State Sen. Nellie Pou (D-North Haledon) has a new $56,000-a-year job as a part time project assistant to the Paterson Parking Authority, according to a report in the Paterson Times.
Pou, a longtime legislator, was ousted from her post as Paterson business administrator last July when the city’s new mayor, Andre Sayegh, took office.
The new post requires her to work about 20 to 25 hours for week, according to the Paterson Times story.
Sayegh told the newspaper he was not aware of Pou’s specific role at the parking authority.
The senator started her new job yesterday.
Pou was hired in December, around the same time that she faced substantial pressure from Passaic County Democratic Chairman John Currie to oppose a controversial constitutional amendment on legislative redistricting. She was considered one of the swing votes in the State Senate.
