WALSH: TIME FOR BENEFITS IN
MUNICIPALITIES TO BE CURTAILED
MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP (MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ): Middletown school board member Patricia A. Walsh is running for the 13th District Assembly as a Democrat this fall.
“In Middletown, Committeeman Patrick Short has proposed a significant reform for that governing body. Indeed, he is proposing reform for all part-time elected and appointed politicians in that township,” Walsh said.
The Democratic Assembly candidate said this is a worthy message for every municipality in the state, and something that will bring some tax relief to residents throughout the Garden State.
“It is time for the gravy train to come to stop and for the emphasis of good government to be serving the people and not politicians, their families and their political friends,” Walsh said.
“I intend to bring Committeeman Short’s message to Trenton and put it into a bill and get it introduced and get that bill adopted,” Walsh said.
Walsh said she intends on serving the district full time, 24 hours every day, 365 days per year. “My only intention is to bring tax relief to our residents, while bringing comprehensive funding to our schools and supporting our police and fire departments,” she concluded. “As for part-time municipal politicians, they can get a job like everyone else who has to work hard to get benefits.”
