Magazzu can’t stand on his record so he attacks others
Cumberland County Republican freeholder candidates Rick Tonetta, Tom Sheppard and Sam Fiocchi called on Freeholder-Director Lou Magazzu to stand on his record and stop telling lies and distorting the truth.
“For Lou Magazzu to tell a reporter that his opponents ‘haven’t said what they stand for’ is untrue,” Republican freeholder candidate Rick Tonetta said. “Not only have we said what we stand for, we set up a website, cumberlandanswers.com, for everyone to see what we stand for. Perhaps Magazzu has forgotten our ethics reform proposal.”
“I seem to recall Lou Magazzu tried to draw attention away from the release of our ethics reform package by making false accusations about fundraising,” GOP freeholder candidate Tom Sheppard added. “His ill-fated attempt was called a lie by a well respected Cumberland County attorney.”
“Magazzu has done nothing but distort the truth to hide from his own sorry record,” Republican freeholder candidate Sam Fiocchi said. “Then again, Magazzu’s record is pretty bad, the county with the highest unemployment rate in the state while awarding lucrative legal contracts to out of county law firms over local firms, mismanagement of the jail resulting in the taxpayers being put on the hook for
$4.5 million and his failure to secure stimulus money for the county. I guess if I were Lou Magazzu I’d hide from my record too.”
“Any time Magazzu wants to get serious and compare records I’m ready,” Tom Sheppard said.
