Let the Games Begin

Joseph "Photo Op" Mullaney in an article in a weekly publication, stated that the 2003 Borough Council left $85,000. in County Grant money unspent. In an attempt to glorify himself as "the Saviour of Matawan" he claimed that HE is trying to make up for fiscal irresponsibilities of the past. Apparently, such is not the case. Councilman Paul Buccellato stated he would supply copies of documents proving that was not true to the Council Members. The matter is under review by Fred Carr, Borough Administrator. Councilman Buccellato was requested to reveal the addressee of the letters from the County. He was advised to wait until the investigation is completed. This is how the Council gets bogged down with political sparring. The question is will Mullaney admit he was wrong....only time will tell. This is the second time Councilman "Photo Op" Mullaney has run to the newspapers with his stories accompanied by a photo!

Did anyone notice that Councilman Mullaney was not on the dais at the Planning Board Meeting on Monday night? He did show up late, however, as on previous occasions he didn't interrupt the meeting to ask if he could sit in on the hearing. Well, he claims that he didn't realize he had business dealings with one of the developers over 20 years ago and it was prudent not to vote on the Sloane property project. Rumor has it that Councilman Mullaney spoke with one of the representatives from American Properties and was instructed by one of the Borough's attorneys not to vote on this project. There is something unethical about a Council Member/Planning Board member speaking to an applicant outside of the meeting. When will Mullaney learn his boundaries? Does the Borough have to be sued before he is stopped!

BTW, Mullaney is not the "Saviour of Matawan." The last time I attended a religious ceremony his name wasn't mentioned!

At last week's Council meeting, in an apparent orchestrated move, Councilman Mullaney and Councilman Malley had Kevin Mendes(candidate for Council member) ask questions that they just so happened to have the detailed answers on hand. It appears that everyone knew it was a set up except for Mendes. Come on now don't insult the intelligence of Matawan residents with grandstanding.

More to follow later.....
