Bencivengo admits misusing mayormobile

  • Embattled Hamilton Mayor John Bencivengo has admitted to improperly using his township car, a township official said last week.

  • The mayor, who had taken the day off, used his car to drive an acquaintance’s child to school Friday morning, according to sources. The car, a black Chevy SUV, is supposed to be used by the mayor for township business.
  • The Trentonian is not identifying the family to protect the child’s identity.
  • Township Business Administrator John Ricci said township vehicles should only be used for township business, and only township employees are allowed in the vehicles. He said the township’s employee handbook spells those rules out clearly.
  • He said he had spoken to Bencivengo about the car ride, and the mayor admitted it was a mistake and said he would not do it again.
  • “He and other employees should know it is only for township business,” Ricci said.
