Residents of Sayreville should support the local Democratic ticket of Tom Pollando and Dennis Grobelny.
Issues facing Sayreville: 1) Lower tax base: While on the Borough council Tom Pollando proposed the elimination of health benefits for the mayor and council in order to save money including his own, (Suburban 10/4/07). Tom and Dennis are pursuing other ideas to lower taxes through shared services, freeze spending and an in-house attorney to name a few.
2) The Main Street Bypass: the bypass will be located between the Raritan River and Main Street. While on the council in 2006 Tom and Dennis sought the help of Assemblyman John Wisniewski in securing $10 million from the state to fund this project and to make it a reality. The bypass has been in the master plan for over 20 years with no progress. Sayreville citizens that drive on Main Street day and night know all too well how horrendous the traffic can be. Tom and Dennis will fight to have the road completed.
3) Rising crime rate: The Democrats announced a plan to help reduce crime, a proven plan that has worked in other communities. What does the Republican mayor say to increased crime? To paraphrase the mayor, “I have a lot of complaints but no solutions”. Democrats have solutions. While Dennis was on the council he saw to it that every police car had a laptop computer, so the police are never more than inches away from the resources they need to protect you.
And if it wasn’t for Dennis and the Democrats taking a politically unpopular stand on a bond issue last year, which cost the borough nothing and all the Republicans were against (3/27/08), the NL Industries redevelopment site would be in the hands of the county and not in the hands of Sayreville residents. This is the kind of leadership Sayreville needs.
On November 3rd Noreen and I are going to vote column “A”. Sayreville needs the leadership of Tom Pollando and Dennis Grobelny and not the puppets of Mayor O’Brien. Both Tom and Dennis have long distinguished records serving our community and volunteering their time. Their ideas and vision will put Sayreville back on the right track.
Bill and Noreen Henry
