This could have all been avoided if the Morristown officials had taken their cue from those higher up....like Senators, Members of Assembly, Onondaga County Sheriffs.
If you are of age and want to collect pension and salary, you get reelected and then retire at the end of the term and start a new term the next day.
Resigning during the term leaves you out of office and you have to get back in. That's complicated.
When the big guys make this transition, it is seamless and you never read about it.
