I just received this press release from the Cumberland County Regular Republican Organization:
Republican Chairman says Freeholders Whelan, Jannarone and Dunkins should resign for placing Cumberland County in this mess
MILLVILLE – “Look out Cumberland County. The promise breaking Freeholders are at it again,” Cumberland County Regular Republican Organization Chairman Bob Greco said.
Last month, under the cover of darkness, in a last minute addition to the Freeholder meeting agenda, the board voted 5 – 2 in favor of a promise breaking salary increase to Surrogate Doug Rainear. On tonight’s agenda is a resolution reversing the promise breaking salary increase passed last month.
“If nothing else these people have guts,” Greco said. “Last month they voted to break a promise and give a raise they aggressively campaigned against. Now they are going to introduce a resolution to reverse that raise in direct violation of state law.”
“It’s one thing to break a promise,” Greco added. It’s an entirely different thing to knowingly place a resolution on the agenda in direct violation of state law. The sponsor of this resolution should hang their head in shame when it comes up.”
“Freeholders Whelan, Jannarone and Dunkins should submit their resignations at tonight’s meeting for placing the citizens of Cumberland County in this mess,” Greco said.
