Congratulations to NJ Democratic Party Chairman John Currie on his new job as the Public Information Officer of the Passaic County Board of Social Services. And congratulations to the Board on finally finding the right man for the job after an exhaustive 14 year search.
Currie is the perfect man for the $92,000 part time job because, as the head of the Passaic County Democrats, the New Jersey Democrats, the Passaic Board of Elections and his partnership in a Chevrolet dealership, “he knows everybody,” BSS director Tony Desimone told The Record.
Currie’s task, which has no set hours, is to get more Passaic County residents to sign up for welfare and food stamps, according to the Record article. He could do that by laying people off from the Chevy dealership and supporting Governor Murphy’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.
If Currie, 71, stays in the job for three years, his state pension will be based on this combined part-time government salaries of $114,000, instead of just the $22K he makes at the Board of Elections. He’ll probably need it, because equity on Chevy dealerships isn’t what it used to be.
