Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi’s failure to understand election law, instead simply following the instructions of a former Morris Republican chair on county committee petitions, is now a campaign issue. Democratic clerk candidate Shala Gagliardi, like Grossi an attorney, says nearly 1,000 candidates for party office filed deficient petitions because Grossi gave illegal instructions to municipal clerks and candidates. A judge has ruled Grossi incorrectly instructed municipal clerks on a statute that determines how a candidate gets on the ballot, but allowed county committee candidates to stay on the ballot. Gagliardi and Morris Democratic Chair Chip Robinson are calling on the freeholders to conduct an independent audit of Grossi’s office to determine whether state election laws are being followed.
