Guest Long time resident Posted April 21 Report Share Posted April 21 Anyone who has a genuine interest in public service are always faced with opposition whether it be honest criticism or fabricated lies that are very common in Kearny. Many people have said to me that they would love to run for office but are discouraged because of the gutter political environment displayed by this administration over the years. The SANTOS GAME PLAN is to win at any cost in retaining power not just for a government standpoint but a personal standpoint as well. To explain this we need to see the benefits that have enriched this group of public officials. Listed are the as follows, Mayor Alberto Santos Clerk to the Hudson County Commissioner's $100 plus thousand dollars a year plus car. 2. Councilwoman Carol Jean Doyle work's for the Hudson County Law Department 3. Former Councilwoman Susan MaCurrie also works in the Hudson County Law Department 3. Councilman Richard Knopka works for the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission as a Supervisor at $100 plus thousand dollars a year. Certainly government works for them and some the decisions that have been made over the years showed a failed regard for the taxpayers of Kearny. The health and safety of the residents of Kearny were at risk when Santos voted to open the Keegan Landfill which caused toxic smells in the air for years with this poor decision. "OVERDEVELOPMENT" As Kearny begins to expand as a result of new development it will continue to put a strain on our services. Whether it be Public Works, Police,Fire, and our Public Schools. Tax Abatements have continued in putting more of a burden on Kearny's Property Tax Payers. These are some of the many important issues that the people in Kearny either haven't been paying attention to or the Mayor has effectively been able to fly under the radar for years. And as taxes rise, Kearny has the highest property taxes in Hudson County? Kearny with the exception of a few that had the courage to challenge this administration have chosen to sit on the sidelines and watched a self serving government run the table and do as they please for many years when good decent people who really care about Kearny and want to run for office but are aware of the consequences of what the Santos crowd may do to them. The next few years will show that property taxes will continue to increase in the off years when they are not running for office. Be prepared taxpayers!!! Be strong for Kearny more participation is needed. Get involved run for Mayor, Council, Board of Education as change is needed in restoring fairness in Kearny. Challenge the establishment that doesn't play by the rules when it comes to elections. "DON'T LET THE BULLIES DISCOURAGE YOU FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE" STRONG FOR KEARNY.
