Obama’s First Year Was A Success Despite Common Wisdom Of the Rightwing

Despite the common wisdom and all the nigh-saying by the conservative right wing and the “Republicants”, President Obama’s first year in office has been a major success.

To gage that success just look at some of the legislation that was passed during his first year:

  • $787 billion stimulus package that by many accounts,including the right wing, conservative American Enterprise Group, have said that the stimulus package worked.
  • Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay act.
  • Repeal of the Embryonic Stem Cell research ban.
  • The confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor
  • The House passed climate change legislation.
  • Soon to be completed health care reform.

Middletown: It’s Your Hometown Newsletter Issue 3 Is Available

The third and final “It’s Your Town” Middletown Newsletter for 2009 is now available online for your reading pleasure.

The newsletter discusses the events of the last Township Committee meeting of 2009 which entailed the passage of several resolutions that may be of interest to residents due to the fact that they established new pay rates and salary increases for township employees.
The newsletter also discusses Resolution-09-283, the controversial resolution that attempted to borrow money from the as yet appropriated 2010 budget to pay for year end medical expenses for township employees and their families. This resolution did not pass and will be up for re-vote during the next scheduled township committee meeting.
