O’Scanlon: Aberdeen Officials Need to Atone for False, Political Mailing Sent on Taxpayer Dime, Threats to County Officials
Councilman Greg Cannon threatened County Officials
Taxpayers paid for political mail
Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) today sharply criticized Aberdeen Township’s taxpayer-funded distribution of flagrantly misleading information regarding the municipal record on taxes.
In July, Aberdeen’s governing body sent out a mailing to residents blatantly, and falsely, claiming that there was no increase in municipal taxes. The mailing blamed tax increases on schools, Monmouth County, and assessment methodologies.
“I’ve worked well and in good faith with Aberdeen during all my years in the legislature. Our good relationship makes my having to make this statement all the more difficult. But the Aberdeen administration failed its constituents on so many levels revolving around this demonstrably misleading, blatantly political, taxpayer-funded communication that I simply cannot let it stand,” said O’ScanlonArt Gallagher | Filed under: Aberdeen, Declan O'Scanlon, Monmouth County News | Tags: Aberdeen, Greg Cannon, Gregory Cannon, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Tax Board, Press Release, Senator Declan O'Scanlon | 5 Comments »
