Dunn petition for Ward 3 Council seat declared null and void


Opening paragraph of the Dunn
residency decision.
NOTE: Full text of the ruling is now up, see here.

Plainfield Municipal Clerk "AJ" Jalloh issued his ruling in the Jeff Dunn residency matter this morning.

The ruling went in favor of Plainfield Democratic chairman Adrian O. Mapp, and Dunn's petition has been declared null and void.

I intended to copy the complete text below, but am having problems with the PDF file. For now, only the actual decision text is posted -- check back latter for the full document. -- Dan



DECISION

I find that:

1. The evidence presented by the Objector clearly places Jeffery Dunn’s residency outside of the Third Ward within one (1) year of the election; and

2. Jeffery Dunn did not show sufficient evidence to support his contention that he resided in the Third Ward one year prior to the election as required by Section 2.3(a) of the Plainfield Municipal Charter; and

3. I am ruling in favor of the objector, Chairman Adrian O. Mapp, and invalidating the petitions of Jeffery Dunn, and declare him rejected and the nominations null and void.

ABUBAKAR T. JALLOH, R.M.C.
MUNICIPAL CLERK
CITY OF PLAINFIELD, NJ
DATED: APRIL 12, 2016
CC: DAVID L. MINCHELLO, ESQ. (PLAINFIELD CORPORATION COUNSEL)
DANIEL A. WILLIAMSON, ESQ.
ROBERT F. RENAUD, ESQ.


Mr. Dunn has the right of appeal to the courts.
