Residents are calling for Ridgewood to investigate anonymous emails that caused a village council candidate to quit his job, NorthJersey.com reported.
According to the report, several people have asked the council to look into the emails, which were sent last month to the Staten Island Advance, where candidate Michael Sedon works.
The emails reportedly suggested that there was a conflict of interest if Sedon continued to work as a reporter there and run for a seat on the council. Even though the paper’s legal team determined there was no conflict, Sedon tendered his resignation, the report said.
Sedon has filed reports with the Ridgewood PD and the state Election Law Enforcement Commission to look into the emails, the report said.
When several residents suggested the council allocate funds to look into it as well, village officials said they are unsure how they could investigate, but are looking into possibilities, it said.
Sedon, James Albano, and Susan Knudsen are running for two seats on the council in next month’s election.
