Mayor Davis slated to meet next week with State Education Commissioner along with City and School Officials

jimmydavis(BAYONNE, NJ) – Mayor Jimmy Davis is scheduled to meet with State Education Commissioner, David Hespe next Monday, March 16th with other top City and School District officials in Bayonne.

This meeting comes after a dispute that began in late 2014 between the City and School District regarding the Bayonne Board of Education’s management of nearly $12 million in School Development Authority (SDA) grant monies. On January 29, 2015 the Mayor and members of his administration met with Commissioner Hespe in Trenton to discuss the ongoing issue, and requested intervention.

“We want the truth, and we want accountability. That’s what the people of this City deserve, and I am confident that is what they will get as a result of this and potentially additional meetings,” Mayor Davis stated.
