NACo-Gate Day 16: Will Magazzu’s Treasurer Speak?
Magazzu’s apparent gag order on the Cumberland County Democrat’s treasurer
Millville – Lou Magazzu’s NACo-Gate controversy continues to drag on and Magazzu continues to tell half-truths or have others, such as County Administrator Kenneth Mecouch, give answers for him. The only exception to this trend is the apparent gag he has placed on the Cumberland County Democrat’s treasurer.
“Here we are, day two of waiting for Magazzu’s treasurer to tell us who signed the $10,000 check for the no interest loan given to Magazzu’ NACo slush fund,” Cumberland County GOP Chairman Bob Greco said. “It’s really not too difficult to produce a copy of a cancelled check. I don’t understand what the hold up is unless Magazzu simply isn’t allowing his treasurer to talk.”
Greco asked, “Could you imagine the front page headlines if I gave myself a $10,000 no interest loan from the Cumberland County Republican Organization?”
“Even with Democrats from across the county asking the same question about the no interest loan to his NACo slush fund Lou Magazzu believes he has gotten away with it,” Greco added. “What Magazzu fails to realize is this thing is far from over and we will fight to get the answers to the questions because the voters of Cumberland County deserve honest answers from their elected officials.”
“Lou Magazzu needs to allow his treasurer to answer the questions revolving around the $10,000 no interest loan to his NACo slush fund,” Greco said.
