Paul Donini is a state-appointed Board of Elections member in Mercer County, N.J.
Mercer County requires its employees to take a pre-employment drug test and physical. Donini has refused to do so on the grounds that he’s not a county employee, and the county has, in turn, withheld his salary and benefits.
The test is a must for all county employees, and the Times of Trenton reports the county expects state-appointed officers to adhere to the requirement. Donini is still a recognized BOE member.
