NEWTON, NJ – The mayor of the Town of Newton, Wayne Levante will be facing a resolution “to censure Mayor Wayne Levante” at the special meeting scheduled for Monday, March 5 at 7 p.m.

The public is invited to attend the meeting and there is a portion of the agenda set aside for public comment before the vote on the resolution to censure.

The mayor has been criticized for some of the comments and videos he has posted on his facebook page under the name Mayor at Town of Newton, including a post about the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The facebook page appears to have been renamed, removing Mayor at Town of Newton.  The videos have been removed as well.
