MWatch is a non-partisan political watchdog group focused on tracking and reporting the abuses of power practiced by the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders. This board seems to have forgotten that they were elected to serve the people, and not to profit their own power base.
MWatch is a news website – publishing the news that the “real” local media for some reason or another chooses to ignore. MWatch is a web based subsidiary of Inferno Newspaper, of Cumberland County, NJ.
Louis Magazzu, former head of the Cumberland County, NJ, Democratic Party and the former Cumberland County Freeholder Director was once the leading power broker in the area. Under his tenure, he built a regime. The remnants of that regime remain entrenched in county government.
He plaed hard-fisted politics and took no prisoners. That would be okay except for the fact that his campaign contributors and supporters seemed to receive special privileges. County money was frequently funneled to his friends, while other organizations are left out. And that continued even after his resignation.
Our mission is to report on every word and deed of that regime, to reveal the dirty underbelly of Cumberland County politics. And also to serve as a caution to the Republican freeholders that if they sink to such low levels and abuse their power, there are people watching.
