ORANGE, NJ - After a contentious and often heated campaign, today (5/10/16) the residents get their say as they go to the polls to elect a mayor and members to the Orange City Council.

The central figures on the ballot are incumbent Mayor Dwayne Warren and his two challengers, East Ward Councilman Kerry Coley and Janice Morrell, a former Zoning Board Chairwoman.

This mayoral trio has met on several occasions to debate the virtues of their candidacy amid swirling accusations ranging from mismanagement to election sign tampering and just about everything in between. To say this election was acrimonious and bitter is an understatement.
