    what else is new, the union county freeholders didn’t answer the public’s question as to how much revenue this increase in passport fees will generate. Surplus of $50 million last year, 10% of the county budget of HALF BILLION DOLLARS, this year’s forecast of $30 million dollars, and they still raised taxes this year $8 million dollars. In scrutinizing the 2016 county budget they buried additional millions of dollars of tax money.

    When is enough enough ripping off the seniors and hard working families? Financial failures one and all freeholders, proven to be no good stewards of clean, honest and properly functioning government. Are they clueless or just corrupt? The machine continues to stick them back in power sadly. Like some people say, Union county the most corrupt county in NJ, possibly the nation.

    One last item, at the FH wrap up, FH/SP town manager pig Mirabella, goes off on some tangent about an assault of Union County College, when no one even mentioned that topic…Is he too busy to even notice if was irrelevant? useless PIG.

    JB1-you have to post the amazing revelation from FH Hudak. After two residents, PM and BP, pointed this out in the public comments that night- FH Hudak admitted in his final wrap up at the end that the open space trust fund is that the county takes the money from the residents and then the county gives it back to the residents in grants. This is the first time, anyone on the FH board admitted that any money they have actually comes from the residents. I just about stood up and cried, “Halleluja!”

    How about giving pigs a break it is unfair to compare them to the Freeloaders -even though they have deplorable habits they taste good—-how about the dodo instead, even mother nature had no use for that bird (may be it should be the official state bird flying over trenton ?) I think union used that grant for cornstalks that are string tied to every pole in the SID section, thank you Freeloaders (we have one that lives in town )
