Basking Ridge Baggage!

When one runs for office or applies for a promotion; negative campaigning and character attacks are all part of the game. It sometime is called bringing up old baggage.

I remember when each and every one of our Township Committee Members ran for office the stories about them were rampant. Who was an adulterer, a terrorist, unemployed Candidate with only a PO Box as an employer, or a parent whose child had many issues with the law, or a criminal environmentalist and so on? But, did I believe them? No, because negative campaigning about someone is all part of the game and all lacked substantive proof.

So, why did the Committee, with the announced selection of a new Police Chief, apparently give credence to anonymous unsupported hearsay about a candidate as the major factor in their selection of another? We need to find out all the fact first, before passing on supposed baggage issues.
