Mayor fined for ethics violations was fired from his job in neighboring Jersey Shore town

The mayor who was levied almost $25,000 in ethics violation fines has lost his second job.

The Wildwood City Clerk’s office confirmed Wildwood City Commissioners voted 2-1 to fire Christopher Fox from his job as city administrator.

According to The Press of Atlantic City, state law requires the city to pay Fox nearly $25,000 to fire the former administrator because a municipality is required to give a three-month notice of termination or pay his three-month salary. Part of the sum, $7,000, includes unused personal and sick time.

The money almost offsets fines for ethics violations. Fox, who also serves as the mayor for West Wildwood, was recently given seven notices of violations and fined $24,900 by the Local Finance Board, a division of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. Some of the alleged infractions included using his position to have his daughter Nicole Fox appointed as Deputy Office of Emergency Management Coordinator from 2016 through 2018.
