State Dems spent almost $15,000 on car services in 2019

Most payments went to a Teterboro-based chauffeur company

The New Jersey Democratic State Committee has spent nearly $15,000 on car services since the start of the year.

The bulk of the payments went to NY NJ Car Service LLC, a luxury chauffeur service based in Teterboro.

The firm received $13,350 from payments made by the state committee in February, April, May, June and September, according to monthly finance reports submitted to the Federal Elections Commission.

Reached by the New Jersey Globe, the company could not identify the person who booked the rides.

A separate black car company, DC Limo & Car Service, received $2,370 from payments made in April and May.

The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce held its annual Walk to Washington last March, but the state party reported payments to related travel — including to the Chamber, a Marriott hotel in D.C. and Amtrak — in its filings covering April and May.

A spokesman for the state committee declined comment on the story.

The committee spent most heavily on car services in May, when it reported payments of $3,700.19 to the Teterboro-based firm and $1,650 to the D.C.-based limo service.

It spent similar amounts in April. That month, the DSC reported paying $3,639.78 to NY NJ Car Service and $720 to DC Limo & Car Service.

The New Jersey chauffeur company received $2,782.92 from the state committee in February, $1,714.98 in June and $1,512.36 in September.

The party organization also spent $842 on Uber cars through October 31.

Democratic State Chairman John Currie faces a re-election challenge from Essex County Chairman LeRoy Jones.

A New Jersey Globe tally of the race has Jones leading Currie 55-43. The magic number needed to win the race is 49 ½ votes.
