"Planning aide" caught in NJ snare

Amongst the 44 NJ politicians, rabbis, and body parts traffickers arrested Thursday was a Jersey City official described as a planning aide. According to PolitickerNJ.com:

A planning aide with the city of Jersey City, Catrillo is charged with accepting $5,000 in exchange for the promised delivery of project approvals for a federal cooperating witness, who posed as a developer.

It is one more piece of evidence that the planning and zoning world is a bit more high-powered than might first seem obvious on your local access or government affairs channel.

Hey, isn't being partially responsible for development of the "Gold Coast" worth a little something... you know... for the effort?
