NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Transit hired or promoted 10 employees connected to Gov. Chris Christie's administration as it hemorrhaged staff needed to operate safely and reliably, according to a report from The Record and NorthJersey.com.
The salary bumps, from $13,000 to as high as $70,000, were for jobs ranging from the agency's chief of staff to planning and procurement positions, the report said.
The agency denies that any Christie administration worker was given special preference over career NJ Transit employees or other qualified candidates for any senior position, according to NorthJersey.com.
