Bad News for Lou Magazzu

In what can only be described as bad news for Lou Magazzu, Jon Corzine recently signed bi-partisan legislation requiring county organizations to operate under new business rules, increasing transparency.

The measures (A-1904/S930) received strong bipartisan backing in both houses when they were approved in late June. Corzine signed the measure Oct. 1, calling it “another step forward in our efforts to bring more transparency and ethics to government.”

It also was backed by the Citizens’ Campaign, a prominent nonprofit ethics in government advocacy group, which had a role in developing the legislation.

For far too long county organizations have operated under a cloak of virtual invisibility. Ask any voter who is the chair of their declared party, and 99% would have no idea; let alone knowing who the treasurer or vice chair are.

In Cumberland County this allegedly allowed Lou Magazzu to wrest the checkbook out of the control of properly appointed treasurer O’Donnell, and possibly write and endorse a check to his personal bank account.

“This new law goes a long way in ending the era of ‘top-down’ political party rule,” Vandervalk said. “It gives meaning to government by and for the people as it provides for increased citizen participation in the decision-making process of county political parties.”
