Union County Employees in Pension System

This started out as a research project on the status of a Roselle borough clerk who, according to a story in the LocalSource, has been on administrative leave since 2012 and, prior to that, had some trouble with OPRA requests.

Going to the New Jersey database of government employees yields this entry:

BLUESTEIN RHONA $79,180 1949 3/1/2005 ROSELLE BOROUGH UNION COUNTY

confirming that Ms. Bluestein is on the Roselle payroll even though she is eligible for retirement and apparently has not done any work for Roselle for four years. Are there other phantom employees in Union County?

Thanks to that state database and some basic Excel manipulation techniques we now have an easy-to-browse listing of public employees in Union County who are in the pension system as of June 30, 2016 (meaning you may not see your part-time elected officials included) in the UC Need to Know sidebar and here:

Happy hunting.
