The Bridgeton News and the Daily Journal had very different reports of the dedication of the new solar panel manufacturing plant in Millville. The News reported that Mayor Shannon gave major credit for the deal to Don Ayres, the town’s Economic Development Director. Also recognized were the state funders who helped lure in the business. I didn’t see any mention of Lou Magazzu.
The Daily Journal,on the other hand, opens its article with a quote from Lou. Lou had zilch, nada, nothing to do with bringing this business to Millville. Yet when it comes time to grap credit, guess who’s first in line? And it’s interesting that the Daily Journal stand ready to aid and abet his headline-grabbing antics a week before the election. It’s also interesting that in the DJ article the Millville officials are an afterthought.
