How many jobs for Mayor Kennedy? Four, and all illegal

Oct. 3rd, Asbury Park Press

Mayor Paul J. Kennedy is in trouble with the state for serving in four paid positions within the municipal government he presides over, including the role of acting borough administrator.

Kennedy also receives public salaries for his roles as the town’s acting personnel director, acting coordinator for the Americans with Disabilities Act and acting insurance administrator, according to Borough Clerk Ileana Vazquez-Gallipoli. First elected mayor in 2006, Kennedy receives no salary for that job. The mayor is seeking a third term this November.

For all these offices, Kennedy, 59, a Republican, will receive an annual salary this year of $50,000 from the taxpayers of Ocean Gate. In addition to his municipal duties, Kennedy is also a full-time employee in Ocean County’s government where he receives about $40,000 as a carpenter in the Building and Grounds Department, according to public records.

Carpetbagging, in other words, is an inevitable and unfortunate consequence of gerrymandering.

From the Philadelpia Inquirer:
What should we make of the post-geographic candidacy of Tom MacArthur, the would-be South Jersey congressman who as recently as December was not just a resident of a North Jersey town, but its mayor?

In a state with sharp north-south divisions – lending that much more resonance to the Reconstruction-rooted term carpetbagger – the distinction between the Third District’s Philadelphia suburbs and MacArthur’s native New York exurbs is no mean one. Read the full post »
