â€œAs someone with experience in both business and government, Ben Costanza has the skills to help our administration continue our record of success with economic development,â€ Davis said in a statement.
â€œWith the departure of Joe DeMarco from our office, we wanted to have someone to work with me and Business Administrator/UEZ Coordinator Terrence Malloy on economic and business issues. Ben Costanza has the qualifications to assume these important responsibilities.â€
City spokesman Joe Ryan told Hudson County View Constanza was hired at a salary of $53,996. DeMarco announced earlier this month that he was taking a leave as the B.A. to run Davis’ re-election campaign.
Costanza, who is leaving his company Constanza and Providence Real Estate to work at City Hall. is a lifelong resident of Bayonne who served as the 3rd Ward Councilman from 1986 to 1990.
He was also previously an aide to Mayor Joe Doria.
