Here is some dirt on another one of Lou’s supporters, T&M Associates (Engineering Firm) that donated $5,000 on 02/26/2009. A July 28 article in PolitickerNJ.com had this to report:
Mercer County Freeholder John “Hop” Cimino has a new job: he’s been hired to do “sales and marketing for both the public and private sector” for T&M Associates, engineering firm that has done work for Mercer County and other public entities. That means Cimino will be able to use his contacts as a county official to drum up public engineering contracts for the firm – not a bad gig.
In 2005, T&M acquired another politically active engineering firm, JCA Associates. A year earlier, the president of JCA and two senior executives pleaded guilty to filing fraudulent tax returns that concealed illegal campaign contributions.
“John’s joining us is a reflection of his enormous expertise and of our commitment to hiring the best and the brightest,” said T&M CEO Kevin F. Toolan. One Mercer County Democrat found that funny, suggesting that if they want the best and brightest, they would have hired another Freeholder, Daniel Benson.
