HOBOKEN -- Parking Authority employee Kleber Vera, who was alleged to have issued parking tickets because a local deli delivery driver did not provide him with free sandwiches, was reinstated on the job Monday after the charges against him were dropped.
Vera had been charged with official misconduct and theft by extortion and had been suspended without pay pending the disposition of the criminal court case against him in Hudson County Superior Court.
“Mr. Vera and his family went through a very difficult and very public process, and now that the charges against him have been dismissed, I welcome him back as an employee of the City of Hoboken,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
“Kleber Vera had a good work record prior to these events, and I’m happy to hear that his charges were dropped,” said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. -Stephen LaMarca
