Trenton Mayor’s SUV Towed While He Was In Meeting

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The mayor of New Jersey’s capital city has learned he can’t just park wherever he wants.

Trenton Mayor Tony Mack’s city-issued Ford Expedition was towed after it was parked in a tow-away zone Wednesday night. The vehicle is equipped with mayor license plates and a police light.

Mack told The Trentonian newspaper the vehicle was in a lot across the street from where he was attending a civic association meeting.

The mayor told the newspaper he “shouted” and was angry after discovering the vehicle had been towed.

Mack paid $150 to retrieve the vehicle.

    If I parked in a non-parking space in non-parking space I would definitely get the same treatment. Tony, what is fair for the goose is fair for for the ganger.
