Hoboken Mayor resignation letter

July 31, 2009 8:29:59 AM PDT
Embattled Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarono submitted the following resignation letter.Caommarano's letter reads:

I hereby resign my position as Mayor of the City of Hoboken, effective 12:00 noon on this date.

It has been my hope and expectation that I could remain in office and perform my official duties until I had the opportunity to resolve the legal charges against me in court. Regrettably, it has turned out that the controversy surrounding the charges against me has become a distraction to me and an impediment to the functioning of Hoboken government. This controversy has also been a terrible burden on my family. Accordingly it is in the best interest of the City and all concerned for me to resign.

I apologize to the residents of Hoboken for the disruption and disappointment this has caused. However I would like to reiterate that I am innocent of any criminal charges and I intend to fight the allegations against me.

Yours very truly,

Peter J. Cammarano III
Mayor
