As one watching the Roselle Democratic Primary with much interest, notably the 4th Ward race, I find a contradiction. Candidates Moore and Dow eschew catering to special interests (NJToday, 4/30/10). Yet, they cite a preference for youth and seniors.
Aren’t these special interests seeking special benefits at the expense of the “unspecial” mass of residents?
The history of Democratic Party rule for the last 15 years in Roselle, whether by Regular or Independent/Reform Dems, has been a setting of various groups at each other and continuously. We are not that large of a community than we can tolerate these obvious ‘divide and conquer’ plays.
Since 2003, there have been no General Election options in Roselle. Slightly less than half the population has been disenfranchised.
This November there is a Republican candidate for the 4th Ward for “One Roselle for the 21st Century”. I will have “A Balance of Narratives” for a political system deadlocked in intra-party bickering, and am ready to serve.
