Greco calls on Magazzu to apologize to Kirstein
At last night’s Cumberland County Freeholder meeting Lou Magazzu chose to use the occasion to launch attacks against Republican candidate for Freeholder, Carl Kirstein.
At the meeting Kirstein, acting on a previous suggestion made by Freeholder Bill Whelan, approached the microphone and offered several specific areas where the Freeholder Board could save the taxpayers additional money. Magazzu, rather than accepting sound business advice immediately launched into an attack on Kirstein for cost saving measures he instituted as Mayor of Upper Deerfield Township nearly 20 years ago.
“Attempting to attack a former mayor’s record is one thing, but to use his own revisionist history to do so is another,” Cumberland County Republican Chairman Bob Greco said.
“I don’t know if Magazzu was upset that a business leader and proven cost-cutting mayor was standing at the microphone proving him wrong or if he simply loves creating his own version of history but he certainly owes Carl Kirstein an apology for his actions last night,” Greco stated.
“Cumberland County taxpayers deserve better than Lou Magazzu practicing the same old bully style politics and Corzine tactics,” Greco said. “After all, it is Lou Magazzu who is responsible for the mess our County is in.”
