in electric and gas payments. Sources say the power has been turned back on. However, some elected officials say they now doubt whether Mack can handle the city's budget. At least $12,000 have already been allocated for next week's "National Night Out" event. The mayor's home and City Hall offices were recently raided by the FBI. Mack is accused of bribery, extortion and money laundering.Trenton Mayor Tony Mack back on the jobFBI seeking evidence in probe against Trenton mayor
