Cherry Hill's chief prosecutor has resigned his post with the township, the mayor's office announced yesterday.
Matthew E. Segal offered Friday to give up his $15,000-a-year part-time job after meeting with Mayor Susan Bass Levin and the township solicitor, Francine Axelrad, a mayoral aide said. The resignation became effective immediately.
According to a press release announcing the change, Segal, who is also a Camden County freeholder and runs a one-man law practice in Cherry Hill, will be replaced by Elliot S. Stomel, an assistant prosecutor in Cherry Hill since 1981. Stomel also serves as president of the Camden County Municipal Prosecutors Association.
