Okay – I have to preface this post with this disclaimer. First, I do not know if, and if, where Lou Magazzu had access to free cars. I received a half-dozen emails regarding his vehicular situation. However, the following is fact. On March 25, 2010, the Cumberland County Board of Chosen freeholders unanimously awarded two car companies with a county contract, as follows:
6. Resolution 2010-171
Resolution Awarding an Open-Ended Contract for Providing Vehicle Repair
Services for the County of Cumberland and the Cumberland County Cooperative
Contract Purchasing System Identifier #181-CCCCPS (Bob Novick Chevrolet,
Inc.; Quality Lincoln Mercury Hyundai, Inc.)
So I have questions. Did Lou receive vehicles gratis from the above mentions Lincoln-Mercury dealer? If he did, then why did he not disclose this information on his ethics reports? If he did, were they reported on his federal income tax returns?
I have to reiterate, this is all conjecture and rumor at this point. Hopefully those in the know can shed some light.
