Strumolo Has History of Arrests, Bankruptcy, Website Says


Share post:

Christian Strumolo, one of three candidates for Verona Town Council, has a record of assaults, DUIs and more, according to New Jersey Globe, a website that covers state politics.

According to New Jersey Globe, Strumolo has a 2002 arrest for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and, four years ago, a drunk driving arrest on Bloomfield Avenue in Verona within 1,000 feet of a school.

New Jersey Globe was created in 2018 by David Wildstein, a former mayor of Livingston and a member of Governor Christie’s administration. Wildstein was sentenced to three years’ probation and 500 hours of community service for his role in the so-called Bridgegate Scandal of 2013.

According to New Jersey Globe, Strumolo filed for bankruptcy in 2015, and between 2009 and 2018, the IRS and the New Jersey Division of Taxation filed about $500,000 liens against him.

Many of the points made in the New Jersey Globe article are drawn from files that are part of the public record.

“I have no direct comment on a press piece that is meant to defame any candidate in this election, “ Strumolo said to MyVeronaNJ by email. “A personal attack on me, my family and my reputation is truly disappointing and quite frankly disrespectful. Especially, with this particular author (David Wildstein), we must consider the source. My focus will remain on doing what’s best for Verona and our residents.”
