Is the ultimate plan of the Camden trio to abolish our Mayoral system of Government so one or the other can be a City Manager while other sits as Council President? There is nothing stopping them now from also ditching John Pick, Lore Chambers and every other department head simply by putting them under the Council control like they just did with the City Attorney. No check or balance just paybacks unchecked. I also find it very amusing that Terry is now distributing her own flyers telling people what was done was right and to not sign any referendum.

The 2nd murder trial against Skylor Harmon is underway and the main question on the taxpayers minds is will Beau be able to convince a jury this time that Skylor is guilty? In case you have forgotten Skylor is accused of being the trigger man in the death of Reginald Handy Jr in May of Last year. The real problem is evidence evidently with nobody able or willing to say definitively they saw Skylor with the .223 rifle used in the murder
The first trial ended in a mistrial and the second is expected to go to the jury today

Over the numerous articles that I have written about saving Downtown the majority of the comments have been screw it it is waste of time. Do you think we should just accept Downtown as what it is ? or do you think anything could bring it back to life?

The Somerset County Commissioners are Facing Some serious Heat over there choice of Doug Taylor as the new County Administrator. Randy Laird and Craig Mathies were the only two that have listened to voters wanting a change from the good ol boy network. People are just fed up with the politics as usual game and this move after more qualified people had applied is only going to further fan the flames of discontent by those very same voters.
Did the other three think that nobody would care when they made their choice?
