Voters in one northern New Jersey town are poised to decide whether to let a mayor arrested in last year's massive corruption sting keep his job.

Ridgefield Mayor Anthony Suarez faces a recall vote Tomorrow. He was among 44 people arrested in a federal undercover operation last summer.

Suarez faces bribery and extortion charges for allegedly accepting $10,000 from an informant posing as a crooked developer.

Two other mayors arrested in the sting, Peter Cammarano of Hoboken and Dennis Elwell of Secaucus, stepped down after their arrests.
