SOURCES: Top Hudson Democrat issued summons for alleged hit-and-run of pedestrian



According to law enforcement sources, municipal court summonses have been issued to Jersey City Councilperson-at-Large Amy DeGise related to an alleged hit-and-run of a pedestrian early this morning in the city’s West District.

DeGise did not respond to a phone call and text message seeking comment for this HudPost story. Jersey City Spokesperson Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione did not respond to an email asking if the city could confirm or deny that DeGise was issued summonses.

Details regarding the alleged hit-and-run remain scarce, but sources say 1) CCTV video footage was used by detectives to identify the vehicle involved and 2) the vehicle was supposedly registered to DeGise and it appeared the councilperson was the vehicle’s operator (based on that knowledge). The pedestrian that was struck suffered some injuries, but was not transported to a hospital, per sources.

    Ward B Councilman Ramchal had to resign because of a DUI. Senator Sandra Cunningham was out through the ringer for a DUI. But, watch as Council Woman Amy Degise gets away with murder because her father’s selection of newly appointed Judge Scalia who also owns a pizzeria on Central.
    As an elected official and a teacher this is another example of public school educator breaking the law. A role model…for whom?

    This is a terrible thing this councilwoman has done. She clearly knew she hit something and didn’t stop. On the other hand these morons on bikes that don’t stop at lights or stop signs are just looking to get hit. I drive in the city and I can’t tell you how many times I have almost hit a biker. These bikers need to be held accountable for their reckless behavior as well. You go through a red light like this idiot did and what do you think is going to happen.
