Jersey Mayor Charged in Corruption Probe Gets Paid for Unused Vacation

A North Jersey mayor who resigned following his arrest on federal corruption charges has been paid for unused vacation days even though he served only one month in office.

City payroll records, obtained Tuesday by The Jersey Journal, indicate former Hoboken mayor Peter Cammarano received more than
$4,200 for 12 unused vacation days. A city spokesperson said all city employees are entitled to 12 days of paid vacation.

Cammarano was inaugurated on July 1 and resigned on July 31. He received just over $12,900 in salary for his one month as mayor.

The 32-year-old Cammarano is accused of accepting $25,000 in bribes in exchange for help on a purported high-rise building project in the city.

He has said he's innocent and will fight the charges.
