Prosecutors yesterday charged the head of the city’s blue-collar union with fraudulently obtaining contracts with the city valued at approximately $51,000.

David G. Tallone, president of AFSCME Local 2286 and president of the City of Trenton Employees Credit Union, was charged with impersonation and forgery for allegedly using his sister’s name on contracts to provide food for city events on at least five separate occasions between April 2007 and May 2011.

Tallone, a 56-year-old employee of the city’s public works department, used a false vendor name to circumvent the Faulkner Act, which prohibits city employees from contracting with the city to provide goods or services, Mercer County Prosecutor Joseph L. Bocchini announced yesterday.
