James Wiley, the former North Bergen Assistant Superintendent for the Department of Public Works who pleaded guilty to second-degree conspiracy to commit official misconduct, had his sentencing postponed until March 1, The Record reported today.


Wiley who was supposed to have been sentenced Friday in Hudson County Superior Court was accused of having city employees perform work around his house and to work on political campaigns and then falsifying their timesheets to be paid by the township, the article reported.

Wiley is banned from public employment, must pay restitution to the township and must serve five to 10 years in state prison according to the plea bargain, the article stated.

Troy Bunero and Francis Longo pleaded not guilty to charges that they allegedly helped Wiley and also had employees work on their own homes as well.

In December, Timothy Grossi, the deputy director of the department was also indicted.

Grossi allegedly ordered Wiley to dispatch employees to work on Hudson County campaign races and also had his employees work on his own home as well.

Scary looking guy. Why is the DPW director the only one getting in trouble though? Someone from the campaigns that they worked on must have known. Shouldn't the campaign at least get fined?

North Bergen director of public works indicted for allegedly ordering employees to work for political campaigns and install his windows while on town time

Read more: Hudson Reporter - North Bergen director of public works indicted for allegedly ordering employees to work for political campaigns and install his windows while on town time


NORTH BERGEN -- Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa announced on Monday that Deputy Director of Public Works Timothy Grossi was indicted by a state grand jury for allegedly ordering employees to work on political campaigns and to perform his household chores along with chores at other homes while they were being paid by the township.


Is fourth person indicted in alleged scheme


Grossi, 72, of Jersey City, is the fourth man to be charged in an ongoing investigation by the Division of Criminal Justice into alleged abuses involving employees of the North Bergen Department of Public Works (DPW) being paid by the township for work unrelated to DPW functions.


On Sept. 11, DPW Superintendent James Wiley pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit official misconduct, admitting he directed DPW employees to perform hundreds of hours of chores at his home and to work on campaigns while being paid by the township.


On Sept. 21, two DPW supervisors were indicted for allegedly directing employees to do personal chores for Wiley and work on campaigns.

As Deputy Director of the Department of Public Works, Grossi was Wiley?s boss. It is alleged that Grossi ordered Wiley to send DPW employees to engage in campaign work on behalf of candidates.


?Four defendants have now been charged in our ongoing corruption investigation, reflecting our steady pursuit of evidence and justice in this troubling case,? said Stephen Taylor, Director of the Division of Criminal Justice. ?We urge any residents or workers with additional information about abuses to contact us confidentially. We are diligently investigating all leads."

Installing windows, photographing campaign signs

Among other things, the indictment says that Grossi directly ordered or had another person order one or more DPW employees to install windows and window air conditioning units at his home, perform gardening work or other personal tasks at the homes of others, pick up or deliver political literature, and take photographs of political signs.

Grossi is charged with one count of official misconduct for allegedly directing subordinate employees to work on campaigns on three occasions, while being paid by the township: (1) Nov. 4, 2008, in connection with a mayoral campaign in Bayonne; (2) May 12, 2009, in connection with a mayoral campaign in Jersey City; and (3) Nov. 2, 2010, in Jersey City, in connection with a campaign for sheriff.

Grossi is charged with the counts of theft and misapplication of government property for his alleged role in the unlawful use of employee services, vehicles, tools and equipment for the election campaigns and personal tasks. In two counts related to tampering with or falsifying records, Grossi is charged in connection with his alleged involvement in the submission of fraudulent timesheets related to his own hours and the hours of subordinate employees, which allegedly covered up the unlawful work done on campaigns and on personal tasks.

?We allege that Grossi, who was one of the top officials in the Department of Public Works, ordered that employees be unlawfully used for personal and political purposes, all at the taxpayers? expense,? said Attorney General Chiesa. ?Local taxpayers should never be asked to foot the bill for this type of corruption, and we are working hard to eliminate it, in North Bergen and throughout New Jersey.?

$133K salary

Grossi currently receives an annual salary of approximately $133,000 from the township.

The indictment is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The indictment was handed up to Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson in Mercer County, who assigned it to Bergen County, where Grossi will be ordered to appear for arraignment at a later date.

North Bergen will hold a town commissioners' meeting this Wednesday, where the public is likely to comment on this matter. Watch this weekend's paper for more coverage of the issue.

It is getting dangerous to be a HCDO supporter/crony.

It is like musical chairs, and if you are the last person standing -- "go directly to JAIL, do not pass GO, do not collect $200 dollars."


Political "Hit Teams" sent to Jersey City to campaign for Healy

The list of people caught holding the bag keeps getting longer and longer. But, unfortunately, there is an even longer list of people still in place who have not been caught (yet).

North Bergen paid DPW workers to help re-elect Healy as JC mayor in 2009. The public's tax dollars at work. Of course none of the politicians involved knew anything about it.
