Pay-to-Play Change Vetoed in Bergen County, NJ
An ordinance passed last week to alter Bergen County, New Jersey’s pay-to-play law was vetoed by County Executive Kathleen A. Donovan on Friday.
The Board of Chosen Freeholders had voted to remove much of the current ordinance’s disclosure requirements, requiring reporting only of contributions made to candidates for county offices. The existing pay-to-play ordinance, just passed in December of 2011, requires contractors report their contributions to candidates on the municipal, county, state, and federal level.
