NO TV FOR YOU!

(click image to enlarge)

In the name of open and transparent government, many towns throughout the area televise their township committee meeting, Middletown however does not.

What are Tony Fiore and the Middletown Republican majority trying to hide, why wont they agree to televise Middletown’s Township Committee meetings?

It’s already been determined that there has been grant money available in the past to do so. It has been said that an informed electorate is a knowledgeable electorate.

Are the Middletown Republicans afraid to televise meeting because they worry about what voters will learn if the channel of their televisions are tuned into a Township Committee meeting? Indifference by some, arrogance by other, a township attorney who speaks instead of letting duly elected officials answer questions and who sneers and snickers at residents who address the Committee, are just a small sample of what residents would learn if they could watch township meetings in the comfort of their homes.

Your 5 Minutes Are Up

This is what takes place at a Middletown Township Committee meeting if you’re one of the brave who stand in front of the dais to ask a question. Just don’t go over the 5 minute time allotment otherwise you’ll not get an answer.

>The Star-Ledger’s Drew Sheneman nailed today’s editorial cartoon. Very funny and i’m sure many other thought the same.

I’ll give the Governor some credit, when he calls people names he does it like an adult. I thought it took a great deal of restraint to refer to the NJEA as ‘political thugs’ instead of ‘stinky doody heads.’
