Edgewater Park's mayortom needs your vote this November
Mayortom is counting on your vote this November, so that he can continue the runaway municipal spending and runaway Property Tax increases. Mayortom is counting on the fact that the voter registration in Edgewater Park is overwhelmingly Democrat and that most Democrat Voters will vote straight party lines in a Presidential Election.

Now he counting on your vote this November
Do not let mayortom's strategy of taking your vote for granted keep him in office, to continue his policies that are causing your property tax to increase at a rate far greater than the rate of inflation.
Mayortom will tell you of all the great things he has done for the town. He will tell you how he attracted the Super Wawa, Dunkin Donuts, Jonathan Motors Used Cars, Auto Zone, Burlington Coat Factory, and Silver Park Phase 2 & 3.
What mayortom doesn't want you to know is that with all of these wonderful ratables, our taxes still increased faster then any time in our town's history. Now he will tell you the only way to stabilize or lower the tax rate is for the town to encourage residential development. Mayortom will tell you new residential development will lower your taxes, but lets examine the facts.
Did your taxes go down when mayortom gave the Burlington Coat Factory the 30 year sweetheart tax deal? Did your taxes go down after the completion of the 160 homes in Silver Park? Did your taxes go down after the completion of the Super Wawa, Dunkin Donuts, Jonathan Motors or Auto Zone? The answer is no!
Now mayortom is pushing for a developer to build 350 Condo/Town Houses that will have rental units included. This project is slated for the old Drive Inn, Old Kings site and Commercial Lots along the entrance to Silver Park. Do you think this 350 residential will lower our taxes based on the tax history after Silver Park was completed?
Don't be taken in by mayortom's strategy, you can split your vote in November and vote for your parties presidential candidate.
Mayortom has been on Township Committee since 1999 and the only accomplishments he can point to, are the bad deals he pushed and voted for. Not one of his ideas lowered your taxes. You can send a message to mayortom, the Township Committee and the Township Administrator that you will no longer support this type of government, by not reelecting mayortom.
Jim Daly is supposedly moving to Delran, and/or hiring himself as the Administrator of the Emergency Squad, so he may not run for re-election. Jim Daly is as responsible for the tax increases as mayortom because he is supportive of the same policies.
