Mayor Aufseeser, Councilman Mullaney, Councilwoman Mullaney, Councilman Malley and Councilman Cannon were missing from the Matawan Rotary 5K Run on Sat., July 21, 2007. Councilman Cannon works at night and we can understand him not attending such an early morning event. The Matawan Rotary presented the Defibullator to the Matawan Fire Dept., as the Mayor was not in attendance. Interestingly enough the Mayor along with Councilman Mullaney, Councilwoman Mullaney were present at SharkFest later that day. They were present along with representatives from the Matawan Alliance, Matawan-Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce, Matawan Borough Historical Sites Commission and owner Ricardo Hernandez for the Grand Opening of C-Town on Fri., July 20, 2007. Call me crazy, but when an organization gives to Matawan, at the very least, shouldn’t Mayor Aufseeser be there to accept the gift on behalf of the Borough! Did C-Town contribute to the Matawan Rotary 5K Run? NO, they did NOT! Did they contribute to Sharkfest? Well, as the Matawan Alliance is a private organization...will we ever know? If someone has a heart attack in C-Town, they can thank the Rotary for its donation to the Borough.
Ok, let’s cut to the chase. It just so happens that if Councilman Joseph “Photo Op” Mullaney does not sanction the event then the Mayor, Councilman Malley, Councilwoman Mullaney do not attend. James Shea and Councilman Mullaney also happen to be on the Matawan Planning & Zoning Board. Per meeting minutes dated 3-5-07, from the Planning & Zoning Board, Councilman Mullaney spoke for C-Town at a Planning & Zoning Board meeting. Is this a conflict or part of his duties as a Councilman/member of the Planning & Zoning Board? Is it priorities or politics?
