New Bond Counsel?

Tonight’s freeholder meeting has on the agenda a resolution introducing a new pay-to-player in the Roselle Mind & Body Complex saga:

2017-813: Resolution appointing Parker McCay to serve as Bond Counsel and provide bond counsel services in connection with the Borough of Roselle Community and Library Project and Roselle Board of Education Early Childhood Learning Center Project.

By way of background, at the beginning of the year we had this resolution:

2017-11: Awarding a contract to Rogut McCarthy, LLC, Cranford, New Jersey to provide specialized counsel services in connection with the issuance of bonds, or notes by the County of Union from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

For some perspective, Rogut McCarthy, LLC has been paid $1,004,600 from 2004 through 2016 by Union County and has donated $249,305 to all politicians of which $148,48o went to Union County politicians. Parker McCay is a bigger fish having donated $2,752,859 to a lot more politicians with only $10,400 to those in Union County.

Does this mean that Rogut McCarthy, LLC is out or is Parker McCray only coming in for this Roselle project? That will be my question tonight.
