>GOP candidates are bad for Middletown

>What is the Middletown GOP’s motivation in this campaign that is affecting their judgment? It certainly isn’t dealing with the real issues that Middletown residents are facing on an everyday basis ” like putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their family’s head.

A possible motive could be covering up damage this Republican-controlled government has thrown in the face of Middletown for the past 27 years. The contamination at the Arts Center and Town Hall has been ignored, to the point where a state agency had to step in and start charging fees for the township’s oversights in the project.

When I’ve walked neighborhoods, what residents keep telling me is they simply can’t afford their homes anymore. They can’t afford their mortgages, their children’s college education or their taxes.

Mayor Gerard Scharfenberger’s praise of Middletown being in Money Magazine’s Top 100 Places to Live in the Country forgets some things: Middletown isn’t taking enough care of its own right now and the quality of life has declined.

What has this administration done to maintain the quality of life its residents enjoy? It has turned away many young people in its mismanagement of affordable housing, allowed properties to remain unsafely contaminated, and pretended as if FEMA was unreal, like it “couldn’t happen to us.”

Deputy Mayor Pam Brightbill and her running mate, have charged me with raising taxes in a town where I don’t yet sit on the committee. They have made assumptions, and the only reason for this is because they are running against me in a political election.

In exercising their apparent judgment, they are choosing to attack opponents, literally fabricating issues and spinning truth. The facts remain, but the truth is this: The Middletown GOP administration is on a path that will ruin this community, if allowed to fester any further.

It is evident their judgment has not been influenced by the public at all. The Middletown GOP is plagued by self-serving motivations, cronyism and partisan gifts handed out by chairman Peter Carton.

>Obama to Leave Campaign Trail for Ill Grandmother

>On Thursday, Sen. Barack Obama will “travel to Hawaii to see his 86-year-old grandmother, who has fallen ill,” according to Politico.

“The change of plans means Obama will scrap scheduled rallies Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa, and Madison, Wisc. He will instead head to Indianapolis, Ind., for a morning event, leave for Hawaii and return to the campaign trail Saturday.”

>McCain Giving Up on Colorado

>CNN reports that top officials of Sen. John McCain’s campaign are “making tough decisions” as they now see Colorado, New Mexico and Iowa no longer winnable.

Instead, the campaign’s “risky strategy” is counting on Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and a comeback in Pennsylvania.

The McCain campaign responds: “We see the race tightening both internally and in public polling. We are within striking distance in the key battleground states we need to win.”
