COMMUNITY: Municipal Candidates

We have one candidate who has obvious ties to the disgraced Joe Vas, who has just established domicile and has no real grasp the issues concerning Perth Amboy.

We have another candidate who moved into town just prior to the resident requirement.

We have another that is a city employee who feels he was wronged in a union dispute.

We have another who is a really nice guy, but really.

We have another whose claim to fame is . . . I really don’t know.

Then we have bona fide candidates.

We have Lisa Nanton. She does live in town. Her commitment to the City cannot be remotely equaled by any Council Candidate. Her dedication to the City has been proven to be an honest and just person committed to improving the quality of life in this city.

Now we have our Mayor, the Honorable Wilda Diaz. No one can doubt her desire. No one can doubt her commitment to the city. No one can doubt her agenda. She is driven by the desire to make Perth Amboy a decent place to live. Her zeal for fiscal responsibility has brought businesses both large and small to Perth Amboy. Her commitment to reduce this city’s debt has brought kudos from all levels of Government. We need her and her Council team in City Hall. We need to continue solid and responsible government. We need our citizens t be able to say. I’m from Perth Amboy, and proud of it.

On Election Day, Nov. 6 do the right thing and the City. Put Diaz, Nanton and Irizarry in City Hall.
