Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino remains in office, with his resignation not effective until October 5, according to a copy of his letter of resignation obtained by the New Jersey Globe.
In a letter to Secretary of State Tahesha Way, Saudino says he took this week off and will return to work next week before his resignation takes effect on Friday.
The letter also calls into question the resignations of several Undersheriffs who had been included in the press release.
Way, on the advice of the Attorney General, had ordered a special election based upon a press release received by her office.
This complicates the already confusing issues regarding Saudino’s departure that requires the reprinting of 40,000 vote-by-mail ballots.
