Former Cammarano fundraiser now unpaid spokesman for Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis

Former Bayonne City Council candidate Washington Flores questioned the relationship between the city and its spokesman, Jeff Meyer.

Meyer, the former Burlington County Democratic Committee Treasurer, was removed from that position for donating heavily to disgraced former Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, according to PolitickerNJ.

During Flores’ questioning of the council, it was confirmed that Meyers is unpaid and has no contract with the city.

Calls seeking comment from the Bayonne Mayor’s office were not returned.

  1. I want to thank Washington Flores for coming out and speaking about this! Washington obviously did his homework and shared it with the rest of us. Hope something is done about this!

  2. Oh and dude, you guys need two cameras! Great resolution but the panning back and forth is giving me a headache lol 🙂

    • PJ – When you’re right, you’re right. I wanted to slice it, use some transitions, but it wouldn’t have shown exactly how it went down. Plus it invites accusations of deceptive editing. Sorry for the headache lol.

      Shameless promotion – Hudson County View is having a fundraiser, might invest into cameras with what’s collected (no guarantee of two cameras at a meeting though lol), you’re invited to come.

  3. Mr. Flores you represented yourself very well and made a very cogent case. Tip of the hat to you sir.
    That Burlington PAC was nothing but big, ugly trouble.

    Mayor Davis, what the heck are you thinking?

  4. The Burlington County Democratic Committee faces more than $5.8 million in fines from an Election Law Enforcement Commission complaint that accuses the organization of committing scores of campaign finance reporting lapses in 2009 and 2010.
    The 32-page complaint was released by the commission Wednesday and names the county committee as well as its current treasurer, Brent Lee, and two former treasurers, Jule K. Thiessen and Jeff Meyer, as defendants. It charges the committee with about 865 separate violations of election law related to campaign finance reports it filed between April 2009 and January 2010.
    Most of the violations involved the alleged failing of the committee to report the addresses or names of more than 800 campaign workers who were paid between $50 and $250 each to help canvass registered voters as part of get-out-the-vote efforts during the June 2009 primary election and November 2009 general election.

  5. Most of the violations occurred shortly before the August 2009 resignations of Meyer and former Democratic Committee Chairman Rick Perr from their respective offices after a fundraising scandal.
    The scandal involved the Medford-based New Frontier political action committee, which donated more than $19,000 to a North Jersey politician charged in a federal corruption sting.
    Meyer resigned as committee treasurer on Aug. 7, 2009, citing personal reasons, after news reports revealed he was fundraising for North Jersey politician and former Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III.
    Perr resigned Sept. 1 after a Burlington County Times story revealed that he and Meyer had communicated with the PAC’s treasurer, Jack Senechal, advising him and making fundraising requests.
