Even if you're not a Democrat, you should vote for Aimee Belgard. We need fresh blood. The freeholders operate in secrecy and tell the residents of the county only what they want us to hear. Belgard is informed about the issues and asks the questions we want asked. When you elect her she will tear the covers off and then we can really see where, and to whom, our tax dollars are going.

We got fresh blood last year when we kicked Maryann Reinhart out of office and Chris Brown moved up to the Assembly and replaced them with Leah Arter and Joe Howarth.

Joe we also got "fresh blood" running for town council. What's your assessment on the local race since you seem to have a barometer on politics in town?

Very well said David Crawford. What on earth is so wrong with climbing the ladder?

When the R's talk about cutting taxes, riddle me this, batman - who was in charge when they were applied in the first place? Tired of the status quo? Unwilling to surrender to the two Georges? (Gilmore and Norcross?) 10% approval rating in Congress, and a turn-out of less than 10% of those who cast ballots in the prior State Election at this June's primary. Elect a guy who only runs the plays as called by party leadership, special interests, and lobbyists? Or, better still, another "major" party candidate, whose only message is that the other guy is 'no good'? Where's the budget? Why are our troops still in Afghanistan? WILL EITHER OF THEM SIGN THE PLEDGE - The "Change the Rules" Pledge, which restores campaign finance reform in a manner unassailable by the Judiciary? I am running with (Independent) Democratic-Republicans for Freeholder, Donald E. Letton and Kim Johnson, for the seat that is open to election on November 6th for the NJ Third Congressional District. We have joined together to restore the application of the Constitution - the WHOLE Constitution, and to seek out, expose, and excise any local, county, State, and National corruption we can find. Our proposal, the "Change the Rules" Pledge, offers a solution to campaign finance reform that circumvents the Supreme Court decision of Citizens United v. Federal Election Board. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with the people of your community. Less than a month remains.
