The three expose’s I did on the campaign contributions and expenditures on three of the Freeholder candidates are an ill omen. They show a lop-sided tendency of these candidates to not only receive the bulk of their campaign financing from outside the county, but also a penchant to spent outside the county. I don’t know about you, but I expect my local elected officials to SUPPORT the LOCAL ECONOMY!
Here is the run down of contributions to the three main candidates, from Businesses Inside and Outside Cumberland County.
Cumberland County – $4,000
Outside the county – $13,500
Cumberland County – $2,500
Outside the county – $6,000
Cumberland County – $11,800
Outside the county – $24,000
Or, let’s combine them all to get a better picture of just exactly who wants Team Whelan to maintain control of the county:
Cumberland County – $18,300
Outside the county – $43,500
I am sorry folks, but this pattern should disturb any resident that is sick and tired of seeing our jobs shipped to Camden and Gloucester Counties. We have the HIGHEST UNEMPLOYMENT in the state! The few jobs that this current administration has had the power to bring in have been shipped to George Norcross cronies. And now we are seeing that if elected, their allegiance will most definitely be to those that supported their campaigns. You cannot convince me differently, and anyone that thinks that things will change if they are re-elected is foolish.
