Christie’s campaign security director gets Parole Board slot

 

Former state police administrator Allen Delvento was hit on his pension and his last job, director of Christie’s campaign security, before being appointed to the State Parole Board.

His six-year appointment pays $116,000 per year, in addition to a $90,000 state police pension.

“Do believe that the governor should vilify people who make over $200,000 (on public payroll)?” State Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-Wood-Ridge) asked.

State Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Middletown) intervened. “He didn’t invent the pension system. You want to talk about pension abuses, lets pass the governor’s reforms.”

Still Delvento answered, “In my particular case it was a mandatory retirement. I think it’s fair in this situation, and in the state police (with mandatory retirement).”
