If you see a tinted black police SUV zoom by you, don’t worry you didn’t just miss The President or even Governor Christie. Mayor Jimmy Davis has purchased a 2014 SUV (shown above). Highly placed City Hall sources have confirmed tha the Mayor had purchased the SUV using funds from a police department account. “The police department fleet is heavily depleted, I don’t know why he chose to use money we needed” said the source. The Bayonne Police Department fleet is at an all time low according to sources in the Bayonne Police Department. City Hall sources believe the Mayor purchased the vehicle through a police department account to avoid public scrutiny and a council approval for funds.
Bayonne Local is awaiting confirmation from the city on the price of the vehicle. These SUVs can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $70,000 without police packages. The Mayor and high level city officials have been seen in the vehicle with lights and sirens blaring all around town. Mayor Davis bragged to political insider Agustin Torres only last month about not driving a city owned vehicle. Mayor Davis could not be reached about why he had a change of heart on the issue.
