Edgewater park Fire District Election Saturday 2 PM till 9 PM



We have a Fire District Election Saturday 2/21/09 2 PM till 9 PM at the Municipal Building.

John Loftus is running unopposed for the Fire Board. 

An important item concerning this election came to my attention. I received an e-mail with an attached letter last evening, that Mr. Jim Daly is conducting a write in campaign to oppose John. The e-mail message also reminded the recipients, that the Fire Tax has remained the same while John Loftus has served on the Fire Board. Mr. Daly's record while serving on the Township Committee and Sewer Board shows nothing but a history of large tax increases.
Say What about your tax record Mr. Jim?


The e-mail also pointed out that the Fire Board is the only remaining Edgewater Park Governing Body not controlled by Mr. Daly and friends.

The Fire Budget is $309,900.00 and the Fire Tax Rate is $0.100, the same as last year. To bad our Township Officials are not able to run the township as efficiently as the Elected Fire Board.

The following is a copy of a letter that many of you will receive from Commissioner Tim Joo. This was sent to me with the email about the election and write-in campaign. 

Reminder!
Edgewater Park Residents

Your Fire District Elections are being held this Saturday, February 21, 2009 at the Municipal Building betwee the hours of 2:00 PM and 9:00 PM.

YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT!

Although the ballot indicates an incumbent is running un-opposed, a small group of individuals are pushing for a write-in candidate.

Fire District elections have an extremely low voter turnout. If you do not make the effort to vote for John Loftus, the incumbent, this small group will get their candidate elected.

The current commissioners have maintained the existing level of fire protection with no increase in taxes! Please show your support!

We all thank you for your anticipated support!

Respectfully,

Timothy F. Joo
Commissioner

Please vote this Saturday and re-elect an official who is looking out for us by having no Fire Tax increase this year. Please reward John Loftus with your vote and confidence.

Can we vote for the Fire Board to replace the Township Committee people and Administrator?
Lets have a Edgewater Park Tax Tea Party at the Green Cafe.
