Dave Levin pipes up again

David Levin asks a valid question in a letter to the editor in today’s The News:

To the Editor:

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the percent of the labor force that is unemployed in the United States for the month of June stands at 9.7 percent.

Unfortunately, here in Cumberland County, we have New Jersey’s highest unemployment rate for June at 12.2 percent. New Jersey’s overall unemployment rate for June was 9.2 percent.

Cumberland County’s unemployment rate is 2.5 percent higher than the national average and 3 percent higher than New Jersey’s average.

Does the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders have any plans on the table to help lower the unemployment rate?

Of course we expect Lou’s apologist to attack the messenger rather than to address the issue of unemployment. Of course that is always Lou’s way. He learned it well from Doug Rainear; misdirection.  Never answer a question, they attack the source of the question.  They used this tactic on Carl Johnson, and Doug Rainear continues to this day with old news.

    Well, a decent public transit system would be a start.

    Didn’t see anywhere in the article where Mr. Levin attacked anyone BUT the commentary provided by Losers and Liars Club feels compelled to attack Magazzu for EVERYTHING!! Last I read there were 7 Freeholders and by the way 2 of your favorite independents were Freeholders. What and where was their plan? Bring a bucket of water to the pond Janey?

    To have good government the citizenry must learn history. There are 3 former Democrat
    freeholders on the Independent ticket. Their campapaign chair is also.
    All of which served with Magazzu.
    That means half of all the former Democrat Freeholders that ever served with Lou are running against their own party chair & Freeholder Director.
    This has never happened before in the State of Saprano(New Jersey).
    This is a real revolution.

  4. knotu says: Didn’t see anywhere in the article where Mr. Levin attacked anyone” – nobody said anywhere that Levin attacked anything – two words – “reading comprehension”.

    Unemployment increased to the highest level UNDER Lou Magazzu’s watch. It did not happen under Christy, or Jennifer (Lookabaugh) Swift.

    The problem we have in Cumberland County can be summed up with two numbers, 7 – 0.

    Seven yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes anytime there is a vote. Seven yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes anytime Lou makes a motion.

    Can’t wait to repeat today in November. The writing is on the wall.

    David Levin is Vineland’s George Anderson. I wouldn’t give him and credit for anything, other than being consistent in his objection to every single thing ever.

    Mr Levin is indeed a prolific writer but my point was it is never enough to just post HIS article and let it stand for comment. This attack website continually has to bash Magazzu and Co. on EVERY letter and EVERY thing wrong in the County and Country. To blame Magazzu fro the dismal unemployment numbers is totally unfair! Cumberland has long had high unemployment and with the worst economy since the Great Depression it has worsened. Guess according to Blind Woman Jane, the national economy is also Magazzu’s fault!! Certainly couldn’t have been George W. Bush’s fault, or could it? Seems GWB’s idea of stimulating the econmy was always to start a new war!

  7. I think the point was that New Jersey somehow has managed to have better employment rates than the rest of the country – so somebody in New Jersey is doing something right.

    National 9.7%; NJ 9.2%.

    But Louis Magazzu has been so busy changing the ethics code to allow him to lobby for a position where nobody wanted him that Cumberland County comes in at a whooping 12.2%.

    Where were the freeholders when the DRBA allowed the Jet Center to walk away without a fight, losing even more jobs and putting the local airport at risk?

    Shouldn’t the freeholders have tried to get involved and negotiated? Lou was too busy chasing his broken dream to be concerned with problems at home.
