Two Quotes and Rebuttals
Quote from comment on Maria's blog: "When Dan Damon put out false information about libraries, funding and the association with the Mayor, you did not see Bernice put out any "wacko" statements on that. "
Response from me: Well, for one thing, Dan is not my elected representative in Trenton, voting on all sorts of matters that may directly affect my pocketbook and daily experiences. Dan can fulminate all he wants, but his statements are ultimately irrelevant unless people endorse them.
Quote from Jerry Green's Page: "I had an opportunity yesterday to participate in a tour of the new Senior Citizen Facility on East Front Street. It is a building that the citizens of Plainfield can take pride. Similar condo units would probably go for $100,000 or more in other parts of the State. It was also rewarding to hear that we are getting a lot of people from New York who has shown interest in purchasing these units."
Response from me: My sixth grade teacher would freak if she had to grade this statement for proper use of English. Luckily she is in a better world. The comment on pricing is especially faulty. Think about it.
Voters today want smart, well-spoken, thoughtful representatives. It is a necessity in this world, even at the state and local level. Whether we will get such choices is problematic, but we can still hope.
