Someone should ask Laforet if he was ever a registered Democrat for 20 years and why did he switch to being and Independent and why. I see that his latest campaign adds lists himself and an Independent.

Why did the Tea Party list on their poster Steve Sbaara as a "candidate" and Jonathan Marcus not as a candidate but list his profession and where he works? Either it should have said " HAIRCUTTER" under Steve or candidate under Jonathan....Looks like another good old boy club, this is why the republicans are getting their butts kicked.

First to be accurate I am not a haircutter NJR. I am a business owner who happens to own a franchised hair care place. Secondly, I had no input as to where on the agenda I would be speaking nor did I have any input as to what the flyer looks like. And by the way NJR you couls have at least spelled my name correctly. If Mr. Marcus had a concern as to what was put under his name, he could have spoken to the people who put it together and made the change since it has been on their website for weeks. But if it means anything to anyone, I would volunteer to go last, first or in any order. Doesnt matter to me because the important thing is that all candidates who wanted to speak were invited and it is an opportunity to get your own message out. So Andy and NJR come out tonight and listen and come up to me and introduce yourself to me. It would be nice to put a face behind the comments.

Hay John Roth, AKA ref,....feeling the pinch? Your comments amaze me. Tell me the difference and why you would think anybody in this nonpartisan town would even care what he is? Going back to your comments shows me your in the wrong profession. I think maybe car salesman is more suiting. Speak with Todd, he may hire you after your voted out in November. You won't need much training.
