Unauthorized Democratic campaign signs in Pennsauken

Pennsauken’s Signgate continues.  As I understand it today was the first day the Democratic campaign for Pennsauken Township Committee was distributing lawn signs and already complaints are being reported of residents finding signs on their property that they did not authorize.  The proper way to distribute lawn signs is to get residents permission every year, assuming that properties change hands, not automatically place lawn signs on properties because they did so in the past.  Apparently this did not occur to the Pennsauken Democratic candidates.  Plastering our town with their signs would give the impression that they have a lot of support in town – and that’s apparently all that matters.   Continue reading “Unauthorized Democratic campaign signs in Pennsauken”

Pennsauken Township needs to enforce a social media policy for officials, employees and board members

We’ve seen Pennsauken Township officials, employees and board members speaking out quite a bit recently on social media about the upcoming election.  It’s no secret that we live in a partisan town.   The Democratic party and their handpicked and groomed successors have run things for over 30-years.  But have they forgotten that they serve the residents of Pennsauken and not the Democratic party?   Continue reading “Pennsauken Township needs to enforce a social media policy for officials, employees and board members”

The Longfellow park survey was handled like most everything in Pennsauken Township government *UPDATE*

After last year’s Pennsauken Township Committee race the Pennsauken School District Bond Referendum became the hot topic in town.  Many may recall at the time I was a supporter of most of the referendum with the exception of the plan to  build a park at the site of the to be demolished Longfellow School.  The Pennsauken School District’s plan was to use $500,000 from the referendum to build a community park once the school was demolished.  The total cost of the project was $800,000.  That included $300,000 to demolish the school and $500,000 to build the park.  I felt and continue to feel this is a gross misuse of tax payer funding. Continue reading “The Longfellow park survey was handled like most everything in Pennsauken Township government *UPDATE*”

Independent Media

When I started the Positively Pennsauken News Blog earlier this year the idea was to have independent media in Pennsauken.  All Around Pennsauken is informative about township events but is operated by Pennsauken Township and is not independent.  I often see it as a promotional tool for our local elected officials.  Last year there was a Pennsauken based political story I tried to pitch to the news media.  The feedback I received was that a story about Pennsauken politics was simply too small to attract the media’s interest.  I felt our residents deserved a place where they could read factual researched based information about our town.  I think the people agree as this blog is gaining popularity and is approaching 10,000 hits recently.  I pay for the hosting and the domain and do not monetize this blog.  I provide it as a service to my fellow residents.

Blind faith and Pennsauken Democrats

The dictionary defines blind faith as “belief without true understanding or perception”.  Bruce Springsteen once said “Blind faith in your leaders, or in anything, will get you killed”.  Why then do Pennsauken Democrats expect residents to blindly support them?

Pennsauken officials stack the deck yet again

The Pennsauken Car & Bike show is billed as a community event.  I talked in a previous blog post about how as a car enthusiast I enjoy Pennsauken’s yearly show.   What I didn’t realize was that this was an event for Democratic leaders in town to showcase their Township Committee candidates while attempting to block Republicans candidates from doing the same. Continue reading “Pennsauken officials stack the deck yet again”

Pennsauken officials have kept our taxes flat for 6 consecutive years but at what cost?

Pennsauken Township Committee officials love to tell us how they’ve kept our taxes flat for 6 years in a row.  It is their go to when anyone criticizes township government “But we’ve kept your taxes flat 6 years in a row!”.  It appears to be the crowing achievement of Pennsauken’s Township Committee.  But how did they accomplish it and at what cost?
