Legacy

Evelyn Williams skipped Monday’s legislative session. That means she missed half the sessions during her tenure as an Assemblywoman from the 28th district. She sponsored no legislation, used her only speech on the Assembly floor to thank a former legislator removed from office following a criminal conviction, and was arrested for shoplifting just seven days after taking office. Two days later, she was fired from her Essex County Corrections job, allegedly for faking her retirement to collect a salary and a pension. Still, she will collect about $4,083 before taxes for her one day at work in the Legislature — about $4,023 more than the amount she tried to save switching price stickers on a sheet and comforter set at the Variety Fair in Irvington.
