UNION CITY, N.J. (AP) — Officials have decided to name a new cultural center after a New Jersey mayor who was convicted of federal racketeering charges.

The William V. Musto Cultural Center in Union City will be dedicated on June 11. The center used to be the 15th Street Free Public Library.

Musto was a state lawmaker who served as mayor from 1962 to 1970 and 1974 to 1982. That's when he was convicted of helping mobsters and contractors siphon federal funds from an expansion project at two high schools.

And, as Bill Clinton would say, "He had to do it to improve the high
