PEAPACK AND GLADSTONE NJ - It appears that the Hector Herrera era in Peapack-Gladstone is over. According to reliable sources, the Peapack-Gladstone Borough Clerk/Adminstrator has accepted a job with the Borough of Bound Brook. Herrera began as the Clerk/Adminstrator for the twin borough in January 2015. 

The news of Herrera's hiring comes in the wake of the suspension of Bound Brook's Adminstrator, Gary Strathearn after a corruption scandal. On Jan. 11, Strathearn entered a guilty plea in federal court to charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. The charges were not related to Strathearn's service in Bound Brook. The charges stem from an investigation into the administration of Allentown, PA Mayor Ed Pawlowski.  Mr. Strathearn served five years as Mayor Pawlowski's finance director.
