Today we decided to visit another Blog that purports to offer the truth in Matawan. After visiting the site, known as Truth in Matawan, we felt compelled to reply.
Why isn't Truth in Matawan confronting the issues currently facing Matawan? Why is there no comment about the recent budget appropriation to borrow$125,000. for the 2008 Budget to pay for 2007 expenses. Don't try this at home kids, charging against your credit card has a way catching up with you.
Why is there no mention of the fact that the Borough Council, even if Paul Buccellato wins the mayoral election, is still controlled by the Democratic Council majority. Why does the Truth not mention that the same majority headed by Mayor Aufseeser that had us pay for a Study on Main Street, only to dismiss it as unimportant.
This same majority that has done little or nothing towards making the Transit Village a reality and helping reduce the tax burden to our residents. By the way, does anyone know what the plan is? Even though it is in litigation, we can still plan in an effort to be prepared to move forward. BUT, NOOOOOOOO, that would be progressive and this Council is still back living in the past, but spending money from the future.
Truth in Matawan makes no mention of the Revaluation letters being mailed after the 2007 November election. Nor do they make mention of the bacteria in the water notification being mailed until after the November election.
Come on, let’s discuss the issues that are here and now that affect Matawan.
