Lou Magazzu’s friend, Al Kelly, rips off taxpayers once again.
I have to thank my friend Haystacks Calhoun for the tip that led to this expose. He directed me to the legislative publication about the deplorable performance of non-profit agencies that received millions upon millions of tax dollars to weatherize homes.
Al Kellie’s Tri-County received by far the lion’s share, at $8.5 million to weatherize 1107 homes. They have only succeeded in weatherizing 155 home. So far they have expended about a half a million, and have a bit more than $411,000 approved. The rest of the money, it seems, is in limbo – doing absolutely no good for anybody.
But where is Lou? Why haven’t Van Drew, Milam and Albano made a stink about this drastic waste? Could it be because of Kelly’s GOTV efforts, almosy always ensuring victories for the Democrats.
Why is our Freeholder board silent? Perhaps the deafening silence has something to do with Al Kelly’s “Progress Through Partnerships” donating $4,000 to the Pepitone/Thompson campaign?
This is politics at its worst. Al Kelly can get away with wasting over $7.5 million, while families in Cumberland County could definitely use the assistance.
