Secaucus Deputy Chief John Cerny sends a response to Mayor Gonnelli's comments


“When I originally released my statement to the media, it was not an effort to publicly pressure anyone to promote me to Chief of Police. I had already filed for retirement. I simply felt the need to explain the reason why I was retiring. I wouldn’t have made those comments if they weren’t true and people know that.  Unfortunately, there is much more to this matter than I can disclose right now.”

“As a final thought, I have met a lot of nice people during my career and would just like to say thanks for having the opportunity to serve them.”

Thanks, will talk soon,

John Cerny


  1. John, thank you for being a class act. To bad we have a kid as a Mayor who has an ego bigger than his brain. Hopefully he grows up someday.
