New Jersey Mayor resigns after indicted for stealing $190,000 from local campaigns

-

A New Jersey mayor indicted this week in the alleged theft of about $190,000 from various local political campaigns has stepped down.

In a statement posted on the Middlesex Borough website, officials said Ronald DiMura informed them Wednesday that he was resigning and that he would formally leave office Thursday. He was due to leave at year’s end after he lost his re-election bid in the November election.

DiMura, 63, is facing numerous counts, including theft and official misconduct. Authorities say he used his position as treasurer for the Middlesex Borough Democratic Campaign Committee and on several campaigns for Middlesex candidates to steal money between January 2013 and June 2019.

DiMura is also accused of using a local charity he runs to launder the money. Authorities allege that between January 2013 and June 2019, DiMura made purported donations to the charity, and money was then sent to his personal and business accounts.
