Councilmen Tom O'Donnell and Pat Capozzoli are the very models of fiscal restraint. Since joining the Caldwell Council they have worked tirelessly to hold the line on municipal spending, and twice they were responsible for zero-tax-increase budgets. In other years, the municipal portion of the tax levy's slight increases never came close to the state's permissable two percent cap.
So imagine my surprise when a mailer from Democrat challengers Steve Flack and Henderson Cole arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
What have we here?
Tom and Pat want to raise taxes?
News to me!
And probably news to them too.
Because it's an absolute falsehood.
Oh, and memo to you two supposed "businessmen" running as Democrats. The town council doesn't set rents. Not downtown, not anywhere. Landlords do that. So if you have a beef, take it up with the guys who own the properties. I understand quite a few of them are your fellow democrats.
But wait, there's more tomfoolery! The other side of their mailer lists five supposed goals of their candidacy. Number 3 rings a bell:
Uh oh. They're harping on the Community Center again. We know what that means. Fire Gordon Lawshe!
The Democrats finally figured out that coming right out and saying they want to fire Gordon isn't a winning strategy. So this time they're couching it in a nebulous paean to fiscal responsibility.
Don't be fooled. They've been looking for his head on a platter ever since he spearheaded the takedown of their party's council majority.
You remember when the Deocrats ran Caldwell, right? They ran it into the ground with shoddy record keeping, sloppy bill paying practices, whopping tax increases, and enough cronyism to make Hillary Clinton blush. We don't need to experience that again. Ever.
Re-elect Tom O'Donnell and Pat Capozzoli. Keep Caldwell moving in the right direction. You'll be glad you did.
