PostSubject: CAN YOU SPELL "PROPAGANDA" - CH Sun - SEE Para. 5   Thu Sep 27, 2007 6:56 am

Election season heats up
Jennifer Kelley | The Sun Election season heats up

Election Day falls on Nov. 6 this year, and a spate of candidates and questions will be spread across the local and general ballots.

In Cherry Hill, Mayor Bernie Platt is seeking another four-year term. Platt is challenged by Republican Phil Guerrieri, an engineer working for the Pennsylvania-based firm Integrated Mechanical Service Inc.

Guerrieri, a longtime resident, has no formal background in politics but is active in the community via his role as president of the Erlton South Civic Association.

Guerrieri noted that, if elected, he would seek to re-establish discourse with the community, in order to utilize the wealth of talent and knowledge that our residents have to offer."

For Platt, also a longtime resident as well as a local business owner, running for another term is about taking pride in the community.

My administration has worked hard to deliver the distinct quality of life our residents deserve and has established a comprehensive blue print for Cherry Hill's future," he said. This roadmap includes smart fiscal management, robust economic development and steadfast public safety to ensure Cherry Hill remains one of the best places to live in the country."

In Township Council elections, Republicans Nancy Ryan, Joseph Achocoso and Christopher Hammerquist will challenge incumbent Democrat John Amato who serves as Council president Councilman Dennis Garbowski (D) and Sara Lipsett, a Democrat vying for the Council seat of Marlyn Kalitan, who will not be seeking re-election.

There will be four questions on the November ballot put forth by the state of New Jersey. One will ask voters to decide if the state should spend $200 million on the programs that preserve open-space initiatives through next year. The others ask voters whether the state should dedicate more sales-tax collections to property tax relief and if it should alter language some people find offensive from the state constitution barring any idiot or insane person" from voting. The other question on the ballot for now asks whether the state should borrow $450 million to fund stem-cell research for 10 years.

That question is being hotly contested by a right-to-life group, that planned to ask the attorney general on Monday to remove the question from the ballot in New Jersey's 21 counties, and seek to restrain county officials from printing their ballots and sample ballots until a decision is reached.

Hopefully, this will be handled in an expeditious manner so we can get on with our jobs," said Albert Mungioli, deputy clerk for Camden County.

Polls will be open on Nov. 6, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

PostSubject: vote against all incumbents and party hacks   Thu Sep 27, 2007 9:36 am

As I stated in another post, before I saw this article, vote against the incumbents if you want any attention or respect as a taxpayer.
