Matt Dunn comes through!In Saturday’s The News, Lou comes out with his promised figures related to his NACo campaign (travel provided by the taxpayers of Cumberland County).
He only provided this years numbers, ignoring our requests to come clean about last years campaign, paid for by the, yes, you got it, taxpayers.
Cumberland County Freeholder Director Lou Magazzu released a list Friday of contributions made to his 2009 campaign for second vice president of the National Association of Counties.
Magazzu received $78,000 in contributions toward his campaign, which failed to win him the position with NACo.
This is the second bid Magazzu made for the position, which would have put in him in line for presidency of the organization, a national group representing county government.
Lou’s use of an obscene amount of money in his campaign war-chest is likely the cause of NACo placing spending limits on future campaigns (see newspaper article).
Lou is still guilty of lying to the public, insisting that he would release this information “in thirty days) and missing that deadline by three days. The list of contributors is not surprising. We question the ethics behind the $6,000 from Sweeney, money that was donated by unsuspecting supporters to elect Sweeney, not help Louis in a personal campaign.
The top contributions toward Magazzu’s campaign include a $10,000 loan from the Cumberland County Democratic Organization and a $10,000 donation from SLRD Company, a Mullica Hill based environmental remediation group.
Magazzu received a$5,000 donations from Goodman Properties, Fralinger Engineering, T&M Associates, Mordecahi and Alice Neustadt of Brooklyn, NY, Adams Rhmann & Heggan, New Jersey UAW and District Council 711.
In addition, he received a $6,000 donation from Sen. Steven Sweeney’s election fund.
Other contributors donating between $500 and $1,000 included attorneys Arnold Robinson and the Kavanagh, Kavanagh and Dilazzero law firm.
