  1. I am surprised you did not ask how many sick day Prieto accrues as a three position public employee. I am certain you cannot have more than one insurance policy in effect as a public official.( holding more than one public job) However I am not certain whether or not he can accrue sick days from each of his three paid jobs in Guttenberg Secaucus and as the Assemblyman. You should have asked this question as it is pertinent to the subject you’re speaking of and if not; because you knew the answer ,you should have stated such. That an elected official in this day and age would accept a job as a consultant for a company that either donates money to his campaign or that he would have to oversee a bill on is appalling. Therefore it is such a pertinent question to ask him about the sick days because if he doesn’t have the ethics within to avoid the appearance of impropriety insofar as a job why would he have that ( ethical morality) as far as sick days are concerned?
