Atlantic County GOP Calls on McGettigan to Refund $107,250 Salary to Pay for Special Election

Atlantic  County Republican Chairman Keith Davis



Atlantic County Clerk Ed McGettigan Botched the  Printing and Mailing of the  Ballots


ATLANTIC CITY NJ (Nov. 4, 2020)--In the face of the biggest election debacle in Atlantic County’s history, Atlantic  County Republican Chairman Keith Davis today called for the immediate resignation  County Clerk Ed McGettigan for misprinting and mailing ballots that will require a special  election in the Third Freeholder District.

“McGettigan is a serial offender when it comes to botching our elections. But this  one is the absolute worst,” said Davis. “And you don’t need to take my word for it. Just  listen to what respected Assignment Judge Julio Mendez said about McGettigan’s  performance: ‘This is a horrendous situation…It does not reflect well on the Clerk of  Atlantic County….Ultimately the buck has to stop somewhere.’”

“I agree. The buck stops with McGettigan when it comes to running elections in  Atlantic County. He printed and mailed 554 faulty ballots affecting a freeholder race,  likely requiring a special election at taxpayers’ expense. When the Court reviewed his  incompetence, McGettigan didn’t even have the guts to show up to the hearing and  offer an apology. He should do the right thing and step down from this position so  someone competent can take over. And he should forgo his $107,250 salary to pay for
the special election caused by his actions so the taxpayers of Atlantic County aren’t  forced to do so.”
