North Jersey Finance Officer Has 6 Public Jobs
A municipal finance officer and tax collector in northern New Jersey has just landed his sixth public job.
The Asbury Park Press reports that the Highlands borough council agreed Wednesday to pay Patrick DeBlasio $40,000 annually for a part-time job balancing the borough’s books.
The newspaper says DeBlasio already collects about $250,000 a year for his five other public jobs.
He is the full-time chief financial officer for Carteret. He also holds part-time jobs in Keansburg, North Plainfield, the Carteret school district and in Highlands, where he is tax collector.
Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan opposed the decision to give DeBlasio another part-time job. He questioned whether DeBlasio would be able to give sufficient attention to the new job. But he was outvoted.
