Paterson Council votes against requesting state of emergency

The Paterson City Council tonight voted against a resolution asking Gov. Chris Christie to delcare a state of emergency in the city.

The resolution, championed by Council President Anthony Davis, failed by a vote of 2-6.

Christie said Monday he didn’t support the measure because the city is mismanaged, in his view, and does not deserve more state aid.
