A New Jersey Republican mayor was removed from office by members of his own party last week after he strongly objected to flying an LGBT “pride” flag outside of city hall.
Last week in Rochelle Park, New Jersey, the township’s four-person council voted to remove Mayor Perrin Mosca over what was reported to have been a “contentious” meeting on the matter last month.
New Jersey’s News 12 reported the meeting occurred on May 24 and ultimately culminated with Mosca being ousted from his position weeks later.
The mayor strongly objected to flying the LGBT flag outside of the town hall throughout the month of June.
According to News 12, Mosca said, “A majority had agreed that as a township we would not put up any flags that singled out one group over another group.”
