Read that Issam Mirza's brother has a criminal record and was fired from the Wayne Board of Education for theft. How much did that cost Wayne Tax payers? AND Issam Mirza's brother's wife works for the township, how much does she get paid? Talk about political patronage! Is this the person YOU want for council?

Hey "car-wash-guy" from bucolic Morris County ... get your rags together as there will be plenty of crying tonight. And I know you will not give up and "that is good." Your PUKE has solidified a beautiful community to fight the TORRENTS of LIES & SMEARS which Wayne does not deserve. All you have in your arsenal is the DEMONIZATION of 1 guy... most of us do not know: 1 guy. A VOLUNTEER in Wayne, not an OUTSIDER. 1 guy. Right or wrong it's only 1 guy with a 25 year old plea: 1 guy we don't even know. And you expect Wayne to just "roll-over" as your Democratic TOTALITARIAN philosophy takes over. Do YOU want to help those in need in Wayne: roll-up your sleeves and VOLUNTEER: Wayne can sure use your help. YES: volunteer to help, NOT Destroy. Most Wayne people have their life savings in this town and they will not allow a "carpetbagger" to ruin their quality of life.

WR: can we not apply that reasoning to the abysmal crucification of a "no name" Wayne volunteer because of an error 20+ years ago? Speak to the DEMS: they have no issues just negative statements. Truth or not, it can be applied to your Shakespear quote above.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 03:59 PM
Actually, I was applying it to your comment above! You talk about a TOTALITARIAN PHILOSOPHY? C'mon tomorrow. The REPUBLICAN MONOPOLY IN THIS TOWN and the POWER and CONTROL they exert is not TOTALITARIAN? Do you really believe a ONE PARTY RULE is HEALTHY? DO YOU BELIEVE MONOPOLIES ARE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE LITTLE GUY? That's what we have in this town, a REPUBLICAN MONOPOLY.
Rex miatke November 08, 2011 at 04:20 PM
A Republican monopoly?? Weren't they voted in?? After today I guess it will still be a monopoly when the vote is over. How about giving us some good democratic canidates like Chris Macintyre that we can vote for. I consider Chris to be one of the best on the council and if I was in his ward he would have my vote. This is not a monopoly it is the democratic partys issue.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:25 PM
wayne resident 2... Sam Mirza is not in a position to hire anybody. He is a candidate. He holds no power to hire anybody. That's done by the REPUBLICAN MONOPOLY you support. If Sam Mirza's sister-in-law works for the Township, she wasn't hired by Sam Mirza. The fact that she is still working for the Township at the very least indicates she is a good employee, worthy of her position.
tomorrow November 08, 2011 at 04:31 PM
WR: I believe we are seeking the same destination...just traveling different roads. The answer is simple but those in power at any level are not supportive: it is call TERM LIMITS. I believe we need limits at all levels of government and at one time in the past, I am told, the "term limit" concept was teamed with something called "initiative & referendum" but when the proponents of I&R were elected at the State level, they never brought the issue up to the voting NJ public as a change to our constitution. The I&R proponents became selfish. I&R would address your concerns and mine too.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:31 PM
No, they all weren't voted in! Was Bello or Jimenez voted in? Let me step out of the box here and make a prediction. There will be less Republican representation on the Council after today. They unfortunately will still have control, but they will have at the very least, one less member. As for Chris McIntyre, as far as I'm concerned, he's no Democrat. He is just another one of Rumana's boys. He's a REPUBLICAN in Democrats clothing!
Rex miatke November 08, 2011 at 04:36 PM
Yes. If I am correct didn't Nadine beat Billie Sue. Maybe my memory is off. I am getting old.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:38 PM
I agree with you. I am an avid supporter of term limits, especially for our Congressmen and Senators. If the President has term limits, why not the others? If a Governor has term limits, why not state officeholders? These people become parasitic leeches and the longer they're in, the less productive they become. I am also a supporter of term limits on a local level. These terms are 4 years. That's a long time! Two terms should be more than enough. However, I don't think we'll ever see that come to fruition.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:39 PM
No. Lonnie Miller-Ryan beat Bennan last year.
Rex miatke November 08, 2011 at 04:42 PM
What about the year before that. If you don't remember I bet someone might remember. You are saying Nadine never had to be voted in??? I thought I remembered her in a debate with Billie Sue at town hall.
wayne resident 2 November 08, 2011 at 04:44 PM
How quickly we forget. Nadine Bello ran against Bill Brennan two years ago in the 6th ward and won 3-1. Her perfume must be wearing off.
Rex miatke November 08, 2011 at 04:49 PM
See Wayne resident someone does remember. Will you now agree that Nadine ran against Billie Sue 2 years ago and was voted in. He tried again against Lonni the next year and LOST again. This will be Billie Sue's 3rd defeat.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:52 PM
Simple...at least the guy is trying. You can knock Bill Brennan for certain things, but don't knock the guy for trying?
tomorrow November 08, 2011 at 04:52 PM
Sorry WR: I heard this statement throughout the campaign by the DEMS and chauked it up as "political." The NJ-State Constitution addresses vacancies, except for congress, the PARTY of the peson who leaves office shall appoint the successor. So Dems appoint a Dem and Repubs appoint Repubs but only until the next election. The Councilwoman in the 6th Ward WAS ELECTED by the voters in the 6th Ward 2 years ago to fill an unexpired term: just as the NJ Constitution dictates. That issue came out when Brennan sued the Township claiming the mayor was not "properly" appointed. The Judge ruled that the fact that the mayor was subsequently ELECTED by the citizens of Wayne, Mr. Vergano was properly and rightly the mayor of Wayne. What gets me is that Brennan who has a brilliant legal mind knew that so why did he have to sue? That one had to cost Wayne residents a few bucks.
Al Scala November 08, 2011 at 04:56 PM
tomorrow, I stand corrected. My error!
tomorrow November 08, 2011 at 05:04 PM
WR: your credibility & sincerety have been elevated to the highest degree by your statement.
leanbean November 08, 2011 at 05:27 PM
It's funny that everyone postings get deleted except for tomorrow,wayne resident,simple and wayne resident 2. That leads me to beleave that there doing the deleting.
