Burlington Prosecutor defers investigation info on Wrightstown Mayor. Seeks Mayor’s explanation of “various discrepancies.”

In a November 25, 2014 letter, Burlington County Assistant Prosecutor Thaddeus E. Drummond said his office will defer its decision on whether to investigate an ethics violation committed by Wrightstown Mayor Thomas Harper until after the Mayor exhausts his rights to appeal.  Background on the ethics matter out of which the violation arose is on-line here.

Drummond did, however, ask Thomas Neff, Chairman of the state agency that issued the ethics violation, to advise him of “any explanation offered by Mayor Harper regarding various discrepancies among his 2010 to 2014 final disclosure statements.”
