Newsflash

So, is Joe Santiago the first and only member of the Palmer administration to not have a bond fide, full time Trenton residence?

Or has this disregard for the city's ordinance been a long-standing policy?

Business Administrator Jane Feigenbaum owns a house in the Mill Hill neighborhood and has registered to vote in Trenton.  Still, neighbors say she seldom visits the house more than two or three times a week.  The local riff-raff are seen hanging out on her front porch more often than she is seen visiting; the yard gets terribly overgrown each summer; and the building is in need of some basic maintenance.

Assistant Business Administrator Dennis Gonzalez also used to live in Mill Hill.  But he sold that house and moved his family to the suburbs when he left City Hall to work for the ill-fated Trenton Economic Development Corporation.  With the collapse of that entity, Gonzalez came back to the Palmer Administration but didn't move back inot the city to do so.  It wasn't until a civic group started to question his residencey that Gonzalez purchased a home in the city.

Irv Bradley, a croney of Santiago's from the Newark Police Department, was recently appointed as Communications Director (the radio room).  The Rahway resident allegedly has a deposit on a high-rise apartment near City Hall, but he was appointed in violation of basic NJ Department of Personnel Civil Service rules.

A former Communications Director  allegedly lived in Trenton, but never gave up his home in Jackson Township, NJ.

"Acting Fire Director" Rich Laird doesn't live in Trenton either.

And if this isn't enough evidence of the Palmer attitude towards the City's residency law, what about the attorney approached to be appointed head municipal judge?

As the story goes, when the subject was brought up, she reiminded the Palmer representative that she wasn't a city resident.  "There are ways around that," she was told.

History shows the Mayor doesn't care about the very law's he swore to uphold.
