Scarey is opening up the Woodbridge Patch and seeing a large picture of Mac staring back at me. Goodness he is so ugly inside and out.

A Mc Cormac Continental breakfast: A McCormac "continental breakfast" (like his taxpayer paid giveaways) makes you think you're getting a huge breakfast of some sort. Yet, most often it seems that with him, you get served small servings of cereal, pastries, milk, coffee, juice, egg and a whole of BLARNEY!.

@ Tom he's probably going to charge $100 to shake his hand off course he'll be there for his freebies and to tell more stories about what he's done for us lately wonder what he's bought this week with our tax dollars any other abandon land available? Make sure its overpriced

the latest giveaway to his friends is the proposed 30 year tax abatement to Middlesex Management to build approx 600 apts on General Dynamics land on Avenel St. They will be pouring kids into the school system and get off totally school tax free for 30 years. Wdbg taxpayers will have to build a new school for them.

Sorry, Christopher, that was my mistake. The article is corrected to reflect the appropriate date.

Deb, you get so much right, this just goes to show you are human and can acknowledge it.
stephen mckessy February 16, 2013 at 04:30 PM

Maybe the mayor is going to roll out his fire dept and first aid squad consolidation plan he stole from last year's republican candidates?
gam February 16, 2013 at 11:44 PM
not sure about that but he hasALWAYS planned to have a township wide paid fire dept so it would make sense to consolidate them, the equipment and crews
gam February 16, 2013 at 11:44 PM
nuvo-is this information available anywhere??
Evans Robinson February 17, 2013 at 01:21 AM
Really - that is why he fought so hard against it during his re-election run and discredited the republican candidates??? I am sure we could dig up the newspaper articles publishing his quotes.
gam February 17, 2013 at 03:36 AM
evans..the mayor barely ran any campaign, so to say he fought hard against anything is crazy..he practically ran unopposed! That being said he has always wanted to get a township wide paid fire, i don't care what articles you, find speak to fire officials/members that have been around. How do you think the paid Wdbg township first aid [the building by big shots] started?
Evans Robinson February 17, 2013 at 05:04 AM
You gotta be kidding gam, are you running point for the mayor on this? November 2011 published in Home News Tribune: McCormac stated: “Struben’s plan doesn’t add up because he’s looking to hire people to save money.” McCormac said “Struben is attacking a department that doesn’t need fixing.” and “There’s no problem with the delivery of fire service in Woodbridge Township,” McCormac said Struben’s plan will cost money. “You can’t add people to the budget and expect to save money,” said McCormac, a former state treasurer. McCormac said “Woodbridge has a great fire delivery program, consisting of paid firefighters and volunteers.” “People are satisfied,” McCormac said. “Fathers, sons and generations grow up as firefighters in Woodbridge.” Additionally, McCormac said, “the fire districts are legally separate from township government. The mayor’s office has no authority to hire firefighters.” He said “a referendum would be needed to make any changes to that arrangement.” “Chris Struben as Mayor could not accomplish what Chris Struben the Candidate is saying without spending a lot of taxpayer money through a referendum,” McCormac said. “He (Struben) wants to run the School Board and firehouses, and that’s not the type of system we need.”
Evans Robinson February 17, 2013 at 05:10 AM
And please, the woodbridge township first aid and rescue unit building on Queen Street behind 'big shots' was conceived before McCormac was even state treasurer for mcgreevey. Look what happened when mccormac tried to consodlidate the ambulance squads only to find out his boy hired criminals as emt's while his holier than now emminance was trying to get rid of the avenel ambulance hoods. Wanna continue gam?
