CAPE MAY TRIED TO BLOCK BALLOT QUESTION

The City of Cape May is attempting to stop a non-binding voter referendum on the Nov. 5 ballot on the subject of the city leaving or dissolving the Lower Cape May Regional School District by seeking a preliminary injunction in Superior Court. Cape May’s special counsel Vito Gagliardi Jr. filed a complaint Oct. 15 seeking an order from a Superior Court judge to require Cape May County Clerk Rita Fulginiti to remove the regional school board question from the Nov. 5 ballot and re-issue ballots in Lower Township, West Cape May and Cape May, the three constituents of the regional school district. The complaint claims a sample ballot was created not indicating the voter referendum was non-binding. In addition, Gagliardi claims state law does not allow a board of education to authorize a non-binding referendum
