Judy Dale Resurfaces in New Jersey, And More Trouble Now Ensuing

By Mike Hudson

September 23, 2014

Judy Dale has moved up - from managing the Parkway in Niagara Falls (above) to the Galaxy in Gutenberg, NJ. (bottom of page).

Judy Dale, now known as Judith Marra, formerly of Niagara Falls, is managing the Galaxy Condominiums in Guttenberg, N. J..

She earned notoriety in Niagara Falls when she managed the Parkway Condominiums about 10 years ago.

The Galaxy position is a step up for Dale. When she managed the Parkway Condominiums, she had a budget of around $400,000. Her budget at the Galaxy, a high-rise, multi-story development, is close to $20 million.

In the spring of 2004, the Niagara Falls Reporter broke the story that she was misappropriating Parkway money, using a condo credit card for everything from trips to Victoria's Secret to visits to New York City and the Caribbean.

She even charged $10,000 to the Association's MasterCard to purchase appliances and other items that were delivered to her home.

Following our expose she was arrested in 2005 and arraigned in Niagara County Court on charges of stealing about $50,000 from the condo association. The grand jury indictment accused her of multiple counts of grand larceny, petit larceny, falsifying business records, tampering with physical evidence, contempt of court.

She faced felony charges, which could have brought her seven years in prison. Then Dist. Atty. Matthew J. Murphy III met with the Parkway board and obtained its approval for a plea bargain. The board was more interested in restitution than seeing her behind bars.

At the time, the Parkway board was headed by Mickey Brown, CEO of the Seneca Niagara Casino. He enjoyed considerable political clout in Niagara Falls and was a close personal friend of Dale.

She pleaded guilty to a single charge of petit larceny and agreed to repay $30,000 in restitution to the condominium's board of directors. She was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours of community service.

Now she apparently has ruffled feathers at the Galaxy condo and condo owners have written to the Reporter to ascertain what happened here and tell us what is happening there. One condo owner wrote, "Long time employees have been fired for no other reason than voicing concerns; unit owners who dare to speak up are being harassed."

Now there is a campaign afoot to oust her, based on her troubled past.

"Would anyone in their right mind say that the nature of the crimes perpetrated by the General Manager (Dale) of a Condominium association in Niagara Falls in 2004 is not relevant to concerns about risks in a similar position as the General Manager of the (Galaxy) in 2014 but with a budget of 20 Million Dollars?" the Galaxy's newsletter wrote this week. "Would any sane person want this person to manage our money?"

"(Galaxy) Board President Karl Kieninger (is) trying to spin and cover up (the board's) collective ineptness regarding the criminal past of our General Manager and the potential financial devastation it brings to our Galaxy community!"

We'll keep you posted.
