New Jersey announced that Lawrence Durr – a longtime committeeman, mayor and planning board member in Chesterfield Township – pleaded guilty to a criminal charge that he filed fraudulent ethics disclosure forms that failed to disclose his financial relationship to a developer. A state investigation revealed that Durr entered into an undisclosed deal to sell transferrable development rights on a 104-acre farm to the developer, and then used his official positions to advance the developer’s plan to build a major residential and commercial project at another site in the township. In pleading guilty, Durr admitted that from February 2006 through October 2007, he filed false ethics disclosure forms with the Township of Chesterfield that failed to disclose his financial relationship with Renaissance Properties Inc. He is permanently barred from public office or employment. NJ
