TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A state report says a New Jersey school district administrator made “questionable payments” to himself and another employee.

A report released this month by the New Jersey Education Department’s Fiscal Accountability and Compliance Office says Michael Griggel authorized $18,000 in payments for stipends and merit bonuses for work performed on grants and an energy program at the Swedesboro-Woolwich district.

The report says he made similar payments totaling nearly $33,000 to another employee.

Griggel was business administrator at the district. He left last summer to the same job at the Deptford district.

His lawyer Francis Campbell tells the South Jersey Times (https://bit.ly/1CUwphL) Griggel was “blindsided” by the accusations and that he would tell Griggel’s “full story” to save his reputation.
