Brower Endorses Sullivan for Committee

Draws on time the two have spent on township's Planning Board.

To the editor:

I strongly recommend Kevin Sullivan to serve as Committeeman. He is very qualified to serve our residents. He has been a township resident for over 20 years. His daughter attends . He has coached at and the Township Recreation program and he and his wife are active in .

I have worked with Kevin on the Planning Board and he has always been fair, recognizing  each resident's property rights, but can be tough on developers. He is willing to commit the time required to serve on the Township Committee, and also spend the time needed to work on the many town committees. His business and financial background is important, especially if the Township can maintain the fiscal responsibility to try to as we have done for the last two years.

I know Kevin will add positive thinking to the Committee and has a fine working understanding of the needs and business of the township. I would be honored to serve with him.

Bailey Brower, Jr.
Township Republican Committeeman

This is the biggest bunch of bull. No offense to Kevin, but he is only an alternate to the planning board. As such, he never opens his mouth. Thus, Bailey must be hearing things at those meetings, assuming he can still hear.Does any one really care who Bailey Brower endorses, any way? If I were Kevin, I'd ask the incoherent Bailey to take it back.

Sullivan is not an alternate on the planning board. If you read that in the Chatham Courier (WHICH ENDORSED SULLIVAN) it was an error. And who would not care to get an endorsement from Bailey? He obviously has a hugh following. Didnt he win his last election?

And what do you make of in addtion to the Courier endorsement the endorsement s from Kevin Tubbs or Nicole Hagner or the numerous township citizens who took the time to write letters?

I definitely do not want to be endorsed by Bailey Brower. I know he credited me for getting him elected last time around and I know he likes to repay favors with the Taxpayor's funds. However, his ultra-right wing nut job political stances are enough to scare away any sane rationale voter in this town. Thanks, but no thanks. Richard Templin

Happyland? Why do you hide behind an alias?

Dan Miller?

This is embarassing.  I feel compelled to point out that according to the phone book, there is nobody named "Danny Fernandez" who lives in the Township.  There is a Danny Fernandez who works as a paralegal at John Nonnenmacher's law firm (his contact info was presumably accidently left on an email John sent out townwide), but I don't know if that gentleman has ever stepped foot in Chatham Township.  While John would like to hop on the high horse and ask why people post under pen names, he should probably look in the mirror and a) let us know if he did or did not have a hand in the composition and posting the "Danny Fernandez" message himself and, if he did, b) retract the factually incorrect statements in "Danny's" post. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

You and your wife represent a different political party than mine, but God bless you and your wife for standing up to these thugs. I hope I can face off with someone with this level of integrity in November. You are a blessing to Chatham.
John Nonnenmacher May 31, 2012 at 07:49 AM
Danny Fernandez dates a woman in Chatham and has his own opinions based on his own experiences. Do you want to meet him, Dan? Let's not cast aspersions. I'll put my Chatham reputation up against yours, any day or any time.

It feels like a game of "I know you are, but what what am I?" This kind of childish nonsense is why almost nobody votes in these pathetic local elections. Add to that the fact that despite all the bromides and silly promises on all the signs that destroy the beauty of the town for the duration of the election, virtually nothing every changes in Chatham. And the reality is, most of the people who live here (yes...I've lived here for many years) don't care. They are largely well-off, comfortable and complacent. It's downright laughable that those currently running for office would take to a local blog to hurl insults and accusations at each other while doing nothing to further or improve the political discourse. Is there no one left to take the high road? Nor do we ever see a free exchange of actual IDEAS or constructive criticism. Rather it comes down to a sophomoric exchange of hollow promises of what a particular candidate will do, without any explanation of HOW they will do it. Now we're on to the extremely vital issue of who is stealing signs and who is a card-carrying member of the Bailey Brower fan club. If this is the best we can do, maybe it's a good thing only about a tenth of eligible voters show up to excercise their right to participate in what looks more and more like a tiny, little, local oligarchy.

Richard, If you or any other candidate expects to earn the support of myself or any voter, please, PLEASE tell us not just that you WANT to bring about change, but far more importantly HOW you will achieve it. Specifics, not bumper stickers, please.

Finally you expose some of your political platform. Maybe soon you will reveal your real motives, wink, wink... This is not what chatham wants! Have you read your posts and watched yourself at the town meetings? You know they are televised, right? Drew Carey you are not. He is a nice man with integrity. Posting mean signs and making racial comments is twisted and MEAN! Doesn't fly in Chatham! And your credentials are a lie...I checked!
Dave 2 June 26, 2012 at 04:43 PM
Let discuss other racial case law from the 1960's. Because the 1960's and 2012 are so very similar....Again, another weak point Templin. Or we could discuss why you think our neighborhoods would be unsafe from the Market Garden Ordinance, in terms of people not environment.
