“Tryagain” keeps mentioning Jennifer (Lookabaugh) Swift’s AC trips, as if there was some nefarious purpose. We felt that we had to set the record straight in light of his persistent lies on this subject.
Jennifer was selected by her fellow freeholders as the delegate to the New Jersey Association of Counties, and as a result of her position, she was required to attend the annual conference in AC. This troll is acting as if the county picking up a tab to send a delegate on a 45-mile road trip is somehow improper.
Let us take a look at Louis Magazzu. In his bid for National Association of Counties president, Louis has billed the county for round trip airfare to Kansas City for $660.00 in 2008 and housing there for $633.74. Lou’s bid for NACo has nothing at all to do with his duties as freeholder, yet he feels that the county taxpayers should pick up his tab in his search for a new job.
In additon to that, there are other airfares and conference registrations in his quest for this office that we paid totaling about $3,000 in 2008. Is it possible that county employees may have attended conferences and been asked to help him campaign?
While he was president of the New Jersey Assoc. of Counties, our county contributed $1,000 for an ad in the brochure at that conference. We the taxpayers, have also paid $1,000 for “Cumberland County Freeholder Lapel pins”. Give me a break !
Is Lou also accepting funds that will not be reported in this bid for NACO president? We understand from one of our sources that this is possibly happening. We will keep you informed.
