Apparently, ethics in Matawan have gone the way of the economy....in the DUMPER! This is not to say all the members of the Matawan Borough Council are in the same boat. Here are the facts...
KEY AUTO BODY - Councilman Kevin Mendes' family owned business
From 1/2000 to 4/21/2009
Total fees $11,455.19
From 1/2008 to 4/21/09
This is approximately 46% of the $11,455.19 (in 16 months)
THESE FIGURES DO NOT INCLUDE TOWING FEES.
MULLANEY TIRE - Councilman Joseph "Buddy" Mullaney's business
1/2000 To 4/21/2009
Total fees $7,806.17
From 1/2006 to 4/21/2009
This is approximately 40% of the $7,806.17
THESE FIGURES DO NOT INCLUDE FIRST AID WORK.
Not bad for a Councilman who said back in March 2008, he would stop doing work for the Borough even though it would hurt his pocketbook.
Who's kidding who Councilmen?
