Trenton mayor's first year memorable, not always positive

TRENTON - Many on the streets of Trenton worry that Mayor Tony Mack's successes of his first year in office are few and far between.

People say that there have been too many broken promises and too much crime. Critics also point out an unreliable water utility now caught up in scandal, as well as confusion over the job status of city employees.

City Council President George Muschal admits that Mack inherited a broken city in financial disarray from the previous administration, but he also says enough is enough. Members of the City Council, including the council president, are expected to testify in front of a grand jury on Friday concerning all of the trouble at the Trenton Water Works.
