Here is the Latest from Senator Norcross. Try Not to Giggle!

October 6, 2010

Senator Donald Norcross

It is October.  The fall season is upon us.  Just looking around there are many signs that fall is here; college football dominates Saturday television, the leaves on the trees are starting to turn colors, and the temperature outside is cool but not cold.  In Camden County we know October is here when a Camden County Democrats on the campaign trail says something …  well …. silly.  

This year Senator Norcross did not disappoint.  In fact he has given us the most outrages and ridiculous statement we have seen in years. (Admitiatedly, that is a very high bar.)  He sent an e-mail to his “friends” in the district telling them … “It’s time to take our government back”!!!   

The full text of the e-mail is below but lets take just a few moments to examine key parts of this statement.  We should note that in the entire e-mail he did not mention Chris Christie once.  In New Jersey it is hard to imagine a statement about taking government back for the people without mentioning Chris Christie.  In his e-mail  Norcross did say,

You deserve a government that refuses to waste a single dollar of taxpayers’ money – by eliminating perks and special privileges, jobs for political friends, and exorbitant contracts to reward favored insiders

Really?  Just days ago when asked about Wayne Bryant’s corruption conviction the same Senator Norcross said, ““I don’t think it’s important.”  Rather then denounce corrupt public officials who violate the public trust and steal public money I guess Norcross has another plan to deal with political perks and special privileges, jobs for political friends, and exorbitant contracts to reward favored insiders.  I guess we are left to wonder who is going to lose their political job or their exorbitant public contract because Donald is “taking back government for the people”.

Here is another Norcross statement that makes us ….. wonder,

For too many years, Trenton has let us down. Government has spent too much of your money, and out-of-control property taxes have placed an unfair burden on everyone who lives and works in this state. 

We wonder who in Trenton has let us down?  We wonder if he was referring to any of the following politicians; Jon Corzine, Jim McGreevey, Joe Roberts, Wayne Bryant, Dana Redd, Lou Greenwald, Pam Lampitt, Jim Beach, John Adler, or even Fred Madden.  Unfortunately, the list is long but not very distinguished.  We wonder if Senator Norcross will identify exactly who has “let us down” in his next e-mail.  

 If Donald Norcross was serious when he said “It’s time to take our government back” he would vote for Harry Trout.

Dear Neighbor:

For too many years, Trenton has let us down. Government has spent too much of your money, and out-of-control property taxes have placed an unfair burden on everyone who lives and works in this state. Like you, we are fed up with the status quo and empty promises. We need reform, not business as usual.

It’s time to take our government back.

We are running to represent you in Trenton because we believe the people of this state deserve better. You deserve a government that refuses to waste a single dollar of taxpayers’ money – by eliminating perks and special privileges, jobs for political friends, and exorbitant contracts to reward favored insiders.

You are welcome to visit our website at http://www.njleg5.com.

It’s time to chase the special interests out of the Statehouse and give our undivided attention to the only interests that matter – yours. Our taxpayers must no longer be second in line –their needs and concerns drowned out by the special interests, their lobbyists, and the politicians who feed their egos and inflate their bank accounts.

There is no reason that government in New Jersey cannot be fiscally responsible while still delivering quality schools, health assistance and other essential services to the public. We must do all we can to help our seniors, veterans and the disabled maintain an acceptable standard of living. We must create the environment for new jobs and economic growth. And we must leave a better, more affordable state for our children and grandchildren.

We have lived here our entire lives and have been active in many community, business and charitable activities. We know firsthand the concerns and needs of the people in the South Jersey region, and we are determined to fight for reforms to ensure a better and more affordable life for you and your families.

    Reminds me of the story:

    An elderly man suffered a massive heart attack. The family drove wildly to get him to the emergency room.

    After what seemed like a very long wait, the ER doctor appeared wearing his scrubs and a long face.

    Sadly, he said, “I’m afraid Grandpa is brain-dead, but his heart is still beating.”

    “Oh, Dear God,” cried his wife, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock. “We’ve never had a Democrat in the family before!”

    Norcross is either a con artist or delusional. Given his union connections, I would opt for the former.

    If the taxpayers of Camden County are fed up with this kind government, they need to get up and out to vote in November.
