The link above is a PDF file of the Cumberland County Code of Ethics. I am sorry, it was sent to me upside down – but that doesn’t really matter because it has never been used. Freeholder Director Bill Whelan has no intentions of abiding by the Code of Ethics. And we know that Lou Magazzu sees it as a challenge to overcome!
Why hasn’t this code of ethics been used? Tony Surace seems to think all is fine with the Democratic Party in Cumberland. he completely ignored the scandals with this statement:
“But this is a new day. Since my retirement has been a void in my life, and I believe that serving as county freeholder will grant me another opportunity to have a positive impact on peoples’ lives. If elected, I will adhere to the same principles that defined me as a successful coach and educator – honesty, discipline, integrity, teamwork and a passion for serving others.”
Tony, if you had integrity, you would not have stabbed one of your star athletes, a man that worshiped the ground you walked on, in the back. Tony, I really fear that teamwork word – we now what the Lou Magazzu brand of teamwork is, and it prohibits men and women that might have a sense of morals from standing up for what is right, and towing the Lou Magazzu Party Line as innocent peoples’ lives are chewed up and spit out by the machine. Whelan, the puppet, is not in charge. He has adamantly refused to demand Lou Magazzu’s resignation – his jellyfish-like backbone quivering in his masters shadow.
It is time for real leadership int his county, and it is clear that the Democrats are not up to the task.I fear the ONLY reason that the D’s will do what is right is because this website is going to continue to force the issue.
Whelan needs to begin assuming the role of Freeholder director. Surace needs to approach Jody Farabello and explain his treacherous actions. I had hopes – but it just seem that the Party of D’s in Cumberland insists in wallowing in the quagmire of dirty politics.
