Carteret CFO Takes 6th Public Job

moneyCARTERET – Patrick DeBlasio, who has a full-time job as the borough’s chief financial officer, was hired for a sixth public job this week, according to an Asbury Park Press report.

DeBlasio will receive $40,000 as Highlands’ chief financial officer, beginning in May when the current job holder retires. He will not have to work a set number of hours or show up at the borough’s municipal offices, according to Highlands Administrator Tim Hill. DeBlasio also reportedly wants Highlands to hire a part-time assistant for him.

Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan questioned whether anyone would have enough time to perform six jobs effectively, and the council vote was split 3-2 in favor of hiring DeBlasio for the new position.

Last year, DeBlasio earned $244,606, according to a USA Today report – not quite twice as much as the state treasurer, who earned $141,000.

He made:

  • $126,896 as Carteret’s CFO
  • $8,000 as Carteret schools treasurer of school monies
  • $29,774, Highlands tax collector
  • $39,996, Keansburg chief financial officer
  • $39,940, North Plainfield chief financial officer
