Wed. Guest Post (sort of)
I received today, a copy of a letter sent to Mayor Hall and Council Members dated March 14, 2008. It was signed by "A very embarrassed Edgewater Park Republican".
The person who sent me this copy asked that I not mention their name, because they are concerned that the people who mailed it, will retaliate against them and their family. After reading the letter, I am sure you can understand their concern.
I took the liberty to black out a statement made in the 5th paragraph, because I have no proof of the alleged facts. I left in the statements made against Mr. Dovey, because he was an elected committeeman, he is the Chairman of the local Republican Party, and he can respond to the comments made against him, via this blog, as he has done in the past.
I must point out the following statements made in this letter that are outright lies and are a deliberate attempt to damage the reputation of this Blog, Mrs Dimond, Mrs Donahue, Mr. Ryder, Mr. West and Mr. Dovey.
The statement made in the 4th paragraph, 1st sentence is a bold faced lie. See March 9, 2008 Post for the truth. Mr Daly's sons name was not used.
The statement made in the 5th paragraph, that "Mr Dovey informed all of us that Chuck Ryder and Dawn Diamond will be running for town council in the upcoming election", is wrong. Chuck Ryder and Joseph Galgoci are the Republican Committee Candidates according to the BCT, in its April 8th edition, page A3.
The statement made in the 2nd paragraph, that the Masonic Home is the "new hiding place mentioned on the blog" is wrong. I would be happy if they would let me use the facilities, but the truth is, I am mobile. After all the Committee Thought Police are everywhere.
I must tell you that I do not think this letter is the work of one person. It smacks of the efforts of our Mayor, Judy Hall, Jim Daly, Tom Pullion and John Alexander. I recognize the similar tactics in their campaign literature from the past. Judy and Jim are masters in the "art of dirty gossip."
See the letter below,
The Edgewater Park Reporter
The reporter has learned tonight from an unnamed source, that a copy of this letter was read at the meeting of the Sewer Authority this evening, and Mayor Hall is calling people and reading the letter to them. I also learned that the Authority is going to spend $20K on the New Authority Office. So much for saving Authority money. More on this in a future post.
