For once I agree with something Kent Pipes said. The “High Street Mafia” as he refers to them are the same political bosses and insiders that I frequently call the High Street Elite.
As printed in BCT on 5/2/11:
Mt. Holly politicians should heed will of the people
It would appear that two elections in a row now Mount Holly voters have raised their voices saying the inept leadership of the Township Council, school boards and Municipal Utilities Authority needs to be replaced.
Misstep after failed misstep, Mount Holly needs to clean house – in the administration (yes, a new manager), new mayor and council members (both Republican and Democrat), school board in the township schools and Rancocas Valley Regional High School and Mount Holly Municipal Utilities Authority.
When the voters really begin to understand the lying, deceitful, self-serving leadership of the township and how much it is going to cost them for failed planning and administration of the so-called redevelopment of the Mount Holly Gardens housing project, they should rise up in anger.
The High Street mafia needs to be silenced and the people of the town need to take back the community they love.
Paid professionals who buy their positions with large campaign contributions need to be ousted, and hardworking, honest, fair, progressive thinkers need to be appointed. Municipal Utilities Authority Director Bill Dunn should be sent home to enjoy his last years on a public pension. The self-interest of the wealthy needs to give way to the good of the common people. One person, one vote – that’s democracy.
The people are speaking. Are the power-hungry, greedy, self-interested aristocrats listening?
