BAYONNE COUNCIL CANDIDATES: WE WILL ALL PAY FOR MAYOR DAVIS’ DISGUSTING ACTIONS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 19, 2018

BAYONNE – Following an explosive piece in the Jersey Journal detailing the significant financial damage Mayor Jimmy Davis’ alleged sexual harassment of a subordinate could have on city residents, Bayonne candidates for Council Sharma Montgomery and Melissa Enriquez-Rada today released the following statement.

 

“The text messages our Mayor sent to the woman who worked for him are appalling and far from what we would consider ‘playful banter’, as Mayor Davis put it.  Initially, he denied sending them, then he was hacked and now he says it’s just playful banter between friends. Except, the woman wasn’t just a friend, she was his employee.  This makes the ‘playful banter’ a huge liability for the Bayonne taxpayer.

 

In 2018, a retired police captain and current mayor of a large city should have better judgment and care more about how his poor decisions might affect the taxpayers.  Time and time again, we are seeing men in positions of power finally be held accountable for their bad behavior.  Now his accuser is suing him AND the city, which means that every taxpayer in Bayonne is on the hook for his disgusting actions.

This matter is not just about lewd and embarrassing behavior, this is about Jimmy Davis using our taxpayer money to fund his defense against poor judgment in his personal life. Like Mr. Torres said yesterday, ‘if the evidence provided stands in litigation, then that piggy bank looks more like it will be a Fort Knox settlement, courtesy of the Peninsula City taxpayers’.  And, if that happens, we will all pay for Mayor Davis’ disgusting actions.”
