Accountability Needs to be Restored
on the Township Committee
Pay-to-Play definitions: contributions = appointments
Pay-to-Play invaded East Amwell for the first time in 2018, imposed by the four controlling Township Committeemen. Here’s how:
- The newly appointed Township Attorney and Township Bond Counsel each contributed $500 to the Mathews-Miller campaign in 2017.
- One of these two firms was the least qualified applicant for the appointed position.
- These appointments are for professional contracts that total about $50,000 in 2018.
- These appointments were neither discussed nor justified on record and to the public.
