Former Atlantic City Mayor, Don Guardian, says the City of Toms River did him wrong.
After losing the Mayor’s seat to challenger Frank Gilliam, Guardian needed to find work. Luckily, the bow-tied politician was able to land a well-paid Business Admin position for the City of Toms River, NJ.
Guardian’s appointment technically expired after the term of the mayor who appointed him, Mayor Kelaher, expired.
The new Mayor of Toms River, Mo Hill, decided Guardian was no longer needed. Guardian then filed a lawsuit. (see below)
