In the 'DemBadLands' of Mayor Tom 'Now 11.1%' ChoiLankey, even the ridiculous is shoved down upon us. Attaching 100% Raises for the 'Fresh Start Tour Entourage, aka the Edison Township Council to the resolution raising the salary caps for administration personnel is tad bit much even for this all-Dem party governance, which has long made Edison Safe for Hypocrisy.
The only people who should believe this Council deserves a raise, much less 100%, for what they did to the residents and taxpayers over the last two years are those who've never looked at their tax bills or who've been out of town for those last two years.
And, if they believe they are do a raise for what they did, then Mayor ChoiLankey should pay it out of his own pocket - since they did a better job for him than they did for us.
So, in a town where checks and balances are a misnomer and there is absolutely no credible or rational reason for the Council to be doing this and right after an election to boot, there must be some other reasons why they're doing it.
Since the ridiculous is up for a vote tomorrow night, here's my take on the reasons, which are just as credible and rational as what they will try and tell you:
Anyhoo, this is Edison. You Get What You Ask For - and Then Some!
