Front page of The News this morning, “No action against Edwards“.
Todd Edwards will remain a Cumberland County Utilities Authority commissioner going into 2010.
Cumberland County freeholders took no action against the CCUA commissioner – who missed eight out of 12 monthly CCUA board meetings in 2009 – at their last meeting of 2009, despite county personnel liaison Jane Jannarone stating this week that the issue of Edwards absences is still a concern.
Lou Magazzu’s freeholder puppets sent a message loud and clear. The taxpayers an d rate-payers do not matter, and the CCUA will continue to pay Todd Edwards and providing health benefits for him not to show up for meetings. This is what happens if you are in Lou’s protected class of cronies. There is absolutely no accountability.
Previously Lou pretended not to be aware of edwards attendance problems. However, Nancy Sungenis is indicating that Lou may not have been truthful:
Sungenis said that the freeholder board has been aware of Edwards absences.
“We always have sent the absentee records to the freeholder board,” she said.
