The Star-Ledger of Newark reports the 63-year-old gave Democrat no reason for his departure after nearly three years in office.

Proctor drew the town council’s ire when he tried to get his wife hired as the town’s health officer soon after taking office.

Proctor later vetoed a nepotism ordinance. But the council overturned Proctor’s veto and slashed the mayor’s salary from $65,000 to $20,809.

Council president Samson Steinman has been named acting mayor.
