Government Reform Thoughts

Rahway Administrator Peter Pelissier, who also serves as head of the city's redevelopment agency, has been ordered to repay $331,000 in pension payments to the state. He retired from both posts but remained as a consultant with the redevelopment agency to the tune of $294,000 over four y ears. He also is a member of the Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority, which services the readership area of The Westfield Leader and The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Times and is considering privatizing the sewerage treatment operation. Given this revelation, we believe Pelissier should resign from the RVSA. In addition, The state's dual office holding ban on legislators should be expanded to disallow a non-elected or elected official from holding two paid government positions.  - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
