New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine will look for a new state monitor for the city of Camden after Judge Theodore Z. Davis last week announced he will stop serving as the city's chief operating officer on Aug. 31.
Davis did not offer a reason for his resignation. Camden has been under state oversight since 2002, with the city's COO managing the municipality on behalf of New Jersey. The COO has the ability to veto the mayor and the City Council.
