Scotch Plains Mayor's Resignation Now Official

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – When Scotch Plains Mayor Nancy Malool closed the door on her office for the last time on Friday, she did so with mixed feelings. While she had informed the Council last month of her intention to resign, it was not official until Friday, as she was taking up her new position with the State of New Jersey as of Monday morning.
“I do regret not being able to finish out my term,” said Nancy Malool. “I really enjoyed my 10 years as a council member and my three and a half years as mayor. I must admit I feel a bit guilty leaving at this time, especially as the town currently does not have a City Manager. However, this position was a perfect fit for me and the rules state that it is a conflict of interest for me to have this job and hold office.”
“Of course, the first day of anything is taken up with paperwork and finding your way around. I’m really looking forward to getting into the actual work part of my new job.”
While she will in the short term be spending most of her time in Trenton, Nancy is looking forward to the future as a private citizen, and plans to make the most of her weekends with her family in Scotch Plains.
