Magazzu Keeps Cumberland County in the Poorhouse

new jersey median incomeNJ median income chartLou Magazzu and his cohorts have had twelve years to make a positive change in the county.  In twelve years, Cumberland County is STILL the poorest county in the state.

The graph shows ERS/USDA government figures for 2008. The red line going through the center of the chart is New Jersey state median income of $67,142.

How much is Don Olbrich earning for a job at which he is certainly not qualified? Lou approved this appointment?

Bob Balicki, hired by Lou, is earning TWICE the county median income. Meanwhile, as of August 2009 we had unemployment reaching 12%!

The chart to the right has a break down of the actual figures and percentages. Cape May County, with a very high percentage of summer labor at minimum wage still earns more than we do. Lou, the numbers do not lie. Please tell us again what you have done FOR Cumberland County. We just can’t see it!

Lou Magazzu has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to Tri County, whose director, Al Kelly earns well over THREE TIMES the county median income. Meanwhile our residents are standing in the unemployment line looking for the jobs that Lou and Nelson Thompson have sent to Camden and Philly.

This November, tell the incumbents that you want your elected leaders to work FOR the county and NOT for the Camden special interests and North Jersey!

    Has Sheeena morphed into Watcher#1? Same post regardless of topic. Guess the Blind One aka Eyes Everywhere is OK with this? He/she only gets excited when I stray off topic and either deletes my comments or threatens. Only Sheeena and Watcher can post the same comment on EVERY topic!! And you ladies complain about the newspapers? Kinda like the pot and the kettle!

    Now I suppose Magazuu alone is responsible for those figures? You know what they say about liars and figures. The Republicans have had a number of Freeholders serving on the Freeholder Board for a number of years. What did they do about changing the institutional problems of our County? They were even in the majority under Director Sorrow and exactly what did they do to reduce teen pregnancy, lower unemployment, reduce pverty, etc, etc.? Fact is our County has improved over the last decade in many areas and yes we have a long way to go BUT consistency and hard work are needed! That is precisely why MAGAZZU AND CO. should and WIL BE RE-ELECTED!! CONTINUE the progress of our County. RE-ELECT TOUGH LEADERS FOR TOUGH TIMES!! RE-ELECT MAGAZZU AND CO.!!

    Wrong again I only post with my real name. Keep on trying, better luck next time. Have a wonderful day and blessings to you my dear.

  6. Sell me a bridge says:

    No way! Lou Magazzu used the exact same printing company as Hudson County politicians that have been accused of being corrupt. How could that be true?

  7. DUMP the Maggot says:

    Here’s to the day when the name magazzu is just what it should be – a distant and painful memory of corruption in office.

  8. keep it real says:

    I don’t follow how The freeholders would be responsible for unemployment and low wages when the statistical info includes not only the prison population but also the significant number of “relatives” that move here to await the release of their kin. The statistics also include the significant number of illegals that reside in cumberland county.

    With respect to the democrats “light” where were all their good ideas when they were a part of the board.

  9. tryagain1 says:

    You really mean renegades when you talk about Democrats “light”. To listen to those 3 so called Independents you would think they never served or had all the collective years on the Board that they did. During that time they accomplished absolutely ZERO. Why on earth would they ever think the voters would return them to office? Except maybe to hear Cursin’ Jane Christy. Kind of funny hearing grandmom use the F word!

    This CRAP website has lost absolutly ant crediability it may have once had. It has been nothing but a constant and boring barrage of Magazzu bashing. Blaming everything on JUST Magazzu for every ill in the County and the World!! It is nothing more than a purely politcally partisan shrill for the Republicans. It is almost laughable except that it has hurt many innocent bystanders including Gary Simmerman. Shame on you Alex Dumbgotta!! Soon the election will be here and MAGAZZU WILL WIN and then these nasty viscious HATERS can climb slowlya nd deeply into their dark holes from whence they came!! RE-ELECT MAGAZZU AND CO. SEND A MESSAGE THAT THE HATERS HAVE FAILED IN THEIR DESPERATE ATTEMPTS TO HARM SO MANY PEOPLE!! MAGAZZU AND CO., TOUGH LEADRES FOR TOUGH TIMES!!

  11. DUMP the Maggot says:

    t1 has had his rant and once again changed the subject to how “innocent bystanders” have been hurt, supposedly by, but since he brought up the subject of people getting hurt, I have a few innocents to add to his list:

    Virginia Curliss – unceremoniously tossed off of the Improvement Authority at the insistence of Lou Magazzu to be replaced by one of his cronies

    Linda Forbes – thrown off of the HSAC because she had the audacity to question one of Lord Lou’s decisions

    Nate Pizzo – another casualty of the power hungry Lou; again so Lou could load the authority with lap dogs

    George Olivio – chosen by the Deerfield Township Committee to serve on the Improvement Authority – but Magazzu had other ideas and he knew he could not control George. Instead, Lou appoints none other than Joe Veight – otherwise known as “No Show Joe” and “Illegal Landlord Veight” again to give Magazzu direct control over things he has no business controlling

    These are but a few – there are others – many others and these folks, unlike Gary Simmerman, are VOLUNTEERS – not paid employees. Talk about hurting and insulting – Lou is the king of insult.

    And finally, what about the over 100 CHILDREN Lou personally hurt when he tried to force the consolidation of the Cumberland County VoTec with the County College???? These kids had their entire futures smashed, so that Lou could stroke his own ego with this hair-brained idea. Talk about innocents getting hurt – I wouldn’t trade you 100 Gary Simmermans for just one of those kids.

    Lou SHOULD be ashamed but he had demonstrated over and over and over again that he has no shame – he is a disgrace.

  12. tryagain1 says:

    LIES, LIES, AND MORE LIES!!! magazzu did none of those things especially the Vo- Tech situation!! The FREEHOLDER BOARD appoints and or removes people from boards for a number of reasons, not Magazzu!!! If it weren’t for Magazzu the Vo-Tech would be in real troubel as the State Commissioner shot down their idea, not Magazzu!! Just more lies from this crap forum in their attempt to unseat Magazzu! RE-ELECT MAGAZZU AND CO. TOUGHT LEADERS FOR TOUGH TIMES FOR OUR FUTURE!!

  13. DUMP the Maggot says:

    Lou (aka t1), your last post proves that you are nothing more than a cheap liar. Facts:
    It was LOU who stole the idea of combining the VoTec and the College from Ken Ender and ran straight to the Commissioner of Education and said, (paraphrasing here) – “Lucille, lookie at the marvelous idea I have for saving money. Let’s combine the VoTec and the College and will be a model for the rest of the state.” The Commissioner who has a Napoleon Complex that only rivals Magazzu, then decided to put a halt to the full time VoTec AFTER she had previously approved the full-time school. Because of LOU’s ambition and to look good in Trenton 100+ kids who had already enrolled in the full-time school, had their plans dashed. Thanks Lou!

    Yes, the freeholder does appoint and remove people from boards – that is the only half-truth to your post. But Lou, your temper tantrums when you don’t get your way with appointments, is legendary. And the other freeholders are lied to and coerced until they relent. It’s Lou’s way or the crybaby. Lou, you know it, but as an ego maniac, you won’t admit it.

    Go home and get a real job.

  14. DUMP the Maggot says:

    ……… And Lou, WHO came up with the idea to replace the individuals listed in my original post???? Now THINK Before you answer….Enough of the lies. THIS time try, Try TRY to tell the truth. I know it is difficult for you to tell the truth, but tryagian to no tell a lie.
