JACKSON – Will Councilman Barry Calogero be the next Ocean County politician to receive a position in the county government, or a lucrative appointment to one of the county’s political boards or commission? Emails logs obtained from the county say it’s a strong “yes.”
Emails Show How GOP Chairman Gilmore Manipulates County Government Hiring
According to copies of email logs obtained in a public records request, Ocean County Republican Chairman George Gilmore, who is under FBI investigation for unpaid taxes and questionable loans, sent Ocean County Administrator Carl Block an email on Thursday, July 20th, 2017 with the subject line “Fwd: Barry Calogero Resume.”
Just a few minutes after Administrator Block received a copy of Calogero’s resume from Gilmore in an email, he forwarded it to Ocean County Personnel Director Keith Goetting.
The email logs were obtained by Ocean County Politics in response to an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request seeking email logs for County Administrator Block. This story is the first in a series that will be based on the Block email logs.
