ABSTRACT
Presents a cautionary tale about what can happen when town officials get too cozy with developers in Marlboro, New Jersey. Emphasis on the informal system known as pay-to-play, under which elected officials collect legal campaign contributions from the very developers they are supposed to scrutinize; Controversy over the Marlboro Township; Allegation addressed by federal authorities that township officials have been taking payoffs from at least one developer since 1997 in exchange for helping him win project approvals.
