Former Moorestown Superintendent Joins '$100K Club'

A new name has been added to the list of former Moorestown Public School administrators collecting six-figure pensions, according to one watchdog group.

According to the aptly named New Jersey Watchdog website, former superintendent John Bach, who left the district last year, earned $124,620 in pension benefits in 2012. 

Bach , who pulled down $109,474, in what the watchdog group has dubbed the $100K Club.
