Much like Nero playing the fiddle while Rome burned to the ground, the Matawan Borough Council meeting for tonight was cancelled. Just before the election, does that speak loudly on the position of the Democrats. Residents want answers, not mealy mouthed politicians who run for cover when it comes time to give answers.
In the words of Harry S. Truman, former President of the US, and a Democrat, "IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HEAT, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN."
Were they afraid to answer questions on the Budget deficit, what will happen to the residents of Mill Road and their sewage problems, what about spending the money for new Park signs, what about the Borough employees raises, what about the 2008 Road Program bonding for 1.3 Million, were they unable to justify paying for all those political signs in Matawan and surrounding areas. So they are not able to answer the tough questions. Yet these same people want us to vote to keep them in office. We want people who can take the heat and people who are not afraid to justify their positions, not run away.
Remember the cowardly acts of cancelling this meeting when you go to the polls on Election Day. Keep in mind vote for the person, not the party. Most of all, GET OUT AND VOTE.
