Heard It In The Hallways….Middletown’s Director of Parks & Rec, Gregg Silva "Forced" Into Retirement, Big Changes coming to Department
Our second quote of the day comes from newly reappointed Middletown Mayor Tony Fiore, from statements made to reporter Kevin Penton in todays Asbury Park Press concerning the appointments of members to (or lack thereof) the Middletown Human Rights Commission and its former Chairperson Carolyn Scwhebel.
“You can say it’s political, you can say it’s personal choice,” Fiore said. “She doesn’t work well with the town.”
Mrs. Scwhebel recently sent a letter to the editor, Middletown Human Rights Commission Being Abolished by Attrition, to local publication (this blog included) that expressed her concerns at not being reappointed to the commission.
This quote warms my heart today:
“…I pledge to the people of Middletown, from Lincroft to Leonardo and Oak Hill to Chapel Hill, that you will get nothing less than 100 percent of me as your deputy mayor,” Steve Massell said during his post swearing-in address at the township’s annual reorganization meeting – Middletown-Patch
Does giving 100% effort mean Steve Massell, as acting Deputy Mayor of Middletown, will finally get all those “Welcome to Middletown” signs painted like he pledged to do 2 years ago when first elected? Or does it mean that he will not play on his iPad during meetings and pay attention to what’s going on? More than likely, giving 100% effort means that he will finally have more to say at Township Committee meets other than “No Comment”
