Dunkins admits he doesn’t have a clue what is happening under his oversight

If you have been reading the local papers, you might have heard about the D-SNAP money to aid victims of Hurricane Irene that Dunkins had no clue about.

Distribution of U.S. Department of Agriculture Disaster Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program funds will continue from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today at the Cumberland County One-Stop Career Center at Delsea Drive and Park Boulevard in Vineland. Those who are eligible can get as much as $200 to buy food with the so-called D-SNAP money.

Dunkins is the freeholder liaison to the One-stop Center. MWatch has reported previously on the many deficiencies in the Cumberland County One-Stop Center, and yet another is now front page news.

Republican Cumberland County Freeholder Sam Fiocchi, who seeking one of the Assembly seats, wants Democratic Cumberland County Freeholder James Dunkins to be stripped of his liaison duties involving the one-stop career center.

“What happened …at the (center) was a disgrace to Cumberland County and someone needs to be held accountable,” Fiocchi said. “Our residents don’t deserve to be treated that way.”

Dunkins, who is seeking election to the final year of an unexpired term on the freeholder board, said he was never notified about Tuesday’s event.

We have federal disaster aide coming into Cumberland County, but apparently Dunkins is too busy campaigning to worry about his job duties.I remember several years ago when Lou Magazzu, in a Freeholder meeting, publicly excoriated an employee over the missed opportunity at securing some public grant money for their department. Apparently there are different sets of rules for the ruling class. Dunkins shrugs his shoulders, and shirks responsibility, blaming one or more other entities for his lack of involvement and oversight. His excuse,it seems, is that somebody else should have told him to do his job.

Once again Cumberland County comes out with a black-eye. We look foolish, asking for special treatment, a special dispensation for an extension because those in charge, those receiving a county paycheck could not find the time to actually do their job. And then we wonder why this county is in the sad fiscal shape it is in today?

  1. I went past the one stop ctr today cars were parked across the street on Delsea Dr and also on Park ave. They say its been like this all week. How much fraud is going on for $200 a house hold. I would hope not but one just has to wonder. Look at some of the vehicles just makes you wonder.

    You just aren’t being fair. If Dunkins calls his buds and says come on down and get your free stuff you yell and cry. Here we have a Freeholder who is trying to save the government some money by encouraging people to take care of themselves and you jump all over him. Can’t have it both ways.

    @ Barney—-Freeholder Dunkins isn’t supposed to call his ” buds” to get free stuff, like ever. The entire freeholder Board is responsible for getting aid to the citizens of CC who may be in need. Free stuff for “buds”? Maybe someone needs to take an even closer look @ Freeholder Dunkins.

    What a scam. I saw people leaving carrying upwards of $900. I heard people laughing in the parking lot about getting over on the system and getting free money when they had lost nothing. What was the worst I heard a woman say that she was never voting republican because they’d never have let it happen. (as she was laughing…God’s honest truth, saw with my own eyes). The government’s broke and they still insist on throwing away the money. The one guy who received $600 told me he didn’t even own a home, and the power had gone out for only 4 hours in his apartment, but he couldn’t resist the opportunity to cash in on this.
    It was sickening to watch.
