Lou Magazzu has not done one thing for veterans during his tenure. But he is now using veterans as a campaign issue. Hopefully the veterans that faithfully served our country will see through this ruse.
At issue is whether to use county money to build a religious chapel at the veterans cemetery. In a letter to the editor today, argument was made praising this spending of taxpayers’ money to build a chapel.
I was so glad to see that Cumberland County Freeholder Director Louis Magazzu, Freeholder Nelson Thompson and other freeholders stood up against a heavy opposition and said that we need to build the chapel for our people and we need to spend the money.
What the writer failed to disclose is that the son-in-law of Ed Salmon will profit at taxpayers expense by getting the contract to build this religious building. If you follow Magazzu Watch closely, you will recall that Salmon Ventures Limited is one of the contributors of undeclared gifts to Lou’s NACo slush fund.
In fact, Salmon Ventures Limited has been a faithful supporter of the Cumberland County Democratic Party.
The writer also failed to disclose the amount of money bonded for this church, %$1,000,000. That means the taxpayers will be responsible to repay $1,380,000 for this project which reeks of graft, nepotism and cronyism.
