Sunshine Watch

Given the town council’s proclivity to maintain two sets of agendas, one for public disclosure and one for its council members, I thought it might be fun to occasionally shine the light on discrepancies between the two. So, here’s another example of a sunshine violation.

The council’s posted agenda for February 2, 2010 states:

RESOLUTION NO. 2010-45 – BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Council that it hereby awards engineering services for South River Metals Remediation.

The minutes for that same meeting state:

RESOLUTION NO. 2010-45 - BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Council that it hereby authorizes Emergency Temporary Appropriation in the amount of $350,000.

RESOLUTION NO. 2010-46 - BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Council that it hereby authorizes three proposals for engineering services associated with the Former South River Metal Products Site not to exceed $160,000.

RESOLUTION NO. 2010-47 - BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Council that it hereby authorizes emergency agreement for remediation of a tank on the South River Metals Site.

So, resolution 2010-45 became resolution 2010-46 with the tidy little sum of $160,000 added for “engineering services”, which is just a euphemism for CME, the council’s largest political contributor.

Then, two more resolutions were magically added to the agenda. One is another CME project for the “emergency” tank remediation at South River Metals, a precursor to constructing the new senior center. This is the same place where Councilwoman Gumbs famously declared in fall 2005, “If all goes according to plan, the development could be completed within the next 18 months.”

Perhaps the development’s tardiness prompted the town council to declare an “emergency” without time to put it on the public agenda.

Then, there’s the other emergency that didn’t allow for advance notice – a $350,000 “Emergency Temporary Appropriation", seemingly to pay for it all. The insertion of “temporary” suggests the town is banking on a March, 2009, promised grant from our great but near bankrupt state. Well, good luck with that.

We’d know more except these three resolutions are also the only ones whose full text isn’t posted on the town website.

Considering the senior residence has been in the works for eight years and we still haven’t done so much as dig a hole in the ground, it’s nice to know Aberdeen Township still feels the sense of urgency to allocate hundreds of thousands of dollars to its largest political patron without advance public notice to getter done.

FRONT PAGE IS LAUGHABLE said...

Politicos are lying to us over and over again and they really think they are doing something to benefit the town and its taxpayers. Now this grand idea of a big development for Anchor. THAT IS JUST MORE NORMY BULLSHIT!

Nothing our Normy touches ever happens. Six years my mother waits to get a senior place near town hall and NOTHING. Cliffwood does not want low income projects and they are lied to over and over again without any shame. Hwy. 34 gets more housing units along the highway and they know 34 is crowded enough already.

But best yet our Normy and his puppet Coach Tag make us think that this Anchor Glass thing is going to happen. Sure it will? They even put it in the newsapaper with a front page story befit with pictures and diagrams of THEIR IDIOTIC LUNACY AND DREAMS THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN.

In a pigs eye that will happen at Anchor. No pig reference insult intended to any of my Hebrew brothers and sisters.

I read that story on the bus to work this morning and the driver told me that my laughing was disturbing the other passengers. That is what I think of this latest Normy plan.

IT IS LAUGHABLE!

NORMY IS LAUGHABLE?

COUNCIL IS LAUGHABLE?

Never going to happen said...

Sunshine? Sunshine? Sunshine laws?

Don't exist in this town. Not under Kauff that is. What these scum deserve is a hot white spotlight in an interoigation room like in the good old days. A couple smacks and a telephone book to the head and elsewhere would get them to turn states evidence. Drapwig would fold first. He would sing like a canary as soon as the authorities swoop in and knock on his door. You can bet that Kauff knows Drapwig is the weakest link in the political corruption legacy he tries to sustain. The shere numbers of apartments and the costs to clean the place up makes Kauffs dream our nightmare. This Kauff dream on Cliffwood Avenue much like everything else they try to do will never see one shovel go into the ground. It is all just to make the thieves of C.M.E. happy and to keep supplying Kauff with his ill gotten gains. Looks like Kauff is expecting the 2011 campaign to be a costly one so he is revving up the C.M.E. fee machine way in advance. Politics in Aberdeen is just leadership with a loaded gun at someones head. Us taxpayers are the ones with the gun pressed up against our heads and I don't like the feeling. Kauff is holding the muzzle up close to my skin and all I can hope is that the gun malfunctions and explodes into his face. That would be true justice to me. I agree with the above posting. Don't hold your breath that this dreamscape will every happen. Obama will be a leader of men before that thing ever gets built. They are both jokes. Really bad jokes. F U Norman Kauff.

SOS Aberdeen said...

Sunshine watch? Don't you mean vampire watch? Kauff and company are all bloddsucking night creatures that do their dirty deeds under the cover of the night. That is of course with the rare exception of dimly lit parking lots where Kauff shakes down prospective developers seeking his oh so costly and thoroughly corrupt kauffdevelopmentalapproval or the Kauff ble$$ing that is.

That approval and of course hundreds of thousands if not millions in ill gotten charges from CM&E and various lying lawyers gets you that approval.

Kauff calls it "F the taxpayers".

This year Kauff has a whole new crowd of characters to puppet to F up our lives.

Our leadership is a joke said...

Hear hear! I agree the council and there handler are total scum. Do they have any idea how many kids will come out of these new houses. $14,000 each is what cost our council has put onto us. The school board better go to the next council meeting and help us in the County Road area stop these money grabbing housing projects. Notice how none of them are in Strathmore. Of course not.

SUCK UP ALERT SIGHTING AT THE COURT JESTER. TOOK MY DAUGHTER AND HER FRIENDS TO THE BOWLING ALLEY AND HAD TO HANG OUT FOR AN HOUR OR SO. SO I WENT IN FOR A BITE AT THE BAR.

Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do to keep your $60k + job as town ball buster.

N Section Joe said...

I have known Fred Tagliarini going back thirteen years and have worked with him and relaxed with him on many occasions over the years. Yes I was at the Court Jester last night and sat not far from the front entrance. As Fred and his wife came in we said hello as people who have known each other do. If my critics had such friends or close associates you would know that I am sure.

The rest as reported in the two posts above is ignorantly imagined by the posting at 8:56 6/11/10 and even more ignorantly by the idiot at 9:44 on 6/11/10. I certainly hope you two have better things to do today then to very weakly try to embarass people.

The next time you are at the bar 8:56 stop by and I will buy you a beer. As for the idiot at 9:44 feel free to call me at the oiffice and I will seek permission to have you spend the whole day with me and see if you would come back to work the next day. As I have stated I love my job and no it is not all sugar and spice but I am very proud and feel that my various duties serve the great majority of businesses and home owners well. I can also assure you it is nowhere near your derogartory terms either unless of course you were one of the people I deal with routinely who do not listen to the courtesies, warnings, directives, laws, ordinances and codes which I monitor.

But of course you would not know that sitting behind your keyboard hiding. Take me up on my offer or shut up. It is obviously far too easy for you to stay hidden rather then come out and see firsthand that which you know nothing about.

Have an Aberdeen day.

PS: As I often say I will never not defend what I do in my position and the responsibilities of that position.

Take 540 housing units add 120 housing units and then add 63 housing units.

What do you get when you add all those numbers together?

You get 723 housing units

Probably a minimum of 400 students added to the school system

And you can be damn sure that CM&E, Kauff, Council, Lawyers and asorted other leeches that surround Kauff will all get paid off.

That is life in Aberdeen Kauff style.

I agree f you N.K. and his scum

confused cliff said...

I do not deny any of this does not have any merit.

I have read about NK on here for several years.

If what is going on in Aberdeen is wrong - why is nothing being done by the state?

If all of the contracts to CME are party contribution favors, where is the state investigation?

I am sure at least ONE person who reads this blog went and alerted someone at the state level?

And nothing? No investigation? NO questions?

I dont get it. If this housing prject - WHICH WAS PREDICTED BY SOMEONE MONTHS BACK IF THE DEMS WERE ELECTED AS A LAST DITCH GET RICH PROJECT ALL INVOLVED - how is nothing being done?

FIREWORKS? THERE WILL BE SOME FIREWORKS OVER THESE DEVELOPMENTS. THIS GET RICH QUICK AND FILL THE DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN COFFERS FOR 10 YEARS SCHEME IS GOING TO CAUSE SOME FIREWORKS FOR SURE. IT MAY NOT BE AT TUESDAY NIGHTS COUNCIL MEETING BUT YOU CAN BE DAMNED SURE WHNE THIS DEVELOPMENTAL MAGIC SHOW THAT IS FILLED WITH POLITICAL TRICKERY, POLITICAL ILLUSION AND POLITICAL SMOKE AND MIRRORS. IT WILL SOON START TO BE SEEN FOR WHAT IT IS TO THE TAXPAYERS OF ABERDEEN. THIS DEVELOPMENT PLAN IS LAUGHABLE, RUSHED, CALCULATED TO FAIL AND WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING CLOSE TO REALITY. THIS IS HOW IT HAS PLAYED OUT MANY TIMES BEFORE IN ABERDEEN. WHEN I LIVED IN OLD BRIDGE I REMEMBER THEM TELLING US ABOUT THE PROJECTS BY LAKERIDGE THAT WERE TO BE BUILT IN ABERDEEN. IT NEVER HAPPENED BUT WE CAN ALL BE SURE TAX MONIES WERE SPENT FOR A WHOLE LOT OF ANALYSIS AND OTHER THINGS IN THE PROCESS AND NOT ONE SHOVEL WENT INTO THE GROUND AND NOT ONE BRICK WAS LAID. THIS LATEST SUPPOSED PROJECT PROPOSAL WILL HOWEVER MAKE MANY POLITICALL COCKROACHES AND LEECHES A LOT OF MONEY FOR SOMETHING THAT SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN. HOW CAN YOU TAKE PROPERTY THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES, OFFICE SPACE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY MUCH NEEDED RATEABLES AND TURN IT OVER TO QUESTIONABLE DEVELOPMENTAL PARTIES? I SAY QUESTIONABLE DEVELOPMENTAL PARTIES WHOSE TRACK RECORD FOR SUCCESS IS TO SAY THE LEAST VERY QUESTIONABLE? AS AN EXAMPLE WHERE IS THIS COMPANIES PLANS FOR NEIGHBORING HOLDEL. SO WHERE ARE THEIR PLANS FOR THE OLD BELL LABS PROPERTY IN HOLMDEL GOING AFTER SO MUCH PUBLICITY? WILL THE SAME COMPANY PUT UP THE MONEY FOR ALL FEES, STUDIES AND MORE THAT PROJECTS LIKE THIS CAUSE JUST TO BE CONSIDERED TO BE ABLE TO HAPPEN? AS A RESIDENT CLOSE TO THE CLIFFWOOD AVENUE PROJECT LISTED IN THE NEWSPAPER LAST WEEK I HAVE TO ASK ONLY ONE QUESTION. IS LEADERSHIP IN ABERDEEN OUT OF THEIR COTTON PICKING MINDS? THIS AREA IS INUNDATED WITH TRAFFIC ON A ROUTINE BASIS NEVER MIND ADDING 660 MORE PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE INTO MY AREA. BE HERE AND TRY AND GET TO THE TRAIN STATION ON TIME WHEN THE HIGHWAY FLOODS OVER. THE SCHOOLS IS THE NEXT THING TO BE CONSIDERED WITH A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF CHILDREN BEING AVAILED TO THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. WILL THESE DEVELOPERS ADD ONTO OUR SCHOOLS TO PUT THEIR CHILDREN? THE COSTS OF THESE SUPPOSED C.O.A.H. OBLIGATIONS AS LIED ABOUT BY OUR TOWN ATTORNEY IS ALSO JUST MORE SMOKE AND MIRRORS HAVING TO SUPPOSEDLY BE SATISFIED POLITICALLY. THIS WHOLE THING IS INSANE AND WILL OPPRESS THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY OF ABERDEEN TO BENEFIT THE POLITICAL FEW. IF THE COMMERCIAL AREAS STAYED COMMERCIAL AREAS COULD THEY BUILD THESE SUPPOSEDLY C.O.A.H. NEEDED HOMES ON SUCH A PROPERTY OR PROPERTIES? RATEABLES IS THE ANSWER FOR OUR TAX PROBLEMS NOT GET RICH QUICK AND SCREW THE TAXPAYERS TRICKERY FROM OUR SUPPOSED MAGICIAN LEADERSHIP. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD FOR FIVE YEARS NOW THAT SENIOR HOUSING WAS COMING AND MY MOM WANTED TO MOVE IN BEFORE SHE DIED. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN I TOLD MY MOM AGAIN LAST WEEK. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT DEVELOPERS HAVE BEEN THREATENED AND SHOOKDOWN BY THE SAME PEOPLE WHO SUPPOSEDLY CONTROL THIS WHOLE SCHEME. AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY POLITICIANS IN NEW JERSEY ARE SAID TO BE ABLE TO HIDE UNDER THE BELLY OF A COCKROACH WITH PLENTY OF ROOM. THEY ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE ON EARTH. ABERDEENS POLITICAL LEADERSHIP IS SCREWING US AND THEY EXPECT NOTHING FROM THE TAXPAYERS. TAXPAYERS WHO THEY FEEL ARE TOO BUSY TRYING TO TREAD WATER TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS ECONOMY. THIS LATEST DEVELOPMENTAL PLAN WILL DOOM OUR COMMUNITY. I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR OVER TEN YEARS. IF THIS GOES THROUGH ME AND MINE ARE OUT. FINALLY TO MISSES GUMBS I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE LETTING THIS HAPPEN IN OUR COMMUNITY WITHOUT ASSURANCES AND MONIES UP FRONT BANKED TO COVER COSTS IF THE PLANS FAIL. YOU WILL HAVE TO EXPLAIN YOURSELF FOR SELLING OUT OUR COMMUNITY AND THE DAMAGE THIS WILL CAUSE ALL OF US WHO SUPPORTED YOU. THIS WHOLE THING IS A NIGHTMARE THAT I CANNOT WAKE UP FROM.

F U Normy said...

What no highlighted in blue responses from Councilman Cannon or Drapwig? Did Kauff lay down the law against our corrupt leadership responding to allegations, insinuations and outright proof of our local leaderhsips corrupt activities? As for the lying lawyers serving Aberdeen it is all to telling that Coach Fred and the other new leadership members have not asked for the lying Lawyers to replaced or sanctioned. That is corruption and it is all loud and clear that the status quo is corruption through and through Normy style. The entire leadership of Aberdeen is bought and paid for by Normy. F U Normy! And your little lap dog Vinnie Vinci too.

Sadly wrong. My time is just about up in this town. My blue highlights, aka "links,” clearly had no effect. Dr. Dick is still a step away from being outright corrupt. Dr. Delaney has still failed to file a single report despite the fact that we know it cost at least $1,200 to undertake his mailing. And losers like you, Ken Aitken, John Gartley, and Tom Aljian are still making corrupt bargains with Dr. Dick and attacking the Aberdeen Democrats from behind partisan-hack Joey's smokescreen.

I'm done. You win. Come July 1st, I’m done, and I've decided to do something better with my time… Before I end up a dead cremudgeon as well, like the original TRUTH...

Anonymous said...

It seems that Greggy knows how much it costs to do a post card mailing, $1200.
I assume that is the cost they tell CME to contribute for each one of their 10 or so mailings the Aberdeen Democrats send every 2 years. And you'd think they'd get a discount with somebody that owns a print shop... But what does Greggy know? He just moved into town in August just so he could run for office...

Hey N Section Joe, Can you give a summons to the school district for not clearing the large amounts gravel and dirt off of the sidewalk in front of Lloyd Road School (by the front road entrance, the walk along Lloyd Road).It's completely covered and supposed to be passable by people even in wheelchairs and the elderly. This is from cars driving over the curb to pass cars turning onto Ivy Hill Drive. How is no one in charge seeing this? It's right in front of the school! Get them to fix it from happening again also.

Joey I would've thought that you might've taken care of this internally being that it's in your neighborhood and your position on the board.

People would not go after Nsection if he did not PONTIFICATE on every subject - point fingers - and mention names of people who are public figures like him.

Heck - face facts - you could pay an officer overtime to ticket the train station and hire a part timer to see whose grass it too high and it would be less than his 60k PLUS pension and benefits. BUT HEY - who is counting....


If you open you mouth all the time - someone is bound to want it shut.

Exactly, I think HE wants it shut, cause they alrteady gave the train station to the class 2s. What's next?

God forbid people like joe have an opinion or pontificate. Is all he does for the town is the train station and monitor grass. I don't think so. As for names of public officials the ones i see him point out are on the school board. Does he not have the right as a taxpayer to do so. Because he works for the town does he have to not discuss what he sees on the school board as being a problem or mispending of monies. So many questions for cliffy and another anonymous poster who don't know what the joe or any of the rest of us really do. I work with him and he does do the train lot not the class 2 officers cliffy. He does tell people to maintain their properties and a whole lot more. Many of us do far more then what we got hired for. This is not mayberry and people like us work hard for people like cliff and anonymous so they can throw there stones. But since cliffy and anonymous know everything i guess i'm done with them. We who work for towns expect people like cliffy to criticize us. You see they know everything. Keep pontificating joe. Stop by the garage joe.

Coah is crap excuse for Kauff said...

The liefest that doubles for the bimonthly Aberdeen Township Council Meeting should be just about over as I post this. We can all be sure it was just more lies and questionably controlled and politically corrupt actions were taken to ensure the ratship laden CM&E dynasty is Kauff preserved.

That is all but certain to have occured this evening under Mayor Tagliareni or as we call him Kauff's number one Mayoral Pinnochio.

The COAH crap that they keep trying to feed us is just more Kauffcrap. How can they even think of telling us that they have to do this overdevelopment and low income projects in my area and elsewhere with no low income at all? How can they also continue to lie to us that some other bigger and more damaging COAH plan would be forced upon us when COAH is being changed from top to bottom?F'n liars each and everyone of them these scum are for certain. Let them explain how when most every other town in the entire state is waiting for Governor Christie's changes and the new standards and processes to be worked out. Why does our supposed leadership have to rush this overdevelopment through under that low life Norman Kauff. The fact that the head scumbag in charge Norman Kauff has his mitts in the mix is insulting to no end. Everything is done just to fill the campaign coffers of the Demokauff party.

I didnt say anything bad about Joe M and his job performance.

It you read - you illiterate punk - I said that Joe is a target because of his 1000 word opinions on 1000 topics and comes off like he is all knowing and better than most. This includes attacks on others who work in town just like him.

I also said that his train ticketing could be done for OT by an officer and a part timer could do his ordinace work with out pension and benefits paid to them to save the town money. Those are not attacks - those are facts.

Here is the attack - I am annon and so is 95% of people on here including regulars who post annonymously from time to time....

You know what JM could do - drive down to CBeach and see how it has been repaired or NOT repaired since that terrible Noreaster 3 months back that tore apart the dune that has not been replaced waiting for the next storm....

If everything people say on here is true why does no one do anything? I am sure if Kauff reads this blog he is laughing at all you "blow hards".

anonymous for a reason said...

So if we get rid of the code guy and let a police officer do the job on overtime at 75 bucks an hour instead that makes sense. No way does that make sense. Then we are supposed to hire a part time person for code work. At what cost for that. I don't think that is smart at all. I then have to ask who would do all of the other jobs he or the rest of us do. Most of us wear many hats under one paycheck. I am not complaining it is what we do and that always goes unnoticed and too often unappreciated. Get real people I love how Cliffy and a couple others go after a guy who works and god forbid has an opinion on 65percent of the taxes used in education. Also most times Joe is most vocal on school board issues as a town resident and taxpayer. He also identifies himself and is not anonymous like the attackers. Just like all who attack and try to embarass him for god forbid caring or actually doing the job. I agreee with most everything he says. I really agree with what he has said about the costly mistakes and messes left by former school leaders. They are thankfully gone and it seems things are getting better. It also seems that the couple of joe attackers have all the answers so I hope to see you few run for the school board or council next election. Let joe do his job or better yet go talk to him and see all he does for the town. One final point why with all of the town employees is Joe the only one that should be replaced. A few posts back someone asks Joe to do something about a sidewalk by the school. Now someone wants him to do something about the beaches. Don't you think the school and town pay people far more than Joe and that is there job to do that. Joe is one guy and he does not have responsibilities over everything. Why not call the school district or a local do nothing politician and ask about the sidewalks or the beach. Think about it.

It's in front of a school, yeah, that's not important to have a safe area. Please learn how to read and stop exaggerating, I said "large amount of dirt and gravel" , not stones. I hope you go check it out and snap yer' femur.

People shouldn't be driving over the curb by Lloyd Road School in the first place. Doesn't matter if they need to pass someone turning left or not. What happens if they hop the curb and hit a kid walking to school?

Come on people let the guy do his job. Then again a fellow employee said they all have many jobs. As long as they do their jobs who cares. Get over it and complain when you really have something to complain about. As long as the code man does not come to my house i don't care. The job is important and the town would suffer without such people be glad we don't live in Plainfield or Newark.

THE ABERDEEN BUSINESS ALLIANCE MEETING IS FINALLY BEING HELD TONIGHT AT TOWN HALL ON CHURCH STREET. ALTHOUGH I WAS APPROACHED ABOUT IT A WHILE BACK TONIGHT WE GET TO ACTUALLY ATTEND THE MEETING AND TALK WITH THE MANAGEMENT AND POLITICIANS ON A LOCAL LEVEL.

I URGE ALL OF MY FELLOW BUSINESS OWNERS TO ATTEND AND SEE WHAT OUR TOWN CAN FINALLY DO FOR US. THE ECONOMIC TIMES DICTATE A CHANGE IN WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO UNDER THEIR RULES. RULES I MUST ADMIT THAT SEEMS TO BECOME MORE ANTI-BUSINESS WITH EACH ADMINISTRATION.

I APPLAUD MAYOR TAGLIARINI FOR FIANLLY PUTTING SOMETHING LIKE THIS TOGETHER. THE COMPETETIVE NATURE OF SMALL BUSINESS IN TOWNS LIKE OURS MAY FINALLY GET SOME INPUT AND PROPER ATTENTION. I JUST HOPE THEY LET US SPEAK AND ALLOW US TO PRESENT OUR SIDE AS TO WHAT WE FACE IN THEIR PROCESSES AND REGULATIONS. TO SAY NOTHING OF THE COSTS THAT SEEM TO BE UNREGULATED AND OVERLY BURDENSOME.

IF YOU DON'T ATTEND AND VOICE YOUR OPINION YOU CANNOT BE APART OF ANY POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENT FROM THE MEETING TONIGHT. AT LEAST WE MAY GET A BETTER LONG WITH THE RULES AND REGULATIONS THAT GOVERN US SMALL BUSINESSES.

SHOW UP OR SHUT UP IS WHAT I SAY.

Beach Bob, you are wrong about where the property lines are located on both sides.The property starts on the other side of the bridge abutting the red cape cod's property (somewhere near that phone company box) and continues up to the area just before where the Cambridge Park fence starts along Lloyd Road. The walkway that leads to the front doors of the school (between the marque and Cambridge Park field) is SD property.

To the other people who think that problem about a sidewalk being impassable for the disabled is a insignificant problem, would you rather "The Equalizers" sue the school district and we all have to pay them because the RESPONSIBLE PARTY/OWNER OF THE PROPERTY doesn't care about fixing it (and not a mom who you think should perform work without the owners permission).

I ild America and i'm damn proud said...

Business alliance my ass. Lower school taxes and lower costs for us builders is what matawan and aberdeen need. The sooner the better. Time to stop the engineers from running the town. Do you hear me John Q.

I build America and i'm proud said...

Looking for any input from my posting about last nights meeting and see i goofed. It should have been posted by I build America and i'm proud. My apologies to the grammar and punctuation police that are occasionally on here.

Just so you know said...

I hear the next Business Alliance meeting is in September for those of you who did not attend last night. Make a list of changes you would like to see done to better your business.

Let us not become a Matawan. Their politicians ruined that town. Did anyone see where former Mayor Clifton blamed the stores like Shop Rite for causing the C-Town to close. Typical politician he is. He would not know the truth if it slapped him in the face. The political leadership Clifton left behind in Matawan when he went to Freehold caused that C-Town to close. They did not support it and they WANTED IT TO FAIL.

That is your Mayor Buccelato for you and the others follow like sheep. I talked to the manager of the C-Town just before it closed and he truly beleived the failure of the store was solely due to the political leadership in town. Now Clifton wants to blame everyone else but his fellow politicians. All too typical is it not?

My deepest sympathy is offered to Joey Warren and his family. I have just been called and told that you have lost your father. I too did all I could do for my father before he passed and I to know that by taking him to several expert facilities you also tried to get him the necessary help to extend his life as I did. He will always live on in your memories for all eternity.

businesses can't survive here said...

Politicians ruining a town? How about ruining a state and an entire country? Aberdeen is example number one as to what can go wrong and will continue to go wrong unless you vote all incumbants out of office.
Norman Kauff and all who allow him to rule are no less guilty! C.M.E. is in the sights of those who need to know. My son sent his latest bills for work that these town engineers billed him for. He sent it to the right people in the right place. Now is the time to send all of them packing.

Anonymous said...

Just left a new business in town and heard plenty. While I was shopping the owner and a much older man were discussing how the town has been not so cooperative with them. Who could that be I wonder. Anyone come up with the answer like me that it might have been the Code Enforcery or the old Fire Chief. Could the Code Enforcer guy or the Chief have been to this business and angered them. I know the town looks great and is cleaner then most but how buisnesses can operate with all these rules is beyond me. Some towns you see advertisements for in town shops and they get left alone. Just look at Keyport as an example. They allow signs for local shops. Not in Aberdeen unless you pay off the local party boss. That is well known around these parts money talks and bullshit walks. It is a joke how they think they can tell a shop what to do and what not to do. How can we make a living is what they need to tell me. I under the oppressive rules they have. I was invited to go to the meeting as a business owner. No thanks I say to them. I don't need to hear a politician tell me how to run my business. Not unless you let me operate the way I want to will I attend. I moved into town from Matawan and now I hear even Matawan is cracking down across the board. My lease is up in ten months and I am out of here. Keyport next stop for me. They may have politician problems but at least you can advertise and try and survive. Bon Voyage Aberdeen.

Hey "Just So You Know" from 6/18 at 5:56 PM, when and where did Clifton say that the C-town failed because of Stop and Shop and Shop Rite? Oh, right, he didn't!!! Nice try, as we all know that both the Democrats of Matawan that were in charge killed that store along with the Union that picketed it.

Happy Fathers Day except to said...

The political leadership let that store die. Fact! The article in the Bayshore Independent quotes Clifton as saying that stores along highways did in fact contribute to C-Town closing.

Democrats and Republicans alike let that store fail. They did not like 'those people' is also a fact. Fact! Keep trusting these out for themselves only politicians you idiot.

By the way stores can stay vacant if the owners wish.

Freeholder Opie did in fact attribute the C-Town closing to the Aberdeen supermarkets on Route 34. Period. If you were there, you would have heard it. As far as the Aberdeen Business Council is concerned, I would not have much in terms of expectations from this endeavor.

The C Town in Matawan failed because it was a dirty store that sold bad meat and milk. I tried my best to support the store but after a pound of rancid turkey, and two gallons of spoiled milk (all purchased on seperate occasions) I gave up!

only one complaint said...

The number all of you need to call in town is 583-4200 to make a complaint. The call goes to the right department and somebody calls you back. You supply the information and it will be looked into. They will call you back and let you know what they can do for you to. I called about a water problem last week or so and they were right out and handled it. I got no complaints about the little things. Maybe you should go to a council meeting and ask your representatives to look into things like the empty stores in Cliffwood. Take a ride to the Amboys or Old Bridge and see what you don't see in this town. Been to Asbury Park lately. Be thankful for what we don't have that many towns do. Things that make them look seedy and messy. I got no complaints except that the taxes for the school are killing me.

As for the budget I called my brother who is in accounting and he says that what our council is propbably trying to do is present their budget and let the state kick it back. Then they can screw over the people who really do the work and can blame the state for furloughing them.

It is called Norm fuzzy math 101.

On another note and in regards to Gary who knows Joe so long from a previous posting, are you the Gary who laughs funny? I remember you and Joe were like peanut butter and jelly. That you two have remained friends all these years is great. Remember MAMS and the carwashes and ski trips that Joe organized. I am sure Joe was upset when Mr. Dudzik passed away as well. He loved that man like a father. He was a great teacher. Mr. D. hated administration but loved teaching kids.

Wanna buy a business and a home here? said...

You people who go after the Aberdeener or MAcaleer need to prioritze your idiocy and ignorance. Let me start proving that layer by layer and show you for what you really are. A Kauffite. Let us start with the following questions. ?A. Have either of them caused the taxes, fees, secret insider and Kauff controlled contractor deals over the past twelve years to skyrocket out of control? * By the way if you say Joey Warren has control as a school board member you must have slept through the Bar-Za years when they and Stupid-erintendent Quinn grew our school taxes by 20 million dollars. * If you just woke up Joey Warren has only been on the board a year so. So the 20 million you did nothing about during the Quinn and Bar-Za years does not count against him. ?B. Do either of these men control municipal development, municipal operations, municipal spending, municipal contracts, municipal appointments, municipal ordinances, municipal legal staff and the highly questionable *of council fees* that are paid to Norman Kauff? * Don't forget that along with the hiring and firing of the town manager under Norman Kauff's control he also fired them former manager who tried to stop some or all of the above being perpetrated against us who pay the bills? * And do not forget Councilwoman Jen Gallo who also was forced to resign by Norman Kauff for daring to ask about the Holy Grail of Aberdeen, the town engineer, or the much truer name the *thieves of Aberdeen* who is of course CM&E. CM&E who also pay Kauff for the right to plunder the treasury and overcharge businessmen and homeonwers alike. By the way my business and my home will soon be for sale so i'm done with Aberdeen soon enough. ?C. Do either of these two men seek to undermine the taxpayers by allowing costs to balooned out of control over the past twelve years under the dictatorial Norman Kauff control of all things Aberdeen?
?D. Have these men stood up and identified themselves for years in seeking to improve our community? * Have you the ANONYMOUS attackers who lurk in the dark recesses of cyberspace ever really got involved? Is it just too easy to stay ANONYMOUS where you can't be identified for your true and undying allegiance to all things Norman Kauff? The answer to all of the above is a resounding YES! Without a doubt! So attack away!

Blah, Blah made sense ? said...

Just came in from the pool and looked to see if the subject post had changed. Nope it did not. The last posting above me is just more blah, blah and more blah. But is it ? Most of it made real sense.

Coren's new job from Kauff said...

Don't kid yourself. We will soon have Mark Coren working for Aberdeen once again. As soon as Coren gets released we can all be sure that Kauff will make the former town manager Mark Coren, or as many of us love to refer to him as our own little convicted pedophile and registered sex offender. That Mark Coren will immediately be placed by Kauff as once again being the Aberdeen Development Czar. Kauff did that once before until the candidates all realized Coren was a big political liability even worse then Kauff. So Coren was let go from the developmental czar gig after being paid a reported 25k for his whole three weeks of work. Kauff is ruining this town and costing all of us big money.

Norm said...

Actually, I ws thinking about giving Coren the code enforcer job. I bet the elementary schools will be well inspected, especially since Joey fired all the janitors, so he could save a few bucks replacing them with illegal alien day laborers.

The illegals are coming?? said...

Illegal alien day laborers do one thing. THEY WORK THEIR ASSES OFF. The same may not be able to be said about our former janitorial staff. Did our staff work to their potential. I don't know. Just like you really don't know who will be cleaning our schools under the new contract. Sure we do not know them nor did we really know the janitors recently let go. Bus drivers who we also don't really know also may soon be let go since the bus business that barza and Quinn gave us grew out of control and is similarly very costly to the taxpayers. Did we really know who the bus drivers are or if they can be as dangerous as you illegal alien suggestions. Probably not. That is reality of our America and our society as a whole.

Your typically alarmist bullshit scare tactics is played out. Every person hired would have to be investigated thoroughly. The company would be liable, bonded and insured for their employees and any possible conduct. The school has cameras, security and more for all of you Paul Revere types. The illegals are coming the illegals are coming! Get real will ya? Time for me to hit the communting trail. Bye!

It's nothing personal it's just business. Right Norm? Just Norm's corrupt political business. No different then the Mafia.

Anonymous said...

The MAFIA has more honesty in comparison to Normy.

Norm said...

Maybe Joey's landlord will rent the house he lives in to the illegal aliens that will be replacing the janitors. You could probably fit 60-70 of them in there. I bet his neighbors would love that. But, then again, it just might be an improvement. Adios

The true boogeyman are those who lie when confronted with the fiscal reality of our school systems budget woes and whine about how, why and who made the tough decisions on behalf of the taxpayers, whom the teachers and staff unions have screwwed over for many years. FACT!

Polls, union leaders and the public said...

Very true is all i can say about the unions scare tactics. They hurt themselves from the teachers union to all others in school services that did not show themselves well recently. Schools are for learning and while support staff is important it is not the significant educational instruction tools needed to properly educate all of our children. While i sympathize with those who've lost positions the big picture of 4,000 students needing to be educated is the priority not janitors and school bust drivers. Those services will still be provided and students will learn irregardless of the union rhetoric and name calling by most union members at the insistance of the union leadership who offered noI solutions or concessions. It is obvious that the union leadership cut their losses and blamed everyone but themselves once again for the loss of jobs. They never learn those unions. They better wake up soon as things are changing with public sentiment significantly against them. It is a very strong showing in local and national polls as well as at the local kitchen table and BBQ picnic table setting discussions amongst family and friends.

I heard Mark Coren applied for and was given a janitor job with the. new company.

The safer bet????? said...

Coren as a janitor sure like that would ever happen. But ask yourself who really looked at the janitors, bus drivers, teachers and administrative staff? Maybe the supposed illegals you fear are a safer bet?

To the few above -dont worry ALL OUT SOURCING has been totally looked into ....WTF?
yes and I have a bridge for sale that crosses into Brooklyn.

Isnt it an oxymoron that it will save money - but be totally same service and as safe - BUT AT THE CHEAPEST BID PRICE>...???

I will tell you this, all Matawan Aberdeen- those bus drivers better not be next. DO you trust any one to drive your kids? How much care do you take when driving? You should see what some of those outside companies already send to our schools, imagine a whole fleet..... beware....

and this is not some "union scare tactic"...this is the truth
Another truth is that those who want these changes the most do not have kids in the system who be in contact with the new hirees or may be driven by them in the future.

WHO REALLY DRIVES THEM NOW said...

THE POST ABOVE IS BULLSHIT.

JUST MORE UNION THREATS THAT THE SKY IS FALLING. JUST MORE CRAP LIKE HAS BEEN POINTED OUT BEFORE THAT THE UNIONS PUSH. JUST MORE IGNORANT, MALIGNING AND TYPICAL UNION SCARE TACTICS IS ALL IT IS. THIS TIME IT IS ABOUT WHO WILL DRIVE OUR KIDS TO SCHOOL AND ARE THEY SAFE DRIVERS. EVER GET IN YOUR CAR AND FOLLOW THE SCHOOL BUS DRIVER THAT TAKES YOUR KID TO SCHOOL NOW? HEY SMARTASS WHO IS DRIVING THEM NOW AND DO YOU REALLY KNOW THEM? HOW MANY ARE ON MEDICATION THAT IS LEGAL AND ILLEGAL? HOW MANY HAVE SECRETS WE WOULD WANT TO KNOW ABOUT? HOW MANY OF THEM DO YOU REALLY REALLY KNOW?
DO THEY RUN DRUG TESTS OR RANDOM BACKGROUND CHECKS? SHOULD THEY?

I MYSELF THINK THE SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS WILL BE NEXT SINCE WE SHOULD NOT BE IN THE SCHOOL BUS BUSINESS. NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN. THAT IS ANOTHER QUINN NIGHTMARE HE LEFT BEHIND. HIM AND THE OTHERS WHO WE SHOULD ALL BE GLAD ARE
G O N E!

SO KEEP BLAMING EVERYONE BUT YOURSELF FOR WHAT HAS TO BE DONE.

Try looking in the mirror for blame said...

Blame everyone around you is a very good point. Are the union members and janitors blaming their coworkers? Are they blaming their union leadership who would not bargain in good faith? Are they blaming those who would not sacrafice a little to save others jobs? No they blame leadership and the aberdeener guy as if his one vote would have turned the tide and save their jobs. The aberdeener guy represents a great portion of our community who are truly tired of the out of control costs for school services. School services by the way that make up 60% of their very high taxes. Taxes remember that are for services they will never use or have not used for many years. These are a significant portion of our community who are childless couples or seniors struggling to pay the bills. They are also trying to keep the houses they love. Think of them as well as you grandstand and blame everyone but the person you look at in the mirror each morning.

sad but true said...

It is still obviously about me me me

If you have no use for the schools - you could care less. Yes monies spent are high. I would like an outside audit to report WHY our district spends more than most its same size. But to sit there and arbitrarily point out things that are not fact is not fair.


i am not union. But I do know where that bus driver poster is coming from. I dont want to get into logistics for fear of slanderous writing - but CERTAIN outside companies I would not want to drive my worst enemy.

The questions are still being avoided by all you CAPITAL LETTER typers who curse to sound tough - where is the accountibility for those who have around the longest? There are BOE members who for years sat by and did nothing? There are people who complain after the fact.... the field is too much, the costs are too high, administration makes too much = all valid points - but it is MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACKING or hindsight is 20/20 so to speak.

We all talk tough now - and we are in a recession so it makes it worse - but where have all you crack detectives and amazing accountants with all the money answers been over the past 10 years or so as it spun out of control. Still BOE meetings are empty and people run unopposed for seats.....

Buy a brick? said...

People who have brought up and fought these things are seen as an lbatross or gadfly for speaking out. NSecJ is an example just for his positions and points against the sports field. He too was shouted down. Why? Most of his points were very valid. The field was allowed to become unusable on purpose and the school leadership allowed it to happen. Gorilla Joe wanted a new field and he got it. Costs be damned. Gorilla Joe gets what he wants. Always will always did. Now the sports monument while privately funded is the next project, but for whose benefit. Education is more then sports. I respect the cause and wish them well. I will not buy a brick though since it is only sports related and honoring from the pictures we saw at bricks to make it happen I say.

Hey Joey,

Does your school board have a guilty conscience?

Do the fired janitors have to turn in their keys to the board? Or can they just drop the keys off to the new janitors over at the 7-11, or whatever muster zone they are getting them from?

MRHS Alumni 76 said...

The Norcross thing is FUNNY!

The janitor thing is not.

The janitors seem to blame Joey W yet have many others to blame also for what had to happen.

Teachers union # 1.

I feel bad for them and was glad to see that those close to retirement will serve their days here and not lose their pensions.
The rest should look seriously for employment and understand the big picture and the dire economic restrictions and challenges we all face.

I wish all of them well.

It was an economic decision. $500k will be saved and keep teachers to educate the students. Bus drivers will be next and for a good reason. Fact!

School staffer who knows the deal said...

Hey SAD TRUTH only two hours and then you can be the formerly SAD NOW UNEMPLOYED JANITOR DEVOID OF TRUTH AND A JOB.

Stop blaming the man who had to solve a significant financial hole as superintendant. Your union and the teachers union

One good thing is that at least that low life, rat bastard lying scumbag Joel Glastein, who cost this district tens of thousands for his lying under oath for his flawed and obvious personal vendettas against us as the hard working staff is GONE!

And by the way don't think this Officer Daryl thing is over either. Time for John P and Dr. O'M to stop f'ing with people. Politics and favoritism in this instance did not serve the people well. Maybe if the chief had some backbone rather then pleasing everyone at the expense of his men he might finally earn *SOME GOD DAMN RESPECT*. Probably not.

Flemington, Raritan Twp. officials wrong to cut school spending; teachers are low paid, woman says
Published: Thursday, June 10, 2010, 3:56 PM Updated: Thursday, June 10, 2010, 4:02 PM
Hunterdon County Democrat

Copper Hill School in the Flemington Raritan district

To the Editor:
Sixty-eight dollars a year. Five dollars and 66 cents a week. Eighteen cents a day. Would you be willing to pay this for a quality education? I would!
Many people including the powers that be in Raritan Township and Flemington think otherwise. They think this is too much money to pay in school taxes; it’s excessive, unnecessary.
In one of the most disorganized, unprofessional and short-sighted decisions in local politics, the Township Committee and Borough Council, under the tutelage of committeeman and Matawan-Aberdeen superintendent Rich O’Malley, voted to cut $1.5 million from the defeated Flemington-Raritan school budget after the district already cut millions from the budget, laid off staff, and reduced or eliminated programs.
They could have voted to cut less. Hunterdon Central’s budget did not pass, but they only cut $100,000 there.
What did the committees cut? Who knows! They sure don’t! The spreadsheets that were presented at the meetings were vague at best. When audience members asked for clarification, they couldn’t give it. When Superintendent Nolan asked the Township Committee for more time to discuss other options, they refused even though the borough was willing.
Racing to meet the budget deadline, the Board of Education pressed for more meetings, but some committee members were just too busy. Phone calls weren’t returned, conference calls never happened. Misinformed committee members wasted time grilling the board for answers to questions that had nothing to do with the defeated budget, but everything to do with pushing their agenda.
Our school district leaders took a pay freeze. On June 30, our teachers — already some of the lowest-paid in the state — will essentially be taking a pay freeze until a new contract is signed, which could take a year or more.
Dr. O’Malley got a big raise from his school district. He and the other committee members should be ashamed of themselves.
Remember all this the next time you plunk down $5 at a local fast food joint. Those pennies buy a lot of education, but I guess junk food is more important than knowledge.

Rateables Ms Hoghes??? said...

Catherine Hughes may have a town with RATEABLES? We don't. This is especially true when Kauff is using his C.O.A.H. magic show of lies to approve developments under the Kauff C.O.A.H. Just more lies that has been announced and lied about publically by the legal mouthpiece that roared for the highest $$$$$, Dan Mcarthy. This legal idiot that Kauff handpicked and that Kauff is the puppeteer for is a slouch in the legal profession so filled with pond scum.

Mcarthy, Kauff, Tag and all of the rest are LYING to all of us. R E V O L T I say!

Time will tell Norm? said...

Kauff Kauff Kauff.

All we hear is about all of the corruption he is involved in. What about the authorities? Where are they? Don't get me wrong Kauff is all people say and more. After all he is a lawyer. As for the dimly lit parking lot shakedown it happened and many know it. Many who know also should have reported it? Many are culpable for not reporting it?

Politics unusual in New Jersey.

Some things never change?

Or do they?

Time will tell?

Right Norm?

Anonymous said...

It appears the council is playing its political games again. This time at the cost of the towns employees. It was requested at a spur of the moment meeting that all employees take a voluntary furlough because the council wanted to cut another 100,000 out of the budget. The meeting was held by the manager and the lawyer. None of the council had the balls to attend. The meeting was led by the lawyer while the manager just sat there without saying a word. When we went in we had already been informed the department heads had found the money to cover the furlough costs at their meeting. This did not mean that furloughs were off the table. Prior to this meeting Mayor Tagliarini was overheard in the finance department saying that they needed headlines. After the meeting the deputy mayor was overheard saying that it didn’t matter that the funds were found that they wanted to do the furloughs. I guess this is the headlines the mayor was referring to. Apparently the council is already starting its 2011 campaign at the expense of the employees. I’m very disappointed that Mr. Lauro would throw the people, (that made him look good all those years as the director of public works), under the bus just for political headlines. It’s a sad day in Aberdeen when services are cut by the council just for political reasons.

aberdeen jack said...

Stop crying. Everyone in office now was VOTED IN, democratically.

Blame the voters for being uninformed.
Blame the repubs for not campaigning early enough or even reaching enough houses face to face.
Blame the voters who just dont care. Blame the voters who voted for people they knew rather than those who were not connected to such shady stories as some here are reported.

Aberdeen got what it deserves when no one cared enough. Thats why Memorial Day and July 4th crack me up- we are all so patriotic and yet BOE and council meetings are poorly attended, school board members run unopposed, election voter turnouts are in the toilet, 2 parties to choose from only. You want to be patriotic? = after you hang your flag GO VOTE but until then, all of the stories on here are useless.

I read here from time to time and saw some of the predictions around some of the crazy stories and posters who ruin the site with stupidity - but I remember the new housing developments were predicted and they may now be a reality - so again, until people stand up and be held accountable by their VOTE all of these crazy posts are worthless.

Ok. I'll say it. Nobody else is going to..There is a good possibility that our beloved Aberdeen, with this Glassworks transit village tailor made for commuter residential needs AND as a shopping destination that will contain businesses that can be accessed by pedestrians AND with additional affordable housing as a customer base within easy walking distance of it, is on the cusp of a major Renaissance and on the cutting edge of a new modern lifestyle. Now, if we can get a good share of artists interested in settling here, man, we are in, baby, IN! (You heard it here first)

Reality is lacking of Anon 1:23 said...

Anonymous at 7/3/10 at 1:23 pm. Get yourself to the hospital as it is obvious you have overdosed on the Kauff Kool-Aid. If you or anyone else believes any of the bullshit you posted then they are devoid of anything close to the political and leadership lacking reality that is Aberdeen. Either that or anonymous at 1:23 pm has already cashed their monthly Kauff check of corruption and they need to show Kauff they are standing up for all of his corruption against the taxpayers who pay their outraegous and fraudulent bills.

Where is the Joe Mcaleer we all knew that used to stand up for things that were wrong in town?

Time for him to say what he knows.
Many of the employees and officials of Aberdeen need to start divulging the truth about what is going on in Aberdeen and who really runs Aberdeen. C.M.E. and Norman Kauff is the unfortunate truth of who is running the show. Running it into the ground of course.

Anonymous said...

If any of you employees can look any of the council people or management in the face from now on you're in need of a slap in the back of the head.You need to wake you up. Fred Tag and all the rest of them have shown themselves to be what they truly are. They are controlled and manipulated by Normy. Nothing else matters if they still want furloughs after the money may have been found. They want to make people vote for them next election at the cost of the employees. As for Fred Tag he has gone far from someone I respected in the past to someone I will ignore. The next time he comes into my store and wants to shake my hand I will be sure to check for my jewelry and watch right away as he lets my hand go. If what was posted about a last minute meeting and worse is true the employees and the taxpayers are in for just more of the same. If they will so easily screw over the employees they will keep screwing us residents and business owners as well. I am a business owner and a resident so I get screwed twice. Time for the employees to rise up.

Thatsafactjack said...

It is not about how many developments or proposals come up for consideration. It is all about THE FEES FOR CM&E AND KAUFF.

So on this holiday when we celebrate our independence from a tyranical ruling class. Just remember that not much has changed for those of us in Aberdeen. We have taxation without representation. We have elected officials who are no more then marionette puppets for the exalted Ruler of Aberdeen our Norman Kauff Esquire. AKA Head Scumbag in Charge.

Happy 4th of July Normy??? said...

Two rules our leaders live by? That is so true. The first rule to governing in Aberdeen is

DO WHAT KAUFF TELLS YOU TO DO

The second rule is

NEVER DEVIATE FROM RULE UMBER ONE

Any additional proof that may be needed to proove that I ask you to reference the follwing

Janice Gallo Fmr. Councilwoman

Stewart Brown Fmr. Twp. Manager

Both have paid the price for deviating, questioning or cutting of C.M.E. funding. This was done ethically, responsibly and honestly. That don't work for our Norman Kauff and his henchmen.

Right Normy? Right henchmen?

Leadership is non existant said...

Henchmen is "right on" as a discription. All the council and local boards do is exactly what Norm tells them to do. Then again you can't blame them since they don't want to lose their 10k a year gig for just doing exactly what Norm tells them to do every other Tuesday night. It is without a doubt the easiest money they ever stole in their lives. I say stole because that is exactly what they are doing to all of the taxpayers for doing a great diservice by ignoring their sworn oath and ethical duty to the taxpayers. This has been accomplished by Norm and the D's by the councils allowing the taxpayers, business owners and the townspeople to merely be pawns in the CM&E and Norm game of "screwover the taxpayers every chance we get". You should know that Norm and CME are great at this game. You see they are so good since they have played it all by themselves for over twelve years now.

The rules of the game are simple. You see the game is solely based on how many pieces can CME and Norm move around the board and not cost themselves anything. All the while the taxpayers and more get screwed over and over again by those sworn to represent their intersts not those of Norm.

The ill gotten money stolen from all of us is in the millions that goes to CME and Norm. Money that comes from builders, homeowners, businesses and taxpayers while all the while nobody on the council ever really asks a substantive question against what Norm tells them to do. Good little soldiers all of them are. At what price though is this exacted from each and everyone of us. It is a far greater cost borne by all of us. Us taxpayers of course that pay all the bills. Bills that include CME and Norm of course.

The newest ones now sitting on the council dais in (Tag, Margaret, Jimmy and Greg)seem to have gained a reputation as the "newly elected puppets" or as the "obvious ignorant and incompetent majority on the Aberdeen council", which they have seem to have become so overnight.

From the last post about budget numbers and the all too telling political show to garner votes all of that seems to be being conducted at the . That is a major mistake they may not recover from this time. These people know where the money goes and who gets the great majority of it. It may be what Norm wants but Tags, Cannon and the others "may have some splaining (explaining) to do to a whole lot of pissed off Aberdeen employees"!!!!! These are peoples livelihoods these people are playing with. It is all just simple damage to Norm and his master plan.

I have a master plan for Norm. It is really uncomfortable and publicly humiliating. It also involves a sink and a very big man in prison garb who thinks Norm is really cute. Can anyone say Norm may be some guys girlfriend really soon. Nothing would make me happier I can assure you. I think Norm would be all right with it as well after he gets past the initial pain and embarrasment of having done to ones self what Norm has done for too many years to all of us. Paybacks are a bitch Norm. The council may also find out how much a bitch things can be if they scrafice the municipal employees in the manner that has been suggested on here recently.

In my line of work there is one simple rule. Measure twice cut once. This council bnetter measure the employees tempers before they even think of screwing them over for political capitol.

Mr. K. we have plans too said...

July 4 7:28 points out so many supposed developments on the drawing board going in so many directions with nothing firm or guarenteed to ever happen. That does not matter in the Kauff scheme of things. Right Mr. K.?
