Transcript

  • 1. The  truth  about  Joe  Simunovich  Joe  Simunovich  Wins.  Cleared  of  false  ethics  charges.    During  Mr.  Simunovich’s  tenure  as  Commissioner  of  the  New  Jersey  Turnpike  Authority  (NJTA),  the  state’s  Ethics  Commission  conducted  an  investigation  on  the  approval  of  nine  contracts  or  change  orders  for  a  contractor  to  the  NJTA.  Mr.  Simunovich  had  a  longstanding  personal  relationship  with  the  vendor.  All  nine  votes  for  work  to  be  performed  by  the  contractor  were  unanimous  by  the  Board  of  Trustees  for  the  New  Jersey  Turnpike  Authority.  No  ethics  charges  were  ever  lodged  against  Mr.  Simunovich  and  it  was  the  New  Jersey’s  Ethics  Commission’s  position  that  Mr.  Simunovich’s  participation  in  the  votes  was  not  influenced  by  his  relationship  with  the  contractor.    The  Ethics  Commission  did,  however,  say  Mr.  Simunovich  should  have  recused  himself  from  voting  on  the  contracts.  Mr.  Simunovich  and  the  Ethics  Commission  entered  into  a  complete  and  final  resolution  of  the  matter  raised  by  the  investigation.  The  consent  order/settlement  was  not  intended  to  constitute  a  finding  or  admission  of  guilt  or  liability  on  the  part  of  Mr.  Simunovich.
