APP SCOOPED!!!

UPDATE
Great Op-ed piece today (January 3, '07) by Chairman Adam Puharic. And where is Barbara McMorrow on all this??? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?????


The staff at the Asbury Park Depress reads the Monmouth County Republican Blog, it's true. We have it on good authority that star reporter Bob "The Bald Avenger" Cullinane himself logs on frequently.
Over a week ago, this blog reported on the impending relocation of the Matawan Motor Vehicle Agency, Rebecca Aaronson, agent, to Hazlet's Airport Plaza Strip Mall, County Democratic Boss Victor Scudiery, owner. Aaronson is also Scudiery's vice chairman.
This past Wednesday, the APP finally reported on the subject. Five days after we ran the story. Today (Dec. 23, '06), they ran another article and an editorial critical of the move.
What were they waiting for?

Low readership days.

That, and Hidlay probaly thought that if they didn't report it, it would just go away.
It's not going away.

After Robin, Fred, and Gary told me that this posting is dated 12/23/06, I felt a need to interrupt my vacation and ask the question: Why no word or comment from Jimmy or Jackie reagrding this political deal? All of us at Sirus Satellite Radio would think that the Courier would want to do one of their outstanding journalistic reporting jobs on this issue. Let's face it, they may even get another reporting award.

What's next on Vic's agenda, to have a Rest Stop named after him.

Howard to dud, Howard to dud, just look at the fact that Michael Panter has requested an investigation. Maybe you should be asking for an investigation?

I believe Purcell has something coming out in this week's issue on this issue.

No doubt, Paul. Depending upon the administration in Trenton, the MV Agent is either a Republican or Democratic political appointee. The issue here is not so much that Aaaronson is the agent (A Democrat, after all, was the agent before her.), the issue is that not only to the victors go the spoils, it is that to Victor goes the spoils. Most agencies remain for years, even decades, at the same location, regardless of politics or administration. Look at Eatontown. Now suddenly we have it fed to us that Airport Plaza, "coincidentally" owned by the County Democratic Boss, is the only uniquely qualified location for the agency? That's the part that stinks.
I'm glad Adam is making sure that it's not going away.

Please go to Jimbo's Blog and read his response. This guy (Purcell) is even worse than Gary's horse teeth.
