Scutari Warriors

According to a Letter to the Editor of TAPintoClark:

We, the undersigned, are members of the Clark Democratic Committee. We are part of the legions of committee members throughout Union County who Union County Democratic Chairman Nick Scutari has thrown off the regular Democratic Organization line this year for our re-election.

The reason for this action is simple: we voted for someone else at the last election for Union County Chairman who we believed would be better for the party. For people unfamiliar with this process, all votes were signed – and Nick Scutari personally examined and took note of each one. We know that Chairman Scutari is concerned about maintaining his position, but there’s more. Clark, along with several other towns in Union County, may play a pivotal role in his re-election to State Senate next year, and it is up to the Committee Chairs to nominate him.

Chairman Scutari may be concerned with his level of support.

So instead of working to win the support of committee people who have worked hard for their party – in some cases for 30 years or more —he chose to use his position to replace them with new names. While a few hand-picked candidates may be genuinely interested in serving their community, most of these candidates come from the ranks of County employees, their families, and others whose fate County Chairman Scutari controls. These employees and/or family members who are candidates may feel that they have no choice but to run to protect their employment.

We also have this facebook post:

I am one of the 17 committee members in Cranford who were secretly taken off the line (ballot) by John Salerno, the municipal chair but more importantly, a county employee, because I and the 17 others didn’t vote for Nick Scutari last year. John Salerno knew who didn’t vote for Nick Scutari because they had open ballots…

All the towns in Union County that have had Committee members secretly removed from the line were the towns that didn’t overwhelmingly vote for Nick Scutari for county chair last year. Those towns include Fanwood, Clark, Cranford, Westfield and Linden.

…..

I didn’t even know about Scutari’s bullying and bribing and filling committee seats with his employees. I didn’t even know that the people that had to vote for Scutari had the threat of losing their livelihoods hanging over their heads.

Based on past blogs regarding the makeup of the candidates for Committee seats in next week’s democrat election, of the 837 candidates on the Real Democrats of Union County line there 293 who either have a government job or whose spouse has a government job. Of those 114 are for Union County. Here they are:

    its funny that dennis kobitz is still part of dem politcal boss scutaris minions, since kobitz was found to have a criminal past and had to quit as directior of the county election division (imagine that, we had a criminal handling our elections). But this is what you expect from the criminal syndicate known as union county govt.
