Press conference by Democrats

The Middletown Democratic candidates for Township Committee, Patricia Walsh and Jim Grenafege, have unearthed a serious concern for every township resident.

"This township administration has concealed the fact that there are serious environmental concerns where it regards underground oil tanks," Grenafege said.

"This environmental issue not only involves the Town Hall but also the Middletown Cultural Arts Center," Walsh said. "This environmental issue could cost the taxpayers of Middletown literally millions of dollars. And, taxpayers are looking at this problem only because the Republican Administration in this town has ignored this problem and built their projects on poor planning."

According to Grenafege, the press conference, which takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 6 outside the Police Entrance of Town Hall, will include outstanding issues where it regards billing irregularities with Township Attorney Bernard Reilly. "But, the recent revelations about the environmental situation and contamination at Town Hall and the Arts Center are so serious they have to be exposed for the public's perusal immediately."
