Christie: PVSC security axed after raw materials ‘grow legs’

MANALAPAN – At his town hall today, Gov. Chris Christie said today’s firings at the Passaic Valley Sewerage Authority, reported at PolitickerNJ, were based on a few disconcerting facts.

“We had a head of security,” Christie said, making $130,000 per year, “who never worked in law enforcement.”

He continued: “And they also found that lots of publicly paid-for materialswere growing legs and walking off,” thousands of dollars in raw materials.

“The security folks – we had a dozen of them – never saw it,” Christie said, and so they were fired.

He said a retired major from the state police will be taking over in the interim.
