NJ Councilwoman Rescinds Resignation Over ‘Christmas’ Tree Lighting Ceremony


ROSELLE PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey city council member has rescinded her resignation after she said she was stepping down following a city council decision to add the word “Christmas” to the name of its tree-lighting ceremony.

Earlier this week, the Roselle Park City Council voted 4 to 2 to change the name of their “Tree Lighting Ceremony” to “Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.”

Councilwoman Charlene Storey, a Democrat, left the meeting and later sent in a letter of resignation, WCBS 880’s Stephanie Colombini reported.
