Township Democrats' Record So Poor, They Can't Find Candidate Willing To
Run On Ticket!
By Camden County Republican
With David Mayer's $1.9 billion in tax increases
at the top of the ticket, Gloucester Township Dems struggle to find
candidate willing to run on ticket
GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP -- One week after the Gloucester Township Democrats

would want to run on a slate with candidates like David Mayer, Daniel
Hutchison, and Franklin Schmidt whose sole record is that of repeatedly
raising our taxes."
"Thanks to the Democrats' record of tax increases, their nomination for
Council this year is just about the only 'Help Wanted' sign that won't get
any response," Councilwoman Lovett added.
