Thomas E. Seeley\'s 2010 letter from the PERS pension system
 

Issue Detail:

 
Of possible interest to Cumberland County residents, particularly those in Greenwich, Lawrence and Commercial, is the August 23, 2010 letter from Division of Pensions and Benefits that I recently received in response to an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request. That correspondence is on-line here. It shows that Lawrence Township, after it was required to by statute, stopped reporting Mr. Seeley\'s salary as Township Solicitor to the Division of Pensions and Benefits on December 31, 2007. Yet, the letter goes on to say that Lawrence then appointed Mr. Seeley as \"Property Administrator\" and began, in 2008, reporting Mr. Seeley\'s salary as \"Property Administrator\" to the Division of Pensions and Benefits. The Division found that \"that the position of \'Property Administrator\' is a position designed to disguise [Seeley\'s] true relationship, thereby facilitating [his] continued membership in the PERS\" pension system. Accordingly, the Division ruled that Mr. Seeley was \"not eligible to continue enrollment on the basis of this position engagement by Lawrence Township for the years 2008 and following.\" The letter shows that Mr. Seeley received similar treatment in Commercial Township, where he was also paid, starting in 2008, as a \"Property Manager.\" The Division similar ruled that Mr. Seeley, as \"Property Manager\" wasn\'t eligible to participate in the PERS pension for the years of 2008 and following. Further, the Division disqualified $33,000 that Mr. Seeley had received for acting as Commercial\'s \"Tax Lien Manager\" in 2007 from his pension calculation.
