A few years ago “Mr. Mendacity” Scharfenberger did not admit to holding two government jobs. An Asbury Park Press editorial stated then that it was a case of “mendacity ” and that he should resign from one of the jobs. He never did.

Today, an APP article (“Curley Loses GOP Backing for Race” 2/7/18 ) notes that Middletown’s Mayor Scharfenberger is now a county freeholder. He has THREE government jobs at the moment!

Gov. Christie said that only one such post was allowed, but he did not enforce it for those within his own party, including his head cheerleader Scharfenberger. Will Mayor Scharfenberger finally do the right thing and give up two of his jobs?

Gov Murphy, who is trying for transparency in government, should look into this years-long travesty and clarify the policy on government jobs.
