IT SMELLS

What a bunch of feces! After six months in which the Dvision of Local Government Services conveniently misplaced the council's request for help in filling the position CFO they finally responded to correspondence from citizens as well as Councilman Storch by notifying both the Mayor and Council members that is if they had not appointed a CFO in 30 days the guilty parties would each be five $35 a day.

The political farce continues. The bureaucratic career politicians in Trenton, who have probably an allegiance to the Democrats administration that appointed most of them to their jobs once again refused to act responsibly and instead threatened to punish the petitioner as well as the "villain".

The Mayor without lifting a finger has become victorious, not vindicated. She can now appoint any flunky with any type of credentials that she wishes. The Council has been placed by our state government in an. untenable position. their right to approve or disapprove the Mayor's appointment has been taken away from them by state fiat.

We the citizens have once again been literally screwed by our state government.  I would hope that someone more erudite than myself would draft a protest document for signature by as many citizens as possible [and I will be one of them] and submitted it directly to Gov. Christie. This petition should include a request for his personal review of the fiscal situation and our city

In the meantime there is little that we can do as individuals, other than try to get increased publicity in all the Media especially the Christie haters.

  1. I think your take is on target Doc. With the portending elevation of Al Restaino as Acting Director of Administration & Finance, the loose money folks are gaining a head of steam. More people whose modus operandi is enabling insiders to feed off the public trough isn't Plainfield-friendly. A City Council with an independent streak, that's what we need. One willing to be fined, but unleashed from the typical groveling for party approval, and the motley crew of polticial functionaries that pass through town in various and sundry administrative roles.

  5. This is a howling insult to the people of Plainfield and to democracy. To be fined 35$ a day for doing, as Chris Rock would say, 'what your supposed to do' is just unfathomable. The Council is mandated by law to be fiscally responsible and can not hire any old jert, if not they can be fined as individuals.
    It is the Mayors unwillingness to actively seek and bring forward qualified people for the council to approve that has created this crisis. It makes one wonder 'what may she be hiding.'

    The way I see it is that the only way out of this is to recall the Mayor.

    And for the state to start a forensic audit of the city finances.
