Ethics Board fines 5 Old Bridge officials, including ex-Ethics Board member
 

Issue Detail:

 
On January 6, 2012, the Old Bridge Township (Middlesex County) Ethics Board fined five Township officials $100 each for failure to file Financial Disclosure Statements that were due on or before April 30, 2011. The statements are designed to inform the public of certain financial information--including sources of officials\' income--so that conflicts of interest can be more readily detected. The five officials fined are: Rabbi Rossi Kanelsky: Municipal Ethics Board Marilyn Liberatore: Fire District #1 Donna Ortiz: Rent Stabilization Board Robin Rosen: Economic Development Corporation Donna Thibault: Unknown The fines were a result of the New Jersey Libertarian Party Open Government Advocacy Project\'s June 17, 2011 complaint against twenty (20) Old Bridge Officials who failed to file their financial statements. My complaint, the penalty letters, Ethics Board meeting minutes and other pertinent documents are on-line here: I have two comments/questions regarding the Ethics Board\'s actions: 1. I am unclear as to why Donna Thibault was fined, as she was not listed in the complaint that I filed. 2. My complaint was against twenty officials, yet only five were fined. Among those who were included in my complaint but were not fined was Ethics Board Attorney Brian Whitehead--who signed the penalty letters against the the five officials who were fined. I am unclear as to what criteria was used to determine which five of the twenty officials complained should be fined. John Paff, Chairman New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project paff@pobox.com January 9, 2012
