NJ mayor says he'll resign from police force
(AP) - The mayor of a South Jersey seashoreresort town says he will resign from the police force so he cancontinue in office.
Earlier Wednesday, a Superior Court judge gave Gary DeMarzo ofWildwood 24 hours to pick one of the jobs.
The order by Judge Valerie Armstrong followed a February appealscourt ruling that DeMarzo could not hold both jobs.
The court cited possible conflicts of interest.
DeMarzo has been on an unpaid leave of absence from the policeforce since winning a seat as a city commissioner in May 2007.
In December, his fellow commissioners selected him to be mayor.
