Again, you heard it here first – here it is in The News:
Lou Magazzu on Tuesday announced publicly he would not be seeking a new term as chairman of the Cumberland County Democratic Organization.
The county Democratic Party convened later that evening at the Ramada Inn, in Vineland, where the CCDO executive committee elected Bob Balicki and Doug Long as the new party heads.
The organization has changed their bylaws to allow for co-chairs and their election was approved by a vote of 44-1.
County Jail Warden Balicki had recently worked with Long, who was a campaign manager for freeholder and sheriff election campaigns here.
Long said their “skill sets meshed” following the partnerships.
Unfortunately Long is a party hack that offers nothing but more of the same underhanded tactics that Lou is well known for. I have high hopes that Balicki will bring a sense of dignity back to the position.
