I am working on a detailed article on the inner workings of Lou Magazzu’s freeholder board, inasmuch as contracts are awarded not necessarily to the lowest, most qualified bidders, but to the most politically connected.
I have been pulled in a thousand direction this week, but here is a teaser of what is to come. The first scan is a document Comtec Systems, Inc. of Vineland NJ that they were not one of the selected firms for bid 09-31 for “interior telephone and data line wiring services.”
The second scan is a worksheet created by Cumberland County Purchasing Department showing all bidders and the total bids – of which Comtec was the lowest.
Stay tuned for the nuances and intrigue, who paid who, who contributed to who, who is related to who in the future installments. Find out why our local jobs are going to Camden and Mercer county rather than to a local company. This is yet another story that our local media is ignoring.
