Launch Party

Liz and I will be hosting a Launch Party at my house on Tuesday, February 24th, at 7:30 PM. Though we’d like to invite everyone, I’m afraid we’ll have to limit attendees to invitation only. However, we welcome our invitees to bring friends as well.

At the party, we will introduce our officers, explain our strategy and platform, and formally begin our campaign.

If you would like to come and are concerned you may not receive an invite, please email me at Aberdeener@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you.

Mr. Warren,

What is your and Liz's educational background.

Thanks

Anonymous said...

will any current board members be present?

Aberdeener said...

Liz received her law degree at Seton Hall University. I have a bachelor's degree in economics from Cornell University.

Dr. Gambino has graciously offered his support. All of the other BOE members representing Aberdeen are expected to support the opposition.

Anonymous said...

If this party is by invitation only, why did you publish it on your website???

Not that I plan on crashing the party; just wondering why you would post a private by invitation only party.

Anyway, good luck. You have my vote.

Aberdeener said...

Twofold - Keep the conversation going, let people know we'll be running a strong campaign, and recruit volunteers. In case we forget to contact anybody, they should contact us.

Thanks for your support.

Anonymous said...

And in return for Dr. Gambino's support,you will stroke his enormous ego by nominating and/or voting for him as board president? We cast stones and play politics as usual-how interesting.

Anonymous said...

Isn't it interesting that Dr. Gambino is the only Aberdeen Board Representative who is not under BAZA’s influence?

NSectionJoe said...

Once again the anonymous geniuses have spoken or at least they delivered the message they were instructed to bring forth to distract from the real issues and problems our district faces.

This campaign needs to be on real issues and to ensure that $64,000,000.00 of our tax dollars is spent efficiently and brings forth what our students and their parents expect and deserve.

Obviously all of the anonymous detractors have been given their assignments. Of course it is from some unknown region of absolute ignorance that their assignments are born and brought forth.

Anonymous you should be so proud of yourself. Go fetch your special treat from those who throw you a bone now and then for defending their costly mistakes. Your supposed support which is obviously based on flawed allegiances or your obvious beholding or some promise of reward or position will never give cover to the flawed excuses from leadership for our districts countless problems. Problems you just seem to ignore as though our districts test scores and spending habits of its administrators has been above board and always efficient.

Try thinking for yourself next time.

I defend these two candidates for one and only one reason, incumbents out in Aberdeen. I hope it catches on this election season as no matter what these two might accomplish it is a change that would not be beholding to the flawed practices and egotistical clicks of the past, that caused most of these problems to fester.

$64,000,000.00 annually deserves more then excuses from those who sat in comfortable chairs on the school board and those same people who settled for far less then that amount of tax dollars should have brought forth.

Joe-
sometimes, ever so seldom I actually agree with you. Perhaps if you spent less time slapping those that you disagree with ,folks would be able to read your ideas rather than skip them because they don't wan't to wade through your verbage. Just an idea.

Anonymous said...

Interesting that the poster didn't indicate that he is not under the influence of anyone else on the board.

Anonymous said...

Joe,

You do articulate well and have some good ideas.

But your attacks on anonymous are wrong since 90 percent of people on here are anonymous - fake name or not.

And when people don't agree with you - you attack. If Dr. G does become board president - REMEMBER THIS POST and say you are sorry. If it does not happen, your skepticism well admired.

Larry said...

If we don't yet support the same candidates as the brilliant Joe, not even knowing who all the candidates are, you are then ignorant. Your pompous, hate spewing rhetoric only adds to negative campaigning. When one wins and has to work with others the animosity carries over into the decision making and it becomes counterproducitve. It creates divided boards and the personalites
fight like children instead of focusing on the problems. We don't even know who is running and already he starts throwing mud and tries to put people on different sides. Lets find out first who the candidates are and what they stand for in a civil manner, so later on they can work together. Only two candidates have announced yet some are ignorant if they ask questions.
Save the pontificating Joe for when the election starts because your not as important as you think you are. We'll make up our own informed minds when all the candidates announce they are running and support the winners no matter who they are.

I will never support Barzar. They fooled a lot of people in the past. I only hope the vote shows that the residents of Aberdeen finally realize what Barzar really stands for.

As for Dr. Gambino, I have seen a lot of positive changes since he has been elected to the board. What is wrong with him choosing to support Mr. Warren, it is evidant the the other Aberdeen people on the board will support whoever they are told to support not for whom they believe in.

I've been in town since Dr. Regan. Nothing has changed.

joepleaseshutupalready said...

I am just curious, Joe, are you capable of posting without going on and on and on to infinity? Or, is your ego so overinflated that you think everyone needs to know how big your vocabulary is?

joepleaseshutupalready said...

I anxiously wait your long winded reply.

Anonymous said...

I think that it is pretty funny you have 2 people mentioned on this blog that are going to support Mr. Warren and Ms. Hayward and not BARZAR and it is said in 2 seperate postings that they both have big "EGOS". Can this be BARZAR posting???? So, I guess if YOU do not support BARZAR, YOU must also have an overinflated or enormous ego not just Joe and Dr. Gambino.

joepleaseshutupalready said...

Actually, I don't even know what barzar stands for, can you clue me in on that? I am just tired of Joe attacking anyone who dares to disagree with him (on any topic) with a 35 paragraph tirade.

Edgeviewted07 said...

Don't you people get it yet? Attacking the Aberdeener or Joe or anyone else on this site does absolutely nothing. I ask you those of who seem to attack anyone with true facts and insight on the root causes and perhaps some solutions for our districts many problems. Are they wrong? I do not think they are. Not one bit.
So all of you who attack those with considerable concerns and proofs of flawed leadership just ask yourself just one more question. Do you like, agree, condone, expect, consider or simply just ignore what anyone brings up on this site? That is the $64 million dollar question for you to answer since miserable test scores and flawed administrations seems to be just fine with you. So just sit down, shut up and let yourself continue to be the fools you are. I am willing to bet you think the stimulus package is a good thing as well? Good luck with that because your grandchildrens grandchildren will be paying for that one. I bet you are so proud of that failure as well.

Anonymous said...

EVTed,
I'm of the opinion that all the attacks on the Aberdeener and NJoe, are the same blogger or small group of bloggers under different anonymous post. Do you really think anyone takes them serious? I don't!

NSectionJoe said...

Thanks for the call Ken in regards to joepleaseshutupalready.

I am it seems once again the tee ball for some frustrated person who does not care for my postings. So I will try this one more time for the idiot in the cheap seats

Put your cookies and milk down and pay attention.

If you see NSectionJoe on the Aberdeener, on any subject, just ignore it, pass on by as not to frustrate yourself or anger yourself in any way, as you sit in your misery and self loathing.

I am a taxpayer, alumni, parent of a student in the district and I give a damn about the vast amounts of money that is spent in this district, as well as the results that money has failed to bring forth for many years.

I have tried to be respectful joepleaseshutupalready and if this is not enough to satisfy you or you do not yet understand me, I beg of you to bring the crayons you write with over to my house and I will draw you a picture so you may understand that you do not have to read what I post on this site. If that is not simple enough, I feel sorry for you. Enjoy your fantasy that all is right with the world.

Do yourself a favor and just call me next time so you do not embarrass yourself in front of the rest of us who seek accountability and prudent financial spending of SIXTY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS.

Batter up. Swing for the fences.

Edgeviewted07 said...

Bravo Joe Bravo!

The worlds problems are not solved with short answers like joepleaseshutupalready desires.

Anyone remember these classics.

I did not have sex with that woman Monica Lewinsky. BC late 90s

I am not a crook. RMN Late 60s

The test scores will improve. BQ ?

We need a turf football field. JM ?

I did not seek special treatment for my son or daughter. CZ 2008/9

Just a sample of people elected to serve the people who lied and were probably believed by the anonymous joeshutupalready.

joepleaseshutupalready said...

Edgeview,
Let me begin by saying that I am not a fan of Obama, or his handout. Not everyone who disagrees with you or your loud mouth friend is a Democrat, Kauff lover, Vinci supporter etc.
Joe,
Thank you for doing exactly what I said you would and telling everyone how "smart" you are, in a long rambling post.
You are such an ass.lol

joepleaseshutupalready said...

Edgeview,
For the record, I have no problem with the Aberdeener, just big mouth.

Anonymous said...

I am sorry. I read this blog often. Rarely comment.

But besides all of the side talk, Joe, you do at times bring it on yourself by go after those who have a dissenting opinion in comparison to yours.

You are a concerned citizen and I applaud that, but, verbally attacking EVERY POST that does not agree with you, does not help the situation.

From what I see here, let us see who all of the candidates are before we go any further.

Gambino offered his home, how very nice. What have you offered him in return?

Anonymous said...

I don't know about the other anonymous posters. There are many of us here, all with different writing styles. I'm sure you've noticed. I post anonymously because so many who particpate here are mean spirited. They assume the worst motivations about those they disagree with. They insult, name call and sometimes come close to a threatening attitude! So I will remain safely anonymous. In fact, I recommend it! Thank you very much.

LloydRdMomNTeacher said...

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe it said Dr. Gambino "offered his support", not his home.
I believe the Aberdeener clearly stated the party was at his own home.

Aberdeener said...

Sorry I'm late responding to some of the posts.

The launch party is at my house and I'm proud to have Dr. Gambino's support.

Pete, thanks for letting me know teachers had first bite by statute - I was unaware. I'll try to check the particulars with the BOE attorney.

We do not know who will also run for the school board. However, excluding current and former board members, we do know all the people who regularly attend BOE meetings (it's a small crowd) and they are supporting Liz's and my candidacies.

I am tickled by some of the attacks. Considering the volume of articles I've written, I had assumed people would attack me on my positions or investigative reporting. Is this the best they can do?

I'm looking forward to the next two months. This will be fun.

G patel said...

It is obvious that the attackers have been outclassed by someone who truly cares and puts himself out there. I called Joe tonight and asked him to take a breather. I did not do that to protect him just to not give the anonymous posters a topic to not focus on the sixty four million dollar number and the obvious school deficiencies. Joe by the way does not attack he defends his position. Unlike those who attack him who hardly ever touch on the subject at hand. It is called hide and seek in my country when the attacker does not want to discuss the real problem they hide and seek out a distraction. Lately Joe has been made the distraction.

The problems in the school district and its excessive costs still remain whether justshutup wants to realize it or not.

Cliffwstan said...

I agree the slandered BIG MOUTH put justshutup to shame in his response.As I read it I was embarassed and can see that the responses from justshutup are filled with anger for being bested every time he posts. I truly believe it is as Mr. Patel said it is merely a game to justshutup and no truer words have been posted. Then when Mr. Patel reminds us and especially justshutup that they do not address the topic or the problems of the schools that nsectionjoe takes on competently when they attack anyone as though there attack will remedy the problem or topic. None of us will ever satisfy someone like justshutup. Maybe they need to justshutup themselves.

joepleaseshutupalready said...

Patel & Cliffwstan,
I don't disagree with you on the issues of the district. Being a product of it myself I have seen with my own eyes, the problems that it has. (and that was long ago, it does not sound like there has been much improvement)
I only disagree with you on the topic of your friend Joe. I find him to be a loud obnoxious blowhard, that claims to have been on the job at one time (bullshit probably) and is now a glorified meter maid, as a direct result of political patronage.
You people make a lot of good points. You have some good ideas. I'll even go as far to say I agree with Joe on some issues, but like it or not, people are entitled to their opinions, i am simply expressing mine.
FU JOE

AbdnRdCknIn said...

Once again pleaseshutup brings nothing to the conversation but allegations of nsecjoe being a liar and worse. All of course without one shred of proof, which is all to telling and speaks to pleaseshutup and the lack of character people like that thrive on.

Who is the real liar pleaseshutup when one such as you adds nothing to the discussion and only criticizes those who do? Say what you will about whomever you want Mr., Mrs. Or Ms. pleaseshutup, but at least those you criticize are up front, concerned and offer insight, opinion and information for many too busy with trying to survive. By the way you still have not answered the sixty four million dollar question.

As was so well put by nsecjoe
batter up and swing for the fences, but do it against me now. I among many stand with him proudly against your incompetence, childishness and interfering ways.

Ain't it funny how that works out? Politcal patronage is just another way for the squeeky wheel to get the grease. Lucrative game, if you can stomach it.

HadenoughBSyetfromBARZA said...

Joe if any of you took the time to speak to him would tell you very honestly why he does what he does.
Yes he is outspoken. Yes he is controversial. Yes he is a big mouth. The question most of us have to ask ourselves is why aren't we big mouths along side him. Those who attack him need to show us just one thing he has addressed that is not true.

Do we not have low test scores and unchecked and out of control spending in our school district?
Do we not have too many years of political leaders saying the train station needs to be developed with questionable players and monies spent with little results other then for the politically favored?
Those topics and many more he and others similarly attacked make us think about. In closing those who attack him deserve that which he puts upon you.

You never seem to be anything close to informed on the subject matter, just on your attacks.

NJoe, you certainly don't need my support for your comments and contributions, but I would like to give you my thanks. I too try to contribute and voice my own concerns and know it certainly is not easy in this town. I wish more people will stand up and start to speak up. Perhaps it has begun. We've had Ken, Joey Warren and Liz and I hope more to come.

DogwoodsSilentnomore said...

Please don't thank or support Joe as that would make justshutup very angry. Then we would unfortunately have to read more of his attacks that give no insight on the subject matter. I for one feel sad for justshutup as they seem so eager to attack but add nothing more to solve or highlight the problem. Enough people in town and on here know Joe truly cares about Aberdeen. I suggest we all just ignore those like justshutup.

NoGartleyfan said...

I wonder if justshutup sees the irony in the fact that since he started his attack on Joe over ten posts have come in supporting and encouraging Joe. Let me guess justshutup is now going to say it is a plot against him. Maybe if he brought more to the table then criticism he would not be scorned.
Do not get me wrong we as citizens, taxpayers and more are well within our rights to criticize and highlight the positives or negatives of our elected officials, school boards, administrators and more.

The sad part is that these are the people that we entrust to do the right thing on our behalf, and who seem to fail us repeatedly. Justhutup please answer one simple question for me and perhaps many others. How can you criticize someone who has put in one hundred times more effort to better his community then most of us have?

You claim many things about Joe yet you do not know the man. You make allegations that he received his job through politics, yet you have not one shred of proof. You claim his purports to have been *on the job* yet you have no proof he wasn't. He is listed in the phone book or are you afraid. It seems you would rather skulk around in the dark than call and question the man you attack.

It seems you are the central figure in your own hatred of someone you really do not even know. At least when Joe or others exemplify wrongdoings by our elected officials and others they give some proof. Whether you believe them or not does not really matter and that is for one simple reason only. Their posted information coupled with not one single denial from anyone posted and whose conduct, results or allegations as exemplified on the Aberdeener has never been denied. That speaks volumes to many of us. Think about it. Not one denial ever!

Think it is because it just might be the truth. Trust all the politicians you want justshutup. Just ask an American Indian what happens when you trust the government. Our government took their whole country and put them on reservations.

Keep trusting your government while I will keep standing up for those you attack.

"How can you criticize someone who has put in one hundred times more effort to better his community then most of us have?"

Can't we say that about all the board memebers, even if you don't like or agree with them? You might not like the choices they have made, but at least they are giving their time to do something.

Anonymous said...

Maybe "all" of the board members started out with the intentions of "bettering his community", but for some, it's been a long time since they've really done it. You can tell by the look of disdain on their faces when concerned citizens get up to speak, in their rude comments, and in the way they fly in the face of so many ethics guidelines set by the state.

The only thing a few of them are trying to better are their own positions.

Confucious 2009 said...

Devils advocate: Those of us who post, suggest, criticize, exemplify or give our opinions are not in charge of running our communities or our schools. We are also not responsible for prudently spending tens of millions of taxpayer dollars each and every year. So how is it so much time is spent by a few disgruntled and obviously vindictive
people who seem to want to distract from the subject matter. All the wile never adding to the topics and pertinent discussions.

Aberdeener said...

I agree with Confucious. We don't attack elected officials to be vindictive. We criticize them because that's our only means to hold them accountable.

At the same time, I welcome criticism because that's the only means for the public to hold me accountable for what I write.

As for some of our school board members, perhaps when they assume accountability, they, too, will welcome criticism.

EdgeviewTed07 said...

The last two posts sum it all up just fine. It is quite obvious and as has been suggested, some of the antagonists who criticize and add nothing to the topic of discussion like this weekends criticism of NSectionJoe was unwarranted and obviously insanely personal, without adding any real substance to the discussion. As Mr. Patel stated it is a game of hide and seek.

That is the same game that our elected officials play with us. If we find out about there shall we say questionable activities or backroom deals, we win the game. If we don't they win and the cost is significant. The Aberdeener and concerned residents tired of politics as usual is no longer a joke. It is very costly to each and every one of us in many ways. Between the school board and the town council of Aberdeen it is over seventy five million dollars. With all of the questionable suggested activities and inside dealings by powerful yet unelected peoples, the time has come to speak out. Despite people like this justshutup person they did not win the game. Most of us stayed on subject. Perhaps they will realize we want to know the truth of what goes on and that they are merely a momentary distraction.

joepleaseshutupalready said...

Edgeview,
I am a momentary distraction remember? Then why the hell are you STILL talking about me? It has been at least 24 hrs. since my last post. Take your own advice and stick to the subject.I'm sorry I insulted your boyfriend, OK? feel better now?

What a bunch of boring comments

Anonymous said...

I love this site however i must make one statement. While all of you have been bickering away on this site no one seemed to notice the massive fire that struck near the train station. I think our firemen deserve some kudos for preventing the fire from spreading to any more homes. From what i understand the fire was already through the roof on arrival of the fire department and they managed not to let it spread. So much time is spent on what is percieved as the bad in this town but nobody reaches out to give a pat on the back when someone does good. These men are volunteers and we should be very proud of them. Next time you see one of your firemen walking in town or wherever why not tell him thank you. They are two words i fear they dont hear as often as they should.

Aberdeener said...

Thx for the comment. I had left a comment on the AberdeenNJlife blog regarding the fire but didn't write about it here.

I spoke to some of the volunteers Saturday night and they said it was under investigation so I held off till we had more details.

You're right, however, we don't thank them enough.

Anonymous said...

Couldnt locate your comment sorry.

Aberdeener said...

MrFF said...

Thanks for the kudos. The compliments are very much appreciated and will forward on. And thank you to the surrounding town's Fire Companies that aided also.

NSectionJoe said...

As I live in the N section it was very obvious that the fire was not far away. Upon my arrival the fire was well underway and it was obvious the fire department and police had the area cordoned off and were doing a great job controlling access to the area, and putting water on the fire.

It was a fire that moved very quickly and with the combination of the high winds and vinyl siding the fire moved very fast around and through the entire structure. The gusting wind direction along with our brave firefighters saved the next door neighbors house, to the point that her home had no damage or melting of her brand new vinyl siding at all. I spoke to the woman who owned that house to day as I was working nearby and she told me she is writing a letter of thanks to as she said to me several times, the brave men who saved her and her house.

Once again our volunteer firefighters and police officers did an excellent job as they were the first to arrive on the scene. They were there to make sure the buildings were evacuated immediately and all of the residents were safe even before the fire department arrived. It was a very quick moving fire and the amount of damage done in just a very few minutes was quite extensive and amazing to observe.

Many citizens need to know that our volunteers do not sit around waiting for a fire to start. They live normal lives and have similar weekend activities to attend to, as we all do. However when a call rings out alerting them to a fire, they immediately stop what they are doing, drive to the firehouse, jump into their turn-out gear and proceed to the fire to put their lives on the line for all of the citizens of Aberdeen. That entire process took ten minutes from the first notification to their arrival on the fire scene.

I myself think their response time was amazing and shows without question the dedication and service to the community all of our first responders give.

I also say that as I was number 109 to vote for the Fire Department budget and Commissioners election, which the citizens of Aberdeen were to vote for on that very day. How many Aberdeen citizens even knew that such an election was taking place on Saturday, much less that these same men and many others risked had risked their lives earlier in the same day for someone they did not even know.

The fire wiped out a two family structure and I will see if anything is needed for our neighbors who obviously lost everything.

And if your assertion is that she had a "nervous breakdown" it says more about you than it does her.

Hopefully the Aberdeener and Liz represent a more human side of the residents of Matawan/Aberdeen.

you are right one should not delight in the health/mental health issues of anyone, however, I for one think the revelation that her darlin' Quinn did not have his proper certificates when he was hired--sounds familiar?---and then the State notified the District (Glastein/probably BOE president--CZ) in June 2003 that he did not have them...yet he did nothing to get them until 12/03, was the final blow. There is no way she would want to stick around for the mess that's likely to come from this. What ever the reason..I will be lifting a chilled Martini to celebrate!

I AM VERY GLAD FOR WHATEVER THE REASON SHE IS GONE. DO NOT BLAME THE BLOG ASTHAT MERELY ALLOWS FOR HER SUPPORTERS AND HER DETRACTORS A PLACE TO SPEAK OUT. AFTER ALL WE DID NOT HAVE OUR OWN MICROPHONE AND TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PLAY WITH. ALLOW ME MY MOMENT IN THE SUN.

I HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO WORK ON MY NEXT POST FOR WHEN BARBATO ANNOUNCES THAT HE WILL NOT BE RUNNING. ITS A WHOLE LOT DIFFERENT FOR PEOPLE WHOSE EGOS AND FORMER POWER IS SNATCHED AWAY. THEY TEND TO RUN FOR COVER. RUN JOHN RUN. RUN AWAY FROM ANOTHER TERM.

MY ONE AND ONLY FEAR IS THAT WITH ALL OF THE PROBLEMS THE DEMOCRATS WILL BE HAVING WITH THE NEXT ELECTION COME NOVEMBER THAT THEY WILL BE SO DESPERATE THEY WOULD CONSIDER PUTTING BARZA ON THEIR TICKET FOR TOWN COUNCIL IN NOVEMBER.

More then likely the Zavorskas seat will be a one year appointment then an open public election will be held.

Personally I thank Ms. Zavorskas merely for the time she spent on the Aberdeen portion of the school board as an unpaid volunteer.

Bill@WarrenDr. said...

Pay attention Aberdeen look at all of these exciting and all too telling changes among our self serving elected officials. School Board member Cathy Zavorskas resigns late yesterday. Rumors have been swirling lately that even the sitting Aberdeen council people will not be running for reelection this year. At first I did not believe it and then I thought perhaps with the economy and all, perhaps the C.M.E. gravy train has finally run dry. Then I thought as it has been suggested before, maybe the patronage job giveaway will finally give Mayor Slob-el and Councilman Drapkin their long sought after cushy positions on the Monmouth County dole. Councilman Perri is up this year as well but I do not know much about him other then he once was a R and changed to being a D. Perhaps he will run again just to piss Norman Kauff off. He is one I truly feel for as on the one or two occasions during CERT drills that I spoke to him, he really wanted to do good for Aberdeen. I think right off the bat he hit THE NORMAN KAUFF POLITICAL WALL. That wall is tall, thick and unwavering and the obvious rewards for Norman Kauff and his CLOSE PERSONAL FRIENDS, which to say the least has been very lucrative, maybe it wore him down. Too bad for him I say. Now i will go to the meeting tonight as Kauff wants to cash in again and allow condos to be near my little neighborhood. Bad enough they allow this drunk dry out house near my home and even next to a childrens nursery school. People have had enough of Kauff and his master plan for himself. They will hear me tonight as I am fed the - - - - up. And don't let me see Norman Kauff there tonight as I will tell him what I think of him to. Change is knocking on the door for Aberdeens taxpayers and Norman Kauff better hear it. Time is catching up with you Mr. Kauff. I among many hope the authorities will soon do the same. You piece of garbage.

HAVE WE NOT PAID ENOUGH IN THE PAST FOR SUCH DEVELOPERS AND THE RESULTING KIDS WHO USE OUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS AT THIRTEEN THOUSAND EACH STUDENT. THE DEVELOPER BUILDS AND LEAVES US WITH THAT BILL.

FORGET THE CONGESTION ON THESE TWO LOCATIONS AND THE FACT THAT HIGHWAY PROPERTY IS FOR RATABLES NOT DEVELOPMENTS. FORGET THE FACT THAT COUNTY ROAD IS ALREADY INUNDATED WITH TRAFFIC. FORGET THE SCHOOLS BURSTING AT THE SEAMS. FORGET THE FACT THAT KAUFF HAS HIS HANDS AND POLITICAL INTERFERENCE ALL OVER THIS APPLICATION FOR HIS CLOSE PERSONAL FRIENDS WHICH COMES ALONG WITH ITS FINANCIAL BENEFITS FOR HIS CORRUPT CAMPAIGN TREASURY. FORGET ALL OF THAT AND GO TO THE MEETING TONIGHT AT TOWN HALL AND SEE CORRUPTION AT ITS FINEST.

DON'T LOOK FOR KAUFF TONIGHT. HE DOESN'T EXIT HIS LAIR UNTIL ITS REALLY DARK AND A FULL MOON IS SHINING BRIGHT. THE OLD VAMPIRE THAT HE IS. HE IS CERTAINLY SUCKING ABERDEEN OF ITS LIFES BLOOD. I HOPE FORMER COUNCILWOMAN GALLO SHOWS UP TONIGHT AS I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS FOR HER ABOUT KUFF.

You can be sure that the phone lines to planning board members were filled today with directions from Kauff about how to vote.

Kauff is like crap you can't get off your shoe after you step in it. He was the town attorney, he retired, he collects a pension, he now works for the new town attorney, he still pull the strings of a majority of council members. When it's that bad, you just have to throw the shoes in the trash.

I really think that the taxpayers of Aberdeen will be sending a very strong message that the Kauff as usual type business in Aberdeen is over. Corruption and Kauff have been a secret for far too long. The change is coming and those who are foolish enough to run this year on the democratic ticket will have a rude awakening.

After reading this blog for about one half hour, and taking in all the Aberdeen and Board of Ed accusations, I have to admit I have been educated. It also is making me feel alot better about my little town of Matawan, which has its problems, but surely not as much corruption. Matawan's Council Meetings are boring compared to this stuff. Keep me posted, I love learning about my neighbors. Thanks Aberdeener

Matawan anonymous you have no idea. I tell you that Matawan is no different than Aberdeen. Sure we for the moment and as most would say, for far too long have had to be under the thumb of Norman Kauff Esq. corrupt attorney.

Recent events and questions from shall we say the jandarm have given those of us contacted and talked to much hope.

I for one think your town may be in far worse financial shape then many residents may realize. Your leadership under your arrogant drunk with power Mayor and the divided remaining council members will not be able to pull you out of the financial situation Matawan leadership has been hiding from all of you for many years. The baby is about to go out with the bath water.

Why is your moniker Marcwoods yet you live in Aberdeen?

Good afternoon all. First off I should say that I lived in Marc woods until five years ago and I simply kept the identifier. Now that I live in Aberdeen I keep abreast of Kauff and others who are raping us taxpayers. I thought of running for the school board myself this year but I have had no children in the district for many years now and did not want to be the next Mr. Fumarola. I thought well of him and God rest his soul.

In Aberdeen and on the Aberdeener we can all get a good education on the comings and hopeful goings of Mr. Norman Kauff. I agree with several posters that if the candidates do not distance themselves and sign an oath to not take Kauff engineered or ill gotten monies. I and many others will be working very hard to link all of you together at every council meeting and in the public domain if you stay with Kauff.

Be careful what you ask for when you Kauff defenders tell us that we critics should go to council meetings and ask our questions. You are soon to get what you have long asked suggested. Then of course all of you will just deny any knowledge of Kauffs illegal activities. Just remember what happened the last time some members of a council denied their lord and master three times.

Seven Marc Woods properties have land in Aberdeen, three completely fall within the Aberdeen boundary. The other four fall between the two towns. All are on Mohawk Drive. If you were looking at a map of just Aberdeen it would be at the bottom of the tip of the tomahawk and Freneau is the skull fragment that fell from it.
