Remember the job market that was booming? The job market that has reflected more available jobs then available talent for the first time in recorded U.S. history? The 3.7% unemployment rate? The U.S. economy that’s about to set a record for the longest expansion? The record breaking stock market? The U.S. once again becoming a leader on the world stage? The safety and security of our nation being a priority? President’s Trump’s America first strategy? Remember when our President was working with Congress to make the lives of the American people better? #MeToo. Like it was yesterday.
A few weeks ago on the Positively Pennsauken Facebook page Pennsauken Deputy Mayor Betsy McBride ended an exchange with residents by saying “Signing off. I don’t live in social media world“. Apparently the two Democratic candidates for Pennsauken Township Committee don’t see the value in “social media world” either since they’ve not bothered to engage residents on social media (other than a few selfies and posts talking about things they had nothing to do with). Unfortunately their Internet trolls are out in full force speaking for them. Continue reading “Internet trolls and Pennsauken Democrats”
I’ve been asking myself a lot lately “Where’s Marco and Jessica?” I’ve given our Democratic Township Committee candidates a primer on social media engagement. I’ve shared the statistics by age group of who goes to the Internet to research information. Our Republican Township Committee candidates have given them a great lead to follow but they’ve just not bothered engaging with voters on social media. Apparently Democrats in Pennsauken are so confident you’ll continue to vote for them they don’t feel the need to engage with voters. Continue reading “Where’s Marco?”
Most candidates running for office talk about change. For some it’s “hope and change” or “change you can count on” but most talk about change without being specific about the change they offer. The simple word change appears to be a word that makes voters believe a candidate will make their lives better. For Pennsauken Township Committee candidates Sabrina Winkler and Lisa Eckel change is not a campaign slogan. Sabrina and Lisa offer the change that Pennsauken residents need the most. Continue reading “Change”
I came across an interesting article from the International City/County Management Association entitled “Your Social Media Strategy – Social Media Is The Way Communities Network Now”. The significance of this article for me is that I’ve seen many residents on social media complain about things like Pennsauken Township government not accepting payments and forms online or engaging residents on social media. Additionally a week or so ago when Pennsauken Deputy Mayor Betsy McBride said to me on the Positively Pennsauken Facebook page “I don’t live on social media world” I made the case that Pennsauken Township government should be engaging #TheOther35000 online. This article further proves the point why Pennsauken Township government should be engaging residents on social media. Continue reading “Pennsauken Township Government Social Media and Transparency”
It appears the All Around Pennsauken domain is being used to design and store campaign materials for the Democratic candidates for Pennsauken Township Committee. As I understand it All Around Pennsauken is a tax payer funded Pennsauken Township resource. Are the Democrats in Pennsauken so brazen that they would use a township resource to assist in the campaign of their candidates? Continue reading “Are Pennsauken Township resources being used to help Democratic candidates?”
I have to hand it to Democratic Pennsauken Township Committee candidates Marco DiBattista and Jessica Rafeh. With their campaign slogan “We Are Pennsauken” they are not even trying to hide that they are part of the power broker system in Pennsauken. The are not hiding that they are the hand picked successors. They are not hiding that they are part of the small group of people who rule Pennsauken while #TheOther35000 have no voice and no power. Candidate DiBattista is not trying to hide that he serves as Treasurer and Office Manager at the Pennsauken Sewerage Authority while running for Pennsauken Township Committee (the body that makes appointments to the Pennsauken Sewerage Authority). They are not trying to hide that they represent the party that has ruled over us for over 30 years. They proclaim loudly “WE ARE PENNSAUKEN!” Unfortunately for DiBattista and Rafeh they are wrong. WE THE RESIDENTS ARE PENNSAUKEN and we are ready to take the power back! Continue reading “We are Pennsauken!”
We live under a power broker system in Pennsauken (and Camden County). The Democrats in Pennsauken spoon feed power to the same small group of chosen people while the rest of Pennsauken’s residents are expected to obey and have no voice. Lisa and Sabrina represent a change. A return of power to the people of Pennsauken. An end to over 30-years of rule by the same small group. A voice for the other 35,000 residents. Continue reading “#TheOther35000”
