State Sen. Anthony Bucco slammed Gov. Phil Murphy over the hiring of a new, more expensive chef at Drumthwacket.

“That’s hard to swallow, spending that kind of money on a cook. It’s a $40,000 raise over the cook he replaced, and it’s completely unnecessary,” Bucco said. “Murphy already saddled taxpayers with almost $900,000 in repairs to Drumthwacket. New Jersey families deserve better treatment from Trenton.”

Cesare De Chillies is the new chef at Drumthwacket, and he’s set to be paid $110,000 per year, according to an NJ Advanced media report.

“The governor doesn’t get it. People in New Jersey are struggling, but Murphy just keeps spending money that we don’t have,” Bucco said.
