“All Available Men” Have Not Shown Up

It’s been three hours since JCP&L’s Roberta Sheridan told Middletown Mayor Tony Fiore that “all available men” would be dispatched to the Monmouth County Bayshore for repairs to the Belford substation and the Stone Church substation.

There are no men at Belford.  There is not a JCP&L truck in sight.  There’s Comcast and Verizon trucks, but no JCP&L.  There are tanker trucks moving up and down Route 36 filled with sewage.  Apparently the trucks are not the only thing full of shit around here.

An angry and frustrated Fiore told MMM that the Governor’s office called him this morning to check on if he had heard from JCP&L. 

Maybe the circuts that have to be repaired are off sight.  Or maybe JCP&L is placating the Governor’s office while bullshitting  municipal elected officials.

    As l sit in front of my waterlogged, powerless Bayshore home, one question arises “Where the Hell is Gov You-tube”.
    And Fat Tony, why would you believe this buffoon??????

    Man up, Nancy.

    Why are you suburban welfare queens always crying for government action?

    You remind me of FEMA-dependent liberals crying after Katrina.

    Get a job and buy a generator. Stop depending on government.

    I’m sure you’ll now use this as an excuse to raid the taxpayers’ pocket for an infrastructure overhaul in your neighborhood.

    You’re right Ernesto, how dare l expect something for my $1.000 a month in tax money to keep giving the education mafia free healtcare and pensions.
    How dare those who pay the bills expect something for their money.
    Kinda like Tri-city news—you get nothing in return for your payment……………….
    And if we in Middletown didn’t give so much money to Asbury Obama Park–imagine what your tax rate would be……..
