Freeholder Candidate Tod Theise Claims Victory as Opponents Back Down on $30 Million Taj Mahal Library
Freeholders’ conveniently timed reconsideration of library boondoggle
validates candidate’s criticism and effectively endorses Theise’s run for Freeholder

Washington, NJ – Democratic Freeholder candidate Tod Theise of Washington Township declared a temporary victory today as the Warren County Freeholders back peddled on their proposed $30 million library/administrative building project.

Theise, who has made the lavish library the centerpiece of his Freeholder campaign, stated, “for the past several months I’ve warned my friends and neighbors about the Freeholders’ incredibly irresponsible scheme to stick taxpayers with an enormous tab for their Taj Mahal library. When I read Rick Gardner’s explanation as to why the Freeholders decided to reconsider the proposed project, my jaw dropped. His words were virtually identical to the argument I’ve been making to voters about why the library is wrong for Warren County.”

Theise, who readily admits his admiration for Gardner as a person continued, “as much as I like Rick, the last I heard from him he was boasting about the stack of letters he had received supporting the library project and enthusiastically backing this exercise in fiscal suicide. I’ve been hammering this issue home to voters. Regardless of party, everyone I’ve spoken with has been shocked not only by the fact that the Freeholders are promoting this boondoggle, but that they refused to even let taxpayers vote on it.”

The Freeholders’ refusal to let residents vote on the library is particularly troubling to Theise. “At a February 18, 2009 meeting, Assemblyman Mike Doherty asked the Freeholders to let taxpayers vote on this massive spending spree. The Freeholders responded by boasting about their tradition of ‘fiscal restraint’. One Freeholder actually bragged about what a ‘great job’ they do spending our money and said allowing taxpayers to speak by referendum didn’t really apply to them. Talk about arrogant!”
A longstanding fiscal conservative and former GOP official and regional candidate, Theise made it clear that his goal is to do what is best for Warren County rather than advance a partisan political agenda. “Mike is 100% right on this issue. I don’t care whether he’s a Republican or Democrat. Governing is about ideas, not labels. It’s about principle, not expedience. When I consider an idea, I don’t look to see if it has an (R) or a (D) next to it. I only care whether it puts the people of Warren County first.”

As for the timing of this apparent repentance, Theise explained, “I find the timing of this announcement rather convenient. It is beyond transparent that the Freeholders are trying to take the most important issue in this campaign off the table until the election is over. They felt the heat in the kitchen and chose to turn off the stove. If they think I’m going to back off even one inch, they are sadly mistaken. I will never back down as long as this misbegotten stimulus package threatens the prosperity of our families.”

Washington Boro Councilman John Valentine, who has been advising Theise during his campaign observed, “it’s amazing that Tod hasn’t even served a day on the Freeholder Board and already may have saved taxpayers millions of dollars. I can’t wait to see what he can do when he wins in November.”

Theise, who serves as a 1st Lieutenant in the New York Guard, said that he views his candidacy as another opportunity to honor his country. “This election presents a unique opportunity for Warren County taxpayers to voice their opinion on not only the library, but their outrage at being told by the Freeholders that they don’t have the right to decide how their money is spent. The right of self determination is at the heart of our American heritage. I am duty bound to do everything in my power to protect this right.”

Theise has created two web sites at which voters can find out more about his stands on various issues and his personal background. “The web sites are both informative and fun. I even worked my dog Mabel into the campaign. The sites are

 and

“And,” he joked, “just so voters know I’m serious about saving their money as a Freeholder, both sites are completely free and cost our campaign nothing. Now that’s practicing what I preach!”

Time for New Jersey democrats to wake up.
Check how Republicans are digging out Democrats in New Jersey

“The way you beat the Democrats in NJ

posted by Demsanddonts

“Is by systematically destroying them from the inside out. The FBI. The US Attorney. The AG’s office all looking in cooperation for corruption in government means bad news for Democrats because places like Hudson, Essex and Camden are prime locations for such nonsense. You can’t beat them at the polls, so you cripple them by exposing the corruption and taking away their political legs in the fall. The corruption appears so widespread that credible Democrats run for cover and suburban Democrats get beat at the polls simply by guilt through association. Other Democrats simply cross party lines at the top-of-the ticket and Christie benefits. This is how Democrats were contained like communists in the 1950’s. It’s a policy of political containment by the GOP. Vote Column “A” – All the way!”

Here is my advice :

How Can Democrats combat the GOP strategy in New Jersey?

   …. Expose Christie as an empty-headed bully and

 …. Keep feeding Christie cheesecake and waffles until he bursts
   
  Ask Christie exactly what spending he’ll cut to lower taxes
   
  Have Corzine spend a long weekend with Tony Robbins
   
  Insist that the DOJ investigates Christie’s sweatheart deals with Ashcroft & Kelley
   
  Offer hard evidence that Christie’s sweat glands are the primary cause of global warming
   
  Expose the GOP Plans and Lies

Well this is another Sunday that I feel compelled to to share my thought on what I read, witness, gather and listen to.

Way back in June I wrote in detail about the election battle for the  republican Candidates. Chris Christie battled with Steve Lonegan for Governor.

June 2  was a big day. Yes I had the results starting from the smallest office to Governors results. I was just lazy writing about it, since it was all over the news.

Instead, I decided to join campaign rallies in support for my blue President and Gov Jon Corzine although his rating is dropping. That does not mean I like Jon Corzine’s property taxes, but between Chris Christie and Gov Corzine, I would lather keep Corzine.

I will show you some of the pics I took. I can not think of New Jersey turning Red. That will be a night mare. Imagine Arizona in NJ.

Its less than 8 Months since President Obama took office, and yet it seems donkeys have already forgotten about the destruction of the past eight years under the republican leadership. It seems to me they have gone hibernating for now. Some of us who will be awake till 2012,  need to give those sleeping a pill to stay awake.

Yes Iam not a big fan of the Governor, but Chris Christie is not better. I would rather have Corzine than Chris Christie.

 I am calling Democrats who are sleeping in New Jersey, Please wake up!!!!, Do I need to be on my tiptoes again to give you warnings? Stay Awake.

Here is how Democrats are getting dug by the opponents:

Elephants aren’t playing in New Jersey, especially in district 23. As I wrote before, it is flooded with the holy holy  self righteous elephants.

 Which Elephant took the thrown?

happy-elephant-01

The answer is:

 Freeholder John Murphy Endorses Chris ChristieChris Christie in the back endorsed by the Freeholder John Murphy.

He Defeated Steve Lonegan for Governor , and yes Chris Christie came with a bang leading in polls. Oh Boy, just when Gov Corzine thought he was winning back his  popularity by inviting  Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama to Campaign with him, another  headache came in just this past week. 4 independent candidates jumps in for Governor race. The most popular ones are Gary Steele and Chris Daggett.

I met Gary Steele Yesterday Sat 1 at the Warren County Fair, and of course you know how naughty I can be. I took some good shots. 

Independent Candidate Gary Steele at Warren County Fair  flooded his flyers in 20 minutes . Every single person I saw at the fair was given a Vote for Gary Steele for governor hand fun.

 Gary Steele  took Chris Christie’ Cronies by suprise at the fair. It was something they did not expect, and they had no idea how he came to the Warren County Fair, from Morris Town.

I wished Governor Corzine or his campaign reps were present at our Democrat booth with his flyer’s. Unfortunately we had no show.

 The democrat sitting Governor has a big challenge. He should not ignore certain areas in New Jersey. Warren County may be dominated by elephants, but they are so many donkeys in this area that needs help. There are 13 candidates running as Democrats in warren county, except they are treated like step children with no support from the party. Does’nt  that show how courageous these few democrats are,in a community were republicans are the majority?

In my own opinion Democrats still stands a chance to claim back the sits? I am so proud of these courageous donkeys who are not afraid of challenging the elephants in this county. Really.

The truth is the know blue state of New Jersey faces a challenge by the holy holy self rightious elephantswove-ring from Warren County.

121474-Jamaican-Donkey-0 The Question is, Is New Jersey going to be a red State, independent or Stay blue?

 For now it is a 50/50 chance. Donkeys in New Jersey need to wake up.  Do not take things for granted.

No sleeping or hibernating. If donkeys keep going the way they are going, they will wake up in November with a red State of New Jersey, headed by the Fake holy elephant, now claiming to be independent.  

For those of you who do not know Chris Christie here is the video.

and here below  is the Democrat Sitting Governor Jon Corzine facing challenge

Governor Cozine.

After the election the Approval rating poll for Democrat Gov Jon Corzine declined dramatically where Chris Christie took the lead in New Jersey and still leading. That should be a wake up call for Governor Corzine/ Two things are happening here, either democrats in NJ are not happy with our Governor, or they are still drunk with the presidential elections.

See it for yourself.

My Question is  What are Democrats thinking in New Jersey?  Something Wrong here. Wake up Democrats. Two things, either the Obama Administration should give Jon Corzine a Diplomat job, and pave a way for somebody else to run, or the governor should campaign vigorously across the state without leaving out certain areas.

That is my friendly advice.
