Three of our freeholders, one a reverend, are despicable liars. As I pointed out last week, they made promises to every taxpayer in Cumberland county to “take $550,000 in savings from the Austino-Rainear cuts and apply it directly to property tax relief”. This was a promise that these liars all understood was based on false numbers. The savings would be much less, when you account for the fact that Austino is such an incompetent that he had to hire an extra Under Sheriff to fulfil the duties for which he is apparently unqualified. It was much less when the Assistant Surrogate refused to take the pay-cut promised.
These freeholders, the lying reverend Dunkins, Jannarone and Whelan all voted to approve pay increases to Doug Rainear, with three years left on his term. Doug Rainear is a liar, because he also promised to “cut the salaries of themselves and their assistants $110,000 per year”. Doug states, in an article in today’s Daily Journal:
“It was a difficult decision, but my circumstances are different than a few years ago.”
My question to Doug is this, what exactly changed from two years ago when you said that the full salary for this positions was “ungodly,” “unfair” and “not justifiable”? What exactly makes the salary acceptable now that you want it?
I will answer that question. Doug Rainear has three years left on his term. He knows that he is unelectable. The last three years salary is the base figure that a pension is calculated. This thief conspired with the Democrat freeholder board, blatantly violating the trust of the taxpayers and breaking the main promise upon which their campaigns were based.
