With NACo-Gate Dominating Cumberland County Politics Nelson And Albano Send Anti-Corruption Mail Into Cumberland County
By Steve Kush
Millville – Democrat mail is hitting the mailboxes in Cumberland County. Assemblymen Nelson Albano and Matt Milam recently sent a piece of mail claiming they are fighting corrupt politicians.
Cumberland County Regular Republican Organization Chairman Robert “Bob” Greco found the timing of the Democrat incumbent candidates’ mail piece “interesting.”
“With the NACo-Gate controversy continuing to dominate Cumberland County politics I find the timing of this mail piece somewhat interesting. At first glance I thought someone sent out an anti-Magazzu piece,” Cumberland County Republican Chairman Bob Greco said. “I’m not saying anyone is corrupt but Lou Magazzu, a close ally of Assemblymen Albano and Milam, has some serious issues and these guys sent out a mail piece that says in part, ‘they’re standing up to their own party to demand change’ yet they’ve remained silent on the NACo-Gate controversy swirling around Lou Magazzu.”
“Considering Assemblymen Albano and Milam claim to be ‘standing up to their own party’ and ‘locking up corrupt politicians,’ I am at least a little curious as to how they feel about their good friend Lou Magazzu soliciting gifts for his NACo campaign in direct violation of Cumberland County’s Code of Ethics for two years,” Greco added. “If they want to send mail into Cumberland County claiming they are fighting their own party I think it’s time they give their opinion on the Code of Ethics violations of Magazzu.”
Greco asked, “Given the events that have led to the NACo-Gate controversy are Albano and Milam going to ask that Magazzu’s name be removed from the Democratic headquarters sign that has their names on it?”
“I would seriously doubt Albano and Milam want Lou Magazzu and NACo-Gate dragging them down,” Greco said. “It’s nice that they made a claim in a glossy campaign mailer but now let’s see them back up their words with actions.”
