Thompson Slams Atlantic City’s Car Buy, Will Introduce Bill Banning City-Issued Vehicles for Part-Timers

Please Share:

Senator Sam Thompson, R-12, issued the following response to media reports of Atlantic City spending more than $65,000 to buy cars for three council members against the advice of the city’s state fiscal monitors:

“Atlantic City Council’s brazen abuse of tax dollars to buy cars for part-time elected officials — in these economic times and as the city faces rising obligatory expenses — reflects why it is one of the few municipalities in New Jersey where each financial move must be monitored by state supervisors. After all, these are locally elected officials whose public duties, I would assume, rarely take them out of town.

Statement from Sen. Thompson on DePascale v. State of NJ

Senator Sam Thompson (R-12) issued the following statement in response to the ruling issued by the New Jersey Supreme Court in the case of DePascale v. State of New Jersey:

“Today’s ruling is another example of a liberal Supreme Court that would rather rewrite our laws and constitution than read them for what they obviously say. Quite simply, salary is salary and benefits are benefits. Our constitution only protects the salaries of judges, and nothing else. It is obvious that some judges on our Supreme Court either don’t understand plain English or they just don’t care.

“The pension and benefit reforms that were approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the Governor are meant to apply to all public employees. We cannot allow judges to treat themselves as a protected class of public employee that is immune from necessary reforms that apply to everyone else.
