Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale

It's that time of year again. The first Sunday in June is the Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale.

This is the third year and I expect it to be another success. All past participants will be notified and I expect most of them to participate again.

I apologize for not announcing it sooner but I'm using another person's software and there are still some minor glitches, the worst being it takes about 30 minutes for a new listing to post after being approved. I'll let you know when it's fixed.

Registration is completely free and I will not share your email addresses with anybody. Also, you don't need to register to have a yard sale. Nor does Aberdeen require any permits or the like. If anybody in any of the neighboring towns wishes to participate, you're welcome to join us.

The date is Sunday, June 6th, from 9AM to 4PM. Best of luck to everybody. >>> Read more!

Way to go Joey!!!

You've done an excellent job of burying your terrible school budget and its impending destruction of Aberdeen with posts about Township "liars" and the Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale!!!

I'm not saying these other posts aren't worthy of airtime, but you always seem to come out with Township "news" and a flurry of unrelated blogs when you and the school board are at your worst...

And don't tell me I'm making this up... See, e.g., last July, which was your busiest blogging month of 2009 (ten blogs, including the one about Monster Mark Coren). Not so coincidentally, your flurry of activity followed right on the heels of your voting to give Dr. Dick O'Malley a 10% pay raise for doing the job he was hired to do.

Now, I think it was terrific to see what became of that asshole, Coren. However, it's curious that this bombshell was dropped as soon as the spotlight was turned on you and your fellow village idiots, I mean BOE members. Especially, since Coren had been in jail for a while already.

So, I see your diffuse and deflect tactics are back at work again this month after your shit-bag school budget went down in flames. No blog about your BOE's failure to do your due diligence and put forth an acceptable budget, huh? The middle-of-the-roaders and the non-partisans in this town are on to your game, Joey... A game that has been bad news for Aberdeen from the start...

In the words of a fellow Aberdeener-reader, your fifteeen minutes of being involved in this community is counting down...

I have to say that previous post is one of the best ever on this blog.

Anonymous, you are absolutely correct in your elevation of Joey Warren.

He is such a politician and the people of Aberdeen are beginning to catch on.

Tick Tock Tick Tock! I hear the clock ticking Joey Boy!

Anonymous said...

Absolutely, Warren is the same animal as the ones he complains about here, he just has a different master. If, by some miracle, his masters ever got into power, it would be the same patronage and corruption that exists now, just with different people reaing the rewards.

I nominate Joey Warren for School Board President.

No big deal though. Joey is used to no one seconding his ass-bag motions...

I was sitting home the other day when my neighbor came over offering a cup of coffee. We started to talk about Aberdeen and she mentioned this blog to me.

I had never heard of it before, so I immediately went on-line to check it out. What an experience.

After spending quite sometime on this blog, I have grown to learn that Joey Warren is a untrustworthy politician who never backs up any of his claims and wastes time at Board of Education meetings making motions that no one seconds.

I am so glad that my neighbor educated me as to this place. Now I know exactly what is going on with our local board of education.

Simply unbelieveable.

Ha! " Joey is used to no one seconding his ass bag motions" I almost peed myself whrn I read that one. Hysterical

Anonymous horses asses said...

Joey Warren is untrustworthy? Are not the people who criticize him from the BARZA world of being anonymous far more ignorant? You are nothing but ignorant bastards all of you. Keep sitting on your high horses while Rome crumbles around you. You are all a bunch of horses asses while you spit on Joey Warren from your recliners between Oprah and Ellen and stuffing your faces with bon bons.

Attack away losers said...

Attack away against Joey. But first explain how we would have been able to find out about the underhanded things that Mr.K. and the group are doing. Or many of the things, which anonymous idiots see as anti-barza posts related to the school board and their arrogant and costly control that caused their resignations or failure to run for reelection. How about the moneys wasted and people responsible who have had the light shown on them by Joey? All this and so much more was brought to light by Joey. Sure the council, school boards and various others don't come on here and defend themselves. They can't. That is their guilt keeping them from that one honest task. Ask yourself why Mayor T. never came on here for a one to one interview when he was running for office. Was it that he and many others who cannot answer the real and substantive questions that would be put to them by Joey? One interview from Mr. K. alone would result in never needing the blog for governmental corruption questions until the next Mr. K, brought his corrupt head out of the sand with dictatorial control. Mr. K. and many others absolutely hate Joey. That is all the proof many need to know of their true guilt. Just look at the latest posts concerning the Mr. K. projects that may have uncovered overpaid lawyers lying to the very leadership that pay them to cash in for Mr. K. and his developer buddies. You can bet they are scrambling about that information getting out to the public. So attack away you see Joey can take it. Just remember all of the denials with Woodward and Bernstien when Nixon said "I am not a crook". Clinton with "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky" and the best one of all "Mr. K. is just a former town attorney who is simply a retired man and he has nothing to do with the management of Aberdeen". Right like anyone would believe that one? Right Mr. K.

Leadership is said...

Leadership that goes unquestioned is anything but leadership.

Leadership that ignores the questions against its decisions is anything but leadership.

Leadership in Aberdeen is denied by Kauff.

Leadership will be tested today.

Right Normy.

Rise up people said...

Leadership does not exist in our community. It is a dictatorship. A dictatorship is not leadership it is merely a few who corruptly profit by wrongly controlling the many. Rise up people and take back your community from your opressors.

Anonymous said...

Aberdeener Attackers forget one large fact that redirects the discussion back to them -- they always attack Joey when they have no defense for Tagliarini, the Councils, and the Township "Professionals". Tagliarini the Weenie and the Council's actions over the last week, concerning the two developments, speak for themselves.

The Township Attorneys lies, that Council action was based upon supposedly, speak for themselves.

Kauff's collusion and meetings in violation of the Sunshine act speak for themselves.

When the fires of corruption are burning the house down, you can't send the firetrucks in the other direction.

What's also really interesting, for those who question the school budget which had a minimal increase, is the question of: Where is the Aberdeen Budget? Lost in Action? Backroom deals? Tag, Norm, Vinci, Drapkin, Gumbs -- all must go. They can take Kauff with them.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon 4/27/10 @ 8:36 AM,

Please spare me your "one large fact." Joey always discovers massive conspiracies within the Township whenever the BOE takes action to destroy Aberdeen.

The fact is that Joey is not the investigative hero you make him out to be. Joey is a partisan ass-bag, who seeks to deflect criticism of the BOE by twisting facts and spreading untruths about the Township whenever the spotlight is placed on him and his friends. Moreover, he does all of this for the political gain of those friends.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon 4/27/10 @ 8:36 AM,

Don't believe me?... Well consider the following:

1) The Township Council is controlled by the Aberdeen Democrats.

2) Joey is wholeheartedly allied with the Aberdeen Republicans.

Seems like a reach, right? Hardly, when you look at the record:

1) Ken Aitken is the 1st V.P. and Treasurer of the Aberdeen Republican Club. He also just happens to be Joey's good friend. Such a good friend that Joey endorsed him for the BOE back in 2008. Joey even gives Ken free reign on this blog to promote his political ambitions. Lo and belhold, who was quoted in the Independent as the most vocal critic of the Township's COAH plan? You guessed it, Ken Aitken (scroll to bottom).

2) The video of Leckstein threatening police action at the recent Planning Board meeting is another case of Joey's twisted politics. It's odd that Joey didn't catch any video of the crowd yelling back at Leckstein. Maybe that's because the leader of the crowd was Joey's friend John Gartley a former Republican councilman in Aberdeen. Not surprisingly, Joey also endorsed Gartley for Council back in 2007.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

3) Along with Gartley, Joey also endorsed Republican Tom Aljian for Council back in 2007. Then, in 2009, Joey gave his friend Aljian free reign on this blog during Aljian's second failed run for mayor.

4) Indeed, the Aberdeen Republicans find Joey to be such a good friend that their website provides a direct link to the Aberdeener.

5) And you want the cherry on top for Joey, the Republican partisan? Joey's champion, Dr. Dick O'Malley, is a Republican committee member in the Republican stronghold of Raritan Township, Hunterdon County. You'd think Dr. Dick and Joey, as school board members, would stay neutral in their politics, but Dr. Dick is not neutral or detached from the agenda of his political higher-ups, like Governor Christie. Indeed, Joey and Dr. Dick's budget looks more like a political pitch to the Governor than it looks beneficial for Aberdeen. In fact, read Dr. Dick's comments to the Star Ledger when he was running for re-election in Hunterdon County last year. Sounds an awful lot like what we heard here in Aberdeen about the BOE's 2010-11 budget, doesn't it?

So, don’t tell me Joey is an investigative hero. He’s just a partisan hack for his Republican friends. Just a thought, I wonder what the School Ethics Commission would have to say about Joey’s partisanship. After all, the School Ethics Act, N.J.S.A. 18A:12-21, et seq. specifically says: “I will refuse to surrender my independent judgment to special interest or partisan political groups or to use the schools for personal gain or for the gain of friends.”

Even more interesting will be to see how much assistance Dr. Dick and his Hunterdon County Republicans provide to the Aberdeen Republicans’ 2011 campaign…

Just connecting the dots, Joey…

Tick Tock Tick Tock…

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon 4/27/10 @ 8:36 AM,

Forgive me, I almost forgot...

I bet you're wondering why Dr. Dick and his Hunterdon County Republicans would support Joey and his Republican friends here in Aberdeen?

Oh I don't know... Maybe because of Joey and his friends' unwavering support for Dr. Dick's massive pay increase last year during the worst economic situation since the Great Depression...

Guess only time will tell...

KAUFF IS TO BLAME FOR ALL OF IT said...

BUT WHERE IS THE ABERDEEN BUDGET? THIS AS YOU ARE RANTING AGAINST THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT IS NOT IN CONTROL AND HAS NOT BEEN IN CONTROL FOR OVER TWELVE YEARS. KEEP IT UP IGNORANT DEM THAT YOU ARE.

SOMEDAY ALL YOU DEMS WILL ADMIT THAT WHILE ALL OF YOU HAVE BEEN SO ENTRANCED IN THE WAYS OF NORMAN KAUFF, HE HAS LED YOU DOWN THE WRONG, CORRUPT AND CME ENSLAVED TAXPAYER ROAD.

SO KEEP BLAMING THE ABERDEENER FOR SHINING THE LIGHT ON THE OBVIOUS.

THE MAN YOU HAVE ENTRUSTED TO CONTROL AND RUN ABERDEEN INTO THE GROUND HAS DONE JUST THAT.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

GOOD POINT MR. AITKEN @ 1:15 PM...

Can't wait to see you playing politics in the newspaper again after the Aberdeen budget comes out...

At least this time around you'll actually have a stake in the matter, instead of going apeshit about a development that isn't even near your house in the J-section...

If politics makes for strange bedfellows, then Aitken and Warren are quite the odd couple...

A couple whose political games are becoming more clear over time...

Tick Tock Tick Tock...

whos crying now said...

But did aitken and warren put the town where it is? Did they not release the budget yet? Did they pay cme all of this money all of these kauff years? So many questions and the funny thing is it all goes right directly to the doorstep of kauff.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon 1:41 PM,

Yes, Aitken and Warren put us right where we are...

1) Aitken was a school board member during the irresponsible spending spree of 2005-2008.

2) Warren wholeheartedly supports the MARSD administration's massive pay increases last year during the worst economic situation since the Great Depression.

3) The MARSD's budget raises over $44 million dollars by taxing residents.

4) The Township's budget raises around $8 million dollars by taxing residents.

So, you tell me where fiscal irresponsibility and political hacks like Warren and Aitken have put us in relation to the Township...

Let me know, the clock has started...

Tick Tock Tick Tock...

Marc in FL said...

Talk about redirecting blame -- The Tagliarini crew (and remember Tag is really a Republican) led by Kauff, and Kauff's loyalists (Hair-piece Drapkin, Shoe polish hair Vincy, Lying Lauro) have no defense for their recent vote to screw the residents of Aberdeen with the residential developments on County Road and Route 34.

First the Planner and Engineer recommend against the proposals, then after the 2007 election they change their recommendations to support the developments. It's all stinks of the reality that Norm gets what Norm wants.

Of course the crowd yelled back at Mrs. Leckstein -- He was telling them that he was going to ignore their right to make public comments. Of course the crowd was angry - they were being lied to by the township "Professionals" and everyone knew it was a lie except for our elected officials.

To point at an organized conspiracy to discredit this township council by the Republicans is a joke. There is no organized Aberdeen republican party. The current Mayor jumped parties in his quest to become Mayor, the former head of the Republicans is just a sour old man that was kicked out of the Dems by old man Kauff, Garltley is a has-been, etc. etc.

What is organized is the pattern of questionable behavior by this and the former township council, as directed by old man Kauff. What is questionable are township and planning board attorneys that lie to the public (and maybe to elected officials). What is questionable is how much the township engineer makes off of Aberdeen.

The muck that Joey may put or allow on this blog is no match for the township (taxpayer) financed public relations campaign executed by old man Kauff's neighbor. It's no match for taxpayer financed newsletters filled with lies sent to every homeowner.

It's also to see statements critical of the school budget - which minimized classroom impact, WHEN THERE IS NO MUNICIPAL BUDGET for anyone to see. Tagliarini is all smoke and mirrors. Him and his regime will say and do anything. They let Kauff rape this town.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon @ 2:45 PM,

I'm not re-directing any blame...

Just spreading THE SAD TRUTH to the non-partisans in this town who may be fooled by Joey's false impartiality...

I'm merely pointing out that Joey's motivation for criticism of the Township is tainted by the same partisan politics he constantly speaks out against. Hence, his presentation of the issues is twisted and always skewed toward his Republican friends and against the Democratically-controlled Township.

This cannot be allowed to stand any more than political spin the other way. Especially when Joey, as a BOE member, is prohibited from being political by the School Ethics Commission's Code of Ethics.

In short, the clock on partisan ass-bags in Aberdeen, like Joey and his friends, is counting down.

Tick Tock Tick Tock...

Cannon or Drapcin in blue said...

Looks like Greg Cannon has had some time to take a computer course or two. We know it is either him or Owen (The Wig) Drapcin that is attacking with all Warren and Aitken stuff with highlighted words in blue.

Greg you may have graduated Magna Cum Scumbag from Notre Dame but that means dick if you are being led around by the nose by Kauff. To say nothing of breaking the law and violating the not so sacred oath you took to the people of this town.

So back under your mommies housecoat you elitist disappointment. I don't know which is the bigger disappointment Greg Cannon or Fred Tagliarini. Both of them should have known better.

My bad they did know better they just wanted to get elected and they sold their souls to the devil of Aberdeen to get elected.

Having fun yet? Wait until the next council meeting if you want to see fun unfold.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Anon @ 4:27 PM,

Haha, I don't know which is funnier...

1) You think it takes a degree from Notre Dame or a computer class to do this; or

2) You can't spell Drapkin's name correctly; or

3) The next Council meeting where you partisan ass-clowns from both sides will seek to destroy each other...

Actually, check that. Number 3 is not funny at all because the independents of Aberdeen will ultimately lose. Which has been the entire point of my posting today...

Still, I can't wait to see Warren and Aitken lead the buffoonery this time around... I've set my watch...

Mark in FL said...

So sad that these idiots will equate partisan politics with corruption. Even if you call it a given that Joey and some others have partisan goals, that doesn't explain away the corruption that is occurring with this gas bag township council.

Partisan politics is no excuse for:

- lying municipal attorneys
- obscene pay-to-play politics
- back-room deals with developers
- fictitious engineering and planning reports that get changed as easily as Kauff picking up the phone
- "Independent" Auditors that aren't very independent
- Obvious violations of the Open Records and Meetings Act ("Sunshine Laws") by Township professionals and elected officials
- Misleading of elected officials by township professionals and political hacks disguised as township professionals
- Taxpayer money to pay the political hack's neighbor for "public relations"
- A closed door on the municipal budget -- missing in action. The State deadline for introduction of the municipal budget was 3/19/2010 and the deadline for adoption if 5/10/2010. Does Council intend to adopt a budget with almost no public discussion?

These are not partisan criticisms. These are criticisms of a bunch of partisan boobs who have allowed themselves to be corrupted by either the quest to be Mayor, self-importance, printing jobs, influence, or whatever suits them. The seven people currently on Council are lackeys that old man Kauff is able to control.

Corrupt and lying hacks need to go regardless of political party.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Mark in FL @ 4:54 PM,

You write: "Corrupt and lying hacks need to go regardless of political party."

Agreed. But, no one can tell me Joey should be casting the first stone from his big glass house on Ithaca Court...

P.S. You're looking good, Mark. I know I'm counting the time until your supervised release...

I'm glad to see there are others who see Joey for what he is. Before you accuse me of being a Democrat plant, let me tell you that I think John D'amico is the biggest scumbag that ever walked the earth, Democrat politicians suck too. They all do.

Partisanship Does Not Equal Corruption said...

Some may say that Joey is arrogant;
some may say he has tunnel-vision;
some may call him an annoying curmudgeon;
Some may not like the positions he takes on issues;
Some may not like his lack of hair (by the way, the only thing he has in common with Drapkin);
Some might not like his ideas, his apparent political party, his friends ....

But that doesn't equate to him being part of a group of political hacks that serve an unelected puppet master and who put private profit ahead of the townships welfare.

Test scores in the schools are going up, academics are improving ...

the township is approving pay-to-play development deals and standing behind lawyers that lie to them and the public

Tag earned a lot of respect as the baseball czar -- he's losing it all as Mayor.

Don't equate party politics with what Kauff, Tagliarini, and that group is doing. The Republicans in this town suck - they're dumber than Sarah Palin. The current leadership of the township is as confident as Mayor Sharpe was before he was caught.

Eli's coming Fred said...

No Cannon denials? It was Cannon pure and simple since the posts included inside knowledge and more. All the education a guy like that and he still ends up a political boss lackey. When will these people wake up? They soon shall see up close and personal the answer to that question. Get your video cameras and recording devices ready ladies and gentlemen it's going to be an informative night. By the way Kauff allows anonymous ghosted attacks but Kauff does not allow official denials. Tuesdays meeting is coming and then it hits the fan. People have had it with Kauff and the excuses by his henchmen. We who seek to oust corrupt government at the hands of Kauff have gotten to an insider or two and cannot wait until they tell what they know. Get ready Fred Elis's coming.

JUDGEMENT DAY IS COMING said...

I knew Mayor Sharpe and you are no Sharpe. Norman Kauff is a whole different class of low life scumbag. Don't get me wrong Sharpe will be back and the people of Newark would probably elect him if he was not a convicted felon. See what Mayor Fred and all the rest have to look forward to after they get released from their half-way houses. The lable CONVICTED FELON stays with you forever. Same goes for CONVICTED FELON and DISBARRED ATTORNEY for Mcarthy, Lickstein, Cannon and of course Norman Kauff.

Every day these politicians look in the mirror they need to ask themselves on importanat question. IS TODAY THE DAY THE FBI COMES KNOCKING ON MY DOOR AND TAKES ME TO JAIL?

That day cannot come soon enough.

This coah thing is only the beginning of the END OF KAUFF CONTROL. This bullshit that what Norman Kauff wants Norman Kauff gets is about to be exposed. Please save your breath all you democratic-Kauff defenders it is coming. The list of the Kauff corruption is longer then the line outside Coren's jail cell on conjigal visitors day. From what we hear every day is Coren's conjigal visit day. I think it is nice he gets along with others. Don'y you? I say good for him that Kauff controlled pedophile scumbag. How many people knew or helped him when he got jammed up is what many of us want to know? Rumors are soon to become fact. We will know really soon. Start practicing those looks of complete shock all you council people for when the truth about Kauff is exposed. It is time for Kauff to go and if he does not want to go of his own accord and take all his corruption with him then we will help him in our own special Aberdeener way.

Hijacking the topic?

Are you F'n kidding me?

Kauff has hijacked the town for twelve years and turned us taxpayers money into his personal piggy bank.

What would you like to talk about?

How about talking about the 20 + million dollars of our money going to Dave Samuels, Kauff connected lawyers and other so called professionals who don't know shit? How about countless illegal sunshine law violating meetings headed by a man who is not elected or accountable to the people he rapes and robs on a daily basis? How about illegally approving developmental projects in spite of opposition from people that Kauff does not cvare about in the least?

It is time this old man gets sent away along with all of those who do his bidding and violate their oath of office.

Sorry if you wanted to talk about someones che-chkis laying out on their driveway for you to buy at a garage sale.

I have an idea lets have a garage sale and get rid of the easily bought and pressured politicians who violate the public trust and the behest of Kauff against the taxpayers?

When that happens then you can talk about garage sales to your hearts content. Got to go catch the bus.

Just put the towers in... said...

"Just put the towers in cliffwood".
That just keeps going and going and going and going and going......
Right Norm? We are not your dumping ground Kauff and we keep telling you that. Maybe Kauff cannot squeeze enough money out of Marlboro and Manalapan so Aberdeen is still ripe for easy pay to play pickins? Not so easy anymore Norm is it with sister Mcleod and the rest of us? Don't forget people that Kauff lost Hazlet in the last election so all that wasteful study money for cme and the joke that has been our towns legal expertise is an absolute joke, is gone. Looks like times might even be tough for the politically corrupt as well with Christie heading things up. Don't cry for Kauff though he is like the eveready bunny. Kauff just keeps going and going and going and going........ Kauff maybe not going to a good place for long? Unless you count going to prison with those political bosses like him who put greed before the people. I would suggest a live tv feed be set up for the next council meeting and make sure there is an ambulance crew standing by if Kauff faints from being outed as the political hack he is. We are coming Kauff we warned you. Get ready Kauff.

Protests work said...

Time for the people of Cliffwood to take it to the streets. I suggest protesting in front of the homes of this Mr. Kauff and any and all elected or appointed officials it is said he controls. You know signs, whistles the works. Let theses peoples neighbors know the fast one they are trying to pull. Just an idea. I would show up to every meeting with sings that just say LIARS and YOU ALL LIED TO US on them. That is what they are after all just liars.

Anonymous said...

That's right... Kauff is no Mayor Sharpe, he's the pus that eaks out of a blister when you step on it. Kauff likes to hide behind elected officials and others and let them take the fall when the authorities come. He's a specialist in getting others to sign their names, others to give up their good names. When was the last time he showed up in public?

He gets Tagliarini to do his bidding;
he gets Planing Bd Chair Shenton (also head of Dem Party) to do his bidding)
He gets Cannon Jr. to do his bidding
He gets Drapkin with the sprayed on hair to do his bidding

Kauff is the friend that lets others do the dirty work while he keeps his and his wife's name on the checkbook (She is the authorized Treasurer of Kauff's party checkbook)

Kauff is one friend you want to stay away from if you don't want to lose your law license and end of selling tee shirts in a flee market.

The school budget is where it is because the Kauff/Sobel/TagliariniWeenie Regime has ushered in irresponsible development since they took over the town.

There is nothing irresponsible about paying a Superintendent what is appropriate when he got the school budget under control. We still haven't seen the municipal budget.

Council voted themselves a pay increase the last two years and now make close to $10K per year + Lauro and Vinci make another $4K for being Fire Commissioners. I thought volunteer service meant you didn't get paid! Council gave their Manager a raise last year - but they looked out for themselves first.

Are they eliminating their salaries in this year's municipal budget? Who knows -- they're afraid to show the public the sad reality they know -- that they are going to give us a whopper tax increase this year because this is their off election year.

This Council and Mayor left their ethics and commitment to public service at Airport Plaza, in the UnLaw Office of Kauff, Esq.

Kauff gets what he deserves ? said...

The above post hits it right on the nail. The sad thing is that all the named coconspirators know we know how corrupt they all are and they don't care that we know it. After all who is going to say anything? Not likely will it be the people on the inside of town hall who really know where the corrupt Kauff money comes from.
The basis for all things corrupt come from the need to take care of Kauff and his professionals. That is all that matters. The budget thing is a joke. They hide the budget, meet and discuss the budget on days they know people are busy and they know full well the voice of the people falls on deaf ears. Deaf, dumb and blind describes every member of the planning and zoning boards and the "Kauffcil" (Kauff controlled council)which is the reality for our community.

Wake up Aberdeen. It has been too late for too long now that the scum that is Kauff and his minions have lied to us. They are probably planning how to deal with the cliffwood group that is starting to scratch the surface on the lies they have been told all of these years. Gumbs don't get it done any longer and like many others Kauff will cast her aside. Look for Kauff to try and bring Ms. McLeod into the corrupt fold. Unless Kauff has seen the movie titled Diary of a Mad Black Woman Kauff will have no idea what he will be in for. Somebody video tape that meeting we could show it nationwide. We could title it White Man Gets What He Deserves For Insulting A Proud Black Woman.

Let me get this straight. Do people really think that our governing body is any different from those idiots down in Trenton?

Our idiots feed at the trough and screw things up and their answer is to either raise taxes or lay off the people who actually do all of the work. Most every town has shown the budget to the citizenry. Not in Kauffville though. Anyone remember when the last town budget was submitted and approved last year? Probably got snuck through under the veilled dark cape of Kauff. That old geezer needs to be shown the inside of Rikers and let my brothers show Norman a good time.

The budgets here the budget for Aberdeen has been printed in the paper for public consumption. At least the appropriation summaries labeled budget was printed. Like any of us know what that means. How much will my taxes go up is the answer i want printed in the paper. All the rest is smoke and mirrors and trickery. It also says that copies of the budget are available at town hall during business hours. Looking forward to a look and comment from Joey myself.

Demarest and Rubino perfect together said...

Any fireworks at the school board meeting. Did the barza group come out to hoot and hooler for their girl? Idiots all of them since they just don't know that their 15 minutes are over. Now demarest gets to sit their like a bump and back up Rubino, until she gets the decisions on her ethically challenging decisions to solicit campaign donations from employees and contractors. I guess she was missing during that part of her ethics classes she is mandated to take as a public joke. My bad public official.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Thanks for inviting me to keep in touch, Joey. I will be...

Also, was that COAH planner comment meant to be a comeback?

Because if it was, you're even more lost than I thought. I'm only here to expose you for the political hack/fraud that you are. And, I've brought that big spotlight you've unfairly shined on unwitting citizens in this town. Remember John Samaha? He's just one example of how you became the self-proclaimed "second-most hated man in Aberdeen"...

So, I'm still waiting for your response or rationalization of your incestuous relationship with Ken Aitken, John Gartley, Tom Aljian and Dr. Dick... You know, how you explain your blatant partisanship in the context of the School Ethics Act?

But, you don't have any explanation, do you? Because THE SAD TRUTH is that you're a political hack whose time is running short...

So, I'll certainly be in touch to further reveal to your readers all of your misdeeds and the political games of you and your friends. What was that you said about the rodeo clowns in the MRTA? Oh, that's right Joey, your "antics and utter incompetence would be comical if they weren’t so tragic."

So, I'll be back soon to share some more of Joey's secrets and wind down the clock on his fifteen minutes. Until then, have fun nervously passing the time Joey...

Completely off topic, but why not, every other post is.

Joey, when is it going to be mandatory for every teacher to utilize and post information to the district website? As parents we are looking for resources to go to for our children. However, the vast majority of the teachers in this district have nothing but their e-mail address on their web page. We are looking to help our children, can't the BOE and Dr.O'Malley insist teachers use the website and supply resources, homework info etc?

I'm sure it must have cost this district thousands of dollars to set up the website, and very little of it is utilized. What a waste of money!

Aberdeener said...

We've been training teachers to use the website but some teachers simply won't use it.

From a board perspective, we have to choose our battles and this one isn't very high on the list.

I plan to make several recommendations regarding the website to make it more user friendly and more useful.

As for encouraging teacher use, I'll raise the issue with the tech director and see what he suggests.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Haha, ok Joey...

I'll keep taking my medication and giving you a regular dose of your own medicine. What's that you always say?... "You can't make this stuff up," right?...

Well, I've already explained the behind-the-scenes alliances between Joey and all of his Aberdeen Republican friends, like Ken Aitken, John Gartley, and Tom Aljian.

I also explained how Joey’s champion, Dr. Dick O'Malley, is a Republican committee member in the Republican stronghold of Raritan Township, Hunterdon County. I also explained how Dr. Dick cares more about pandering to his political higher-ups, than he cares about Aberdeen's school budget.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

I also explained Joey and his Republican friends' unwavering support for Dr. Dick's massive pay increase. That's because they hope to bring Dr. Dick and his political guns to Aberdeen to take on the Democratically-controlled Township Council next year.

Apparently, however, Dr. Dick needs more enticement from Joey and the Aberdeen Republicans than just a massive pay increase. Dr. Dick told Joey that he needs a more long-term commitment. So, last month, Joey championed a contract extension for Dr. Dick.

But, Joey and his friends met with some resistance from Boardmember O’Connell from Matawan. As the newspaper article says, Mr. O’Connell “cited concerns about the superintendent’s political affiliations outside of town.” Mr. O’Connell “suggested the contract should include a clause requiring the superintendent to disclose information about campaign funds raised for his township committee seat.” “My concern here is to protect the public to make sure any funds provided to you from private businesses are made visible to this board,” O’Connell said. “That’s not required by this contract, but I think any fundraising that you do for an elected position should be made visible to this board.”
Bravo, Mr. O’Connell… I’m sure that suggestion was welcomed with open arms by the always politically-skeptical Joey Warren, right? Unfortunately, for the people of Aberdeen, WRONG (scroll to bottom). Instead, Joey supported the rushed contract extension, saying “What Mr. O’Connell is suggesting is rewriting the contract, renegotiating the contract, having the attorney review all these terms again, resubmitting it to the county and engage in all these negotiations immediately during the process of setting a budget.” Joey added, “I just hope Dr. O’Malley doesn’t find a better position in that time.”

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Just like Joey wrote about the Township’s COAH plan… “What was the rush?” Mr. O’Connell certainly wanted to know, and he was concerned about undue political influence being involved. But, Joey had no such reservations because he’s a part of the undue political influence O’Connell is talking about.
Indeed, what is the rush for Joey to give Dr. Dick everything he wants? Maybe it’s people like Ken Aitken, John Gartley, and Tom Aljian whispering in his ear, and Dr. Dick promising to help them all politically next year. But, don’t believe me (a medicated conspiracy theorist)… It’s only right here in print. And like Joey has said time and time again… you really can’t make this stuff up…

Tick Tock Tick Tock…

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Oh, and by the way, Mr. O’Connell was originally Dr. Dick’s biggest supporter. Joey lavished praise upon O’Connell for “thumping the opposition” to Dr. Dick’s appointment back then. Remember, Joey?

So, why would O’Connell be giving Dr. Dick such a hard time now, when he was such a loyal supporter back then.

Clearly, O’Connell saw some political back-room dealings he wasn’t comfortable with… Which would certainly explain his decision not to seek re-election. But, Joey is still there. Still fighting to get Dr. Dick every penny he can...

Sounds about right, huh Joey? Try not to lose sleep tonight over the coming ethics complaint and corruption charges…

I've Had Enough said...

Let's Play A Game -

I guess the real question, in the immortal words of Joey Warren, is "What was the rush?"

Mr. Warren has made a big deal about the Aberdeen council apparently "rushing" to approve an ordinance change, but he apparently had no quams about "rushing" to renew a contract that wasn't going to expire until 2012.


Again - WHAT WAS THE RUSH? Sounds like the taxpayers of Aberdeen got the royal screw by Mr. Warren.

Damnit it Mr Warren, I am a tax payer and I want answers. Who the hell do you think you are to waste my money on contract extensions during a very severe financial crisis.

Based upon everything I've read here the past few days, I'll be contacting the authorities tomorrow. I have had enough!

The Sad Spin is evidence that a nerve has been touched. Mr. kauff and his cronies were content to sit back and ignore all the postings here on the Aberdeener, until the last meeting turned into a clusterphuc and Leckstein once again opened his mouth. Hundreds of angry people attending a meeting is not where Kauff wants to be. And it was picked up in the Independent too. That's much too much!So the Sad Spin sets out (as a purported independent) to discredit the Aberdeener and all who may not buy the Kauff brand of political orthodoxy. Sad Spin you also credit the Aberdeen Republicans with far too much power than they actually have. A nerve has been touched.

Aberdeener said...

What's the beef against Dr. O'Malley? He costs less than Quinn, has saved us millions of dollars, and has improved our schools. Yeah, I voted to give him a $9,000 raise last year and a contract extension this year and I'm glad I did.

As for the custodians, we've had a chance to review the bids, we've had preliminary talks with the municipal heads regarding further budget cuts, and we need to give the vendor sufficient time to process their employees through the security checks.

The lowest bid is nearly $1.5 million less than our current costs to employ the custodians. Nothing short of a district-wide pay freeze would be enough to save their jobs.

The union refused to make any concessions that could have helped us pass the budget. It's unlikely they'll make those concessions now.

Anonymous said...

I don't read Sad Truth's comments as implying the Aberdeen Republicans have "too much power".

Rather, his comments imply that the Aberdeen Republicans have no power and, as a result, are desperate for sources of income.

What Sad Truth has uncovered here makes alot of sense. Realizing that they lack adequate finanical resources to take on the Aberdeen Dems, the Aberdeen Republicans have struck a deal with powerful republicans up north.

So the Aberdeen Republicans, through their rolly polly buddy Joey Warren, give Mr. O'Malley a nice fat contract renewal. In exchange Mr. O'Malley's and his republican buddies up north will help backroll the Aberdeen Republicans so they can take on the Dems.

Seems simple and plain as day. Unfortunately its the citizens of Aberdeen who get screwed in the process.

Kudos to Sad Truth for revealing this plan. Its so damn simple.

Anonymous said...

Well, we can rest assured that won't happen. Joey would NEVER ask his idol to take a pay cut. Joey are you planning on adding that $1.5 million to O'malley's salary? You know, since he saved it and all. Also, are any of the bidders donating to a certain town north of here's Republican club?

O'Malley came here with very little experience yet you choose to pay him the same as others with proven experience. The budget was easy to cut last year thanks to Quinns bloat, but now real experience was needed. His budget and the areas he choose to cut are going to be detrimental to this district for years to come, but you didn't give it a chance to play out. He already got his money and extension without proving a damn thing and we are going to pay for it with this budget. This argument has been made many times and you just don't get it. He has not shown great leadership and doesn't deserve what he is making.

We had a $7 million hole. The cuts were massive. We had a choice of custodians or more teachers. As it is right now going into next year, we have almost no non-tenured teachers. That's how deep the cuts were.

Anonymous said...

There Aberdeener goes manipulating the data. You gave O'Malley a $9000 raise ON TOP of the $3000 contractual increase that equals a $12000 increase or nearly a 7 % increase for a total of $185000. This was given less than 12 months ago and now you are making a 7 million dollar cut and negotiating teachers contracts. Very poor planning Joey.

Aberdeener said...

That's right - $9,000 on top of a $3,000 contractual increase. That's called merit pay. It's an incentive to perform better.

Now that communism is dead, the only place they don't believe in merit pay is in the government.

By the way, how come you didn't warn us about the $7 million hole? You had as much information as I did last June. And don't forget that if O'Malley hadn't continued cutting costs after that raise, the hole would've been bigger.

If you have ever run a business, raised children, or studied psychology, you should know the value of incentives.

more suggestions for joey the janitor slayer said...

Maybe Joey will also hire one of the soon to be fired janitors to powerwash out all of the Omalley "DNA" that has accumulated in his mouth over the last few months. It's the least you can do after all, you and your boyfriend put them out of a job.

Anonymous said...

It is not a $7 million dollar hole. One million was covered by money he had stashed in surplus and no cuts had to cover that money. Stop lying to justify poor decisions on how this budget was handled. O'Malley was the cause of the last teacher contract being settled prematurely and now we are all paying. This teachers contract is all his and has shown they can't reach any kind of agreement on anything. Inexperience is the main reason he did not deserve that "merit" pay increase. What about leadership? What about leading by example. He has not earned anyones respect, except for Chuckie, Unethical Jerry, you, and what he does for special ed. Ask Larry or Tom what they think of him now that he has been on the job a few years. Not quite the same opinion. His decisiions will hurt this district more than help and time will tell. Don't forget the big "merit" raise you gave Irons who is showing every day she is outright incompetent and has surrounded herself with assistants and assistants to assistants running up the business office payroll. This district is being mismanaged and you can't see it.

Aberdeener said...

You're saying the district was better run under Quinn?

Anonymous said...

Why do you always go back to Quinn? He sucked, that doesn't mean we could not have done better. The argument is you gave O'Malley a premature raise and he is proving that the district is being mismanged. Thats the best you can come up with to dispute all the points in the prior post. Besides we have O'Malley now, for a long time thanks to contract changes, and the only point is his leadership skills and inexperience will damage this district in the long term bases on decisions you are allowing him to make. He made cuts in many wrong areas while not touching others either because of pressure or inexperience. The same mistakes Quinn made, by the way. You will see.

I guess that can be counted as one more way he hurt the district.

Anonymous said...

Let us count the ways:
1) Raise and contract extention to an inexperienced (leader). The district will be paying over $200,000 for that position in no time.
2) Raise and tenure for BA with the jury still out. Business office salary expense out of control.
3) Cuts to the budget in areas that will greatly affect the education of our students.
4) Non cuts in areas like athletics that will hurt in the classroom.
5) Keeping the central office building open at great expense when other less expensive facilities could be used.
6) No shared sacrifice from administration or teachers. The budget still contains over 4% increases to both next year.
7) You allow thug coaches to "mentor" our students.
8) You allow the athletic director to also be football coach at a very high salary and stipend hurting other students who do not participate in football.
9) Last years budget was a no brainer. This year because of state cuts the decisions your leader makes and you support could have a long lasting affect that could hurt students for years to come.
10) Dead wood administrators still remain at high salaries. Too many administrators. Tenure is no excuse. A good leader would demand excellence.
11) Want more?

ANSWER TOI THE RIDDLE IS: All of the Kauff professionals who want to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars (illegally) in fees over the projects they want to put by us by forcing it down our throats with lies, corruption and unethical (soon to be investigated)legal advice.

All of you reading this should have a nice weekend. We can all be sure Kauff and his professionals will be in SUNSHINE LAW violating meetings over the weekend. You see Kauff and all of the rest need to come up with a plan as to what to do about the next council meeting and what lies they will try to tell all of us then.

Having fun yet Coach fred? How about you Mr. Laura, Lawyer Cannon and Margeret Montone. By the way is Margeret Montone related to the mess of trucks that go up and down my street with the same name on the side of trucks and equipment?

Leveling the ground??????? Anyone missing that came out against this latest Kauff F THE PEOPLE WE TELL WE CARE ABOUT THEM developmental approval?

That is like telling the planning board and zoning board that an area should only be designated for highway commercial or light industrial until Kauff makes a call and all of a sudden POOF various professionals change their minds and the zoning board restrictions and approved uses for the exact same properties that the Kauff professionals just said should only be used something else exclusively become something else more suited to Kauff. I know it is just more Kauff conspiracy with no proof? But how do the apartments by the GSP that should only be this many floors and cover only this much land area become taller and cover more land and mysteriously be less able to protected by emergency services. But don't worry the FD will get new trucks. They should have held out for a fire truck like some say Spalleiro was going to give for his corrupt Kauff approvals
on 516. But I know, I know it's just another unproven Kauff conspiracy. With of course no proof. Then again all you would have to do is go look at the number of floors on the apartments or the previous zoning approvals for those properties that they are trying to ram down our throats. An educated taxpayer is a terrible thing is it not Kauff?

How about explaining that Coach Fred?

I'm addicted to Kauff said...

I cannot help myself i am addicted to the aberdeener. I am also addicted to all things related to the scumbag that is our won little Don Corleone our Norman Kauff Esquire.

Please GOD forgive me.

This man should be hounded like F'n O.J. Simpson for what he and his professional scumbags are doing to us people in Cliffwood. They lie and lie and lie again and the problem is they take an awful lot of our money to get nothing done on the developmental stage. Years ago they showed us designs plans with trees and parks for kids to play in at the old American Can site but nothing. I was also told recently that the town engineers wrote themselves a grant close to $400,000.00 for pollution removal from a site near town hall. Is that like overexagerating a problem and getting paid to oversee the repair that the same engineers said was needed? I'm so confused. Nice work if you can make it up i guess?

Maybe i overreacted by comparing Norman Kkauff to O.J. so if i did i apologize. My personal apologies to O. J. Simpson that is for being associated in such a posting with a real low life scumbag like Norman Kauff Esquire.

My bad!

That is funny i don't care what you say. Truthful but funny.

On the other hand the fact that Dr. O has brought significant improvement, fiscal acoountability and repaired the major mess left by barza and that blithering idiot Quinn, is no small feat.

The one question I still can't figure out is why people are complaining when the district pays Dr. O. 185k to run an entire school district with a 64M dollar budget, yet no one complains that we pay the midget snake in the grass and complete and total low life rat bastard and consumate liar Joel Glastein 135K a a year to undermine the school district, to say nothing of the money he costs us in lawsuits and buyouts. Right Joel?

I would be remiss if I failed to mention Coach *maroon and steal is mine all mine, and i'll run it anyway i want to, even after i have been told for years that i put the district under financial impropriety watch* Martucci 145K a year. Can anyone tell me how that is fair or just?

Get real people back to basics is where we need to go. The reason i know that is because Kauff is not involved with the school system, other then the Kauff controlled town council and the not so secret school board, did i mention the not so secret deal that has been made year after year on what the council won't do after the budget is defeated to mess things up and not lose any votes plan.

Politics makes the world go round and it is making Matawan and Aberdeen go round and round just like when you flush a toilet.

There is a Kauff refernce for you all Kauff all the time. Each post should have at least one. By the way i like the OJ thing. Type in the words Kauff and scumbag or ass--- and see what comes up. That is a freebie for all you Kauff haters.

Please enjoy the day said...

What a beautiful day it will be today. I thought i and my girl would get up, grab the bikes and head north up to the Catskills.
With all that is going on i thought what the hell out into the

Just before i go i had to log on and encourage all of you to enjoy the day for its great weather and want to personally assure you that i know that Kauff will still be Kauff when we get back, his controlled leadership will still be corrupt and easily led, corrupt detrimental development will still be lied about and people will still be attacking Joey W. when we get back.

So if you leave the blog to day like me be assured that when you leave Aberdeen and Kauff are in your rear view don't worry about Aberdeen it will still be corrupt, mismanaged and a den of political evil, upon your return.

All is right in Kauff's world. For now?

Right Norman you low life scumbag?

I'm outta here as well said...

Come on people it would not be a corrupt, tax payer soaked for all their money and quality of life, if we were not reminded of the Aberdeen Pay to Play Plague that is Norman Kauff Esquire. I agree go out and do something today. After all how much damage can Norman kauff Esquire do with town hall closed for the weekend? I forgot town hall is never closed to Norman Kauff Esquire. I forgot Norman Kauff Esquire has all the keys to the building and can orchestrate all his Pay to Play corruption from his residence on Injustice Lane. My bad!

I'm out of here too.

Keep it up on the council. The ones that were in before need to go, and the new ones haven't done anything to prove they deserve to stay.

Its also nice to see that the Aberdeener has been exposed as a puppet of his party, he is also a politician, subserviant to his political masters, hoping to be rewarded by them in the future.

There is no such thing as a good politician.

I agree. It is a wonderful day out.

I am so happy to see that Joey Warren has been exposed for the political hack that he is.

He is scum like all the rest. The way he is allowing Pay For Play to funnel into the pockets of the Aberdeen Republicans is unbelieveable!


I'm so happy to see things finally exposed on here. Now I can go outside and enjoy myself.

Sherlock Holmes said...

Where is all of this money that O'Malley is wheeling in? Pay to Play is the way the Democrats in town do business. How do the Republicans get the PAY when they have no way of delivering the PLAY?

Just looked at their Elec reports, I cannot find any Hunterdon Cty or Raritan Twp money.

Took a look at the 2010 budget for Aberdeen. Whoa! a 20% increase on the local tax levy, 2 million bucks. They tell us the schools are the problem, because they believe everyone is an idiot. Maybe they are right?

This council is no different than the last one, only the names have changed.

Someone ought to give the O'Malley conspiracy poster a shovel, because he is up to his ears in his own bullshit.

Where can I get some good land in this town for a dollar?

Duke said...

I agree with Sherlock. The Sad Truth should be calling itself "The Red Herring". Divert attention away from the corruption of the all-Democratic town council by concocting a ficticious "conspiracy" involving the Aberdeen Republicans (who have no history of wheeling). The Dems have a history of pay to play, wheeling and developer money, i. e., Kara Homes, PRC, Bocra. Sad Truth sounds like a certain Dem hack "journalist" who's paper folded not too long ago.

KAUFF AND CO. $$$ NEED TO GO said...

TOWN HALL GIVES YOU A COPY. ON LINE POSSIBLY. PAPERED ON NORMS CEILING ABOVE HIS BED AS HE LOOKS UP FROM THE MATTRESS HE PUTS ALL HIS ILL GOTTEN GAINS INTO. IT IS TIME THE TAXPAYERS RAILED AGAINST KAUFF AND HIS CONSPIRATORS. IT IS ALSO TIME FOR PEOPLE WHO WORK WITHIN TOWN HALL TO SPEAK OUT PUBLICLY CONCERNING THE CORRUPTION AND MISUSE OF TAXPAYER FUNDS ALL TO KEEP KAUFF AND THE GANG FAT AND GLEEFUL THAT THEY HAVE BEEN IN POWER AND FLEECING THE PUBLIC ALL OF THESE YEARS WITHOUT ANY SIGN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. UP UNTIL NOW THAT IS. LITTLE SECRET FOR YOU NORM. NO BS THEY ARE COMING FOR YOU. 100%.

Aberdeener said...

I'll be posting a copy of the preliminary budget this week. The preliminary budget does call for a $2 million budget increase.

shame on kauffs council said...

A $2,000,000.00 increase? How much of that is for cme and the kauff controlled and beholding professionals or that was casued by the pension contributions deferrals and that whole *smoke and mirrors magic show kauff engineered last year* to ensure an election win? They did not make the payment last year and you can bet that was at a great cost that they will not want to show us, little people. That and other kauff crap was used last year to put the election in the win colum? What did all that mystery acounting cost that our little kauff engineered for the election year move cost us going forward? $300,000.00, $400,000.00 or more?

It is so obvious that all management *kauff* decisions are based upon always winning the elections to maintain the corrupt kauff power hold. It is the most important *corrupt* thing driving the budget proposals to be zerod out for kauff to be able to keep power each election season. If i was a town employee i would get in the face of vin and the others and tell them to stop playing with them like my cat plays with string.

On that idea will furloughs or lay offs like other towns have done mean that vin and the boys along with kauff will be doing all the work around town? How about vin and the rest of the kauff gang does just like the school board and not take a salarie at all. What would that generous gesture save the town? Got to be at least one employee who actually services the town that could be saved. Think of it the kauff council could just truly be the dedicated to the taxpayers and not the money grubbing, professional fee insuring and kauff money protecting trash that they really seem to be?

Anyone know how much did the salaries go up for council people since kauff took control? So many questions that leadership won't answer and so much money in the *kauff's corrupt and oh so greedy and unaccountable all based on lies inducing plan against us vocal taxpayers who are publicly and loudly against the kauff rewarding *pay to play* development that kauff wants to force down our throats all at the expense of us the taxpayers. Or as we keep hearing those people on that side of town. We pay taxes to over here you corrupt people who are supposed to represent us little peoiple and not special interests.

So much of a disappointment this change in leadership has been. Different names same corrupt kauff control and profits for his people.

I am ashamed to live here.

Everyone keeps talking about the janitors. Yes it is horrible but they also plan to eliminate the transportation department. This means going to local private companies. Havent they been in the news because of problem drivers? We want these people driving our children to school?!?!

Stop the freebies said...

We are spolied and we have been coddled by our elected officials who have given people almost everything they want. Wanting something does not make it finacially prudent. Janitors and transportation changes is a wise financial decision just on the points of healthcare, insurance and benefits costs alone. Privatization allows for a seperate transportation bid process and a statement like was made above is typical that we want our people to drive the busses. Once again we are spoiled and need to realize that the financial restrictions and changes being brought about by Gov. Christie is long overdue. Just look at municipal police raises and the step process that can take some raises negotiated and combined with steps can often put raises at 8 or 9 % quickly. The police and fire pension systems are the next big battleground that Gov. Christie will take on. That is also long overdue. The next thing or actual first thing he should take on is all of the repetative and supposed need to take care of the less fortunate among us that is so often used by politicians to ensure voting blocks by those too comfortable with being taken care of with every free and minimally requirement programs that soak the middle class at an extreme costs. Investigate the fraud and waste in those programs and you would never have to raise taxes ever again. people need to be accountable and work. If you pay people to stay home for generations they will fight like hell to continue to be taken care of by their daddy, the government check that arrives every other week. Many are used to being taken care of and will put all of thei energy to stay that way rather then putting that energy into finding and keeping a job. Fix the societal freebies and everyone else will be able to survive.

I agree make them work too said...

Wow that one won't be well liked by the needy among us. Too bad we cannot give everything to people who have gone long past giving up or contributing to society. Our elected officials created this problem and sustain themselves with it. That is where people need to put their anger and vent at those whose thirst for power and corrupt greed costs us so dearly.

Freedom has a cost but... said...

Give us your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to be free.

Those are some of the words on the statue of liberty.

We cannot afford to do all of that for everyone else any longer.

It is not un-american it is the reality of a changing time, corrupt leadership that puts self preservation, money, influence and far more in front of the people they swear an oath to protect and serve the people, us taxpayers.

This is bigger then the Arizona decision that will be the liberal outcry for a while. It is just economics plain and simple. When a man can get off a plane form certain country oversees at JFK claim political disidence and can then be on welfare, medicare and every other social program, that is a cost borne by too many for too few who in turn do not add to the economy they take from.

Try and imigrate to Australia and many other countries around the globe and see how far you get.

Times change, costs change and freedom has an expensive price. For those who have not paid the price for freedom or whom have been just carried by the hard working members of society, that is what needs to change in its entirety.

That change starts with the leadership that puts its own self in front of the majority of us who pay the bills.

Reality pure and simple.

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Hey Joey,

I bet you thought I'd gone away, but I've just been doing some more research…

Now, last time I posted Joey called me delusional. He denied that he and his Aberdeen Republican friends’ unwavering support for Dr. Dick O’Malley's massive pay increase had anything to do with politics. That it was merely coincidence that Joey’s champion, Dr. Dick, is a Republican committee member in the Republican stronghold of Raritan Township, Hunterdon County. Joey said it was ridiculous to suggest that Dr. Dick would use his North Jersey political connections to influence elections here in Aberdeen…

Well, former BOE member O’Connell didn’t think it was so outlandish when he suggested Dr. Dick should disclose his political contributors to the MARSD. O’Connell’s suggestion was vehemently opposed by Joey. That’s because Joey wanted to rush Dr. Dick’s contract extension through before May 21, 2010, because otherwise Dr. Dick would have to contribute to his health benefits by law. Just another favor to Dr. Dick from Joey and his Aberdeen Republican pals…

THE SAD TRUTH said...

But, back to the issue at hand… Is it ridiculous to suggest that Dr. Dick would use his Hunterdon County political connections to influence elections here in Aberdeen?

Shockingly (although not to me), Dr. Dick has already used his North Jersey friends to help at least one Republican get elected in Aberdeen. Take the case of Joey’s friend, Dr. Jeff Delaney. Dr. Delaney is a registered Republican, and on April 20, 2010, he was re-elected to the MARSD Board of Education. Just like Aberdeen Republicans Ken Aitken, John Gartley, and Tom Aljian, Joey wholeheartedly endorsed Dr. Delaney during the election, calling him a “friend” and extolling his “amazing personal story.”

Along with Joey, Dr. Delaney fell in line and helped rush through rush Dr. Dick’s contract extension. In fact, he was essentially the deciding vote in a 5-3 split. So, how did Dr. Dick reward Dr. Delaney?

Aberdeen residents may remember getting only two pieces of literature during the school board election season. One was a “Budget Newsletter” from Dr. Dick and the other was a campaign postcard from Dr. Delaney. Well, I’ve done some homework and found that both of these pieces of literature were mailed by the same printing company, Alphagraphics in Hillsborough, New Jersey. Not surprisingly, this Alphagraphics franchise is owned by a Flemington resident, Tom Hopkins. Where is Flemington? For those of you not familiar with North Jersey geography, Flemington is the county seat of Hunterdon County, and is bordered on all sides by Dr. Dick’s hometown of Raritan Township. So fellow Aberdeen residents, I ask you… Why is Aberdeen school board election literature being mailed from Hunterdon County? And, even more importantly, where did Dr. Delaney get the money to undertake a Township-wide mailing?

THE SAD TRUTH said...

Now, this is where I took a page out of your playbook, Joey. According to New Jersey law, a candidate must file campaign contribution reports if he spends more than $4,000 total or receives more than $300 from any one source. Notably, it makes no difference if a candidate spends his own money because, by law, such funds must go through the candidate’s campaign account and be reported just the same. Moreover, if a candidate spends more than $1,200 at one time between April 7, 2010 and April 20, 2010, then he must also file a report within 48 hours under New Jersey law.

Now, I received two of Dr. Delaney’s postcards at my house on April 16, 2010. If he mailed his postcards to every registered voter in Aberdeen, then it must have cost more than $1,200. In fact, it likely cost more than $4,000. So then, where are Dr. Delaney’s election reports?

I checked. The answer is that after registering and opening his campaign account, Dr. Delaney failed to file a single report explaining how he paid for a Township-wide election mailing. A mailing that was sent to Aberdeen voters from Hunterdon County by Dr. Dick’s neighbor, Tom Hopkins.

Now, Joey has called me a “medicated conspiracy theorist”, but I invite anyone to check the above facts. You’d think political-skeptic Joey would be all over such electoral shenanigans. He always is when it comes to the Aberdeen Democrats. But here, Joey and his Aberdeen Republican friends are neck-deep in Dr. Dick and Dr. Delaney’s corrupt bargain. That’s why Joey is keeping his mouth shut and trying to deny THE SAD TRUTH…

So, Joey I ask you again. Can YOU hear ME now? Because the farther down the rabbit hole we go, the deeper you and your friends will end up buried…

Tick Tock Tick Tock…
