This pension was based on a yearly salary of $74,040. If the pension were for his service on the Township Committee it would be based on $22,000 alone. The only way it could be based on such a high salary is if the calculation includes his senate salary as well. Senator Singer remains a Senator while getting a pension for a job that he has officially retired from. And this is a republican that supposedly is standing behind Governor Christie in support of pension reform for public employees.
