how desperate are joe and ralph to orchestrate this story.

first of all, ralph turned down a "used boro car" an d demanded a NEW one in 2008.

second, he does NOT take the seniors ANYWHERE in his car EVER.,,that is a boldface lie.

third, his pay was much higher than the last administrator and therefore a new car was unnecessary to say the least.

fourth, the towns who are in the same category are very large towns with much more REVENUE to spare than little Netcong.

fifth, joe gave the job to ralph because he is friends with ralph's father. ralph is lazy and underhanded and is way overpaid. he is always looking for ways to reward himself. look at what he and the mayor did to dee collabella.

sixth, they both have some nerve putting this in the paper. they did it to justify their disgraceful behavior.

last.....the town has got to get rid of both of these men....they are liars and are keeping this town down.

WE NEED NEW PEOPLE IN OFFICE AND A NEW ADMINI9STRATOR.

This article goes to prove that these two are running this town into the ground. They are the culprits...not the council.

I really don't know what I can add to this discussion. The article really says it all. Fat Slob Ralph gets a free car because Mayor Nametko and his father are friends. Mayor Nametko says in the article that the town is so lucky to have such a wonderful administrator and if we didn't give him a free car we would have to give him more money. I guess it is better to give him a free car than to have to pay his grocery bills.

This whole car ordeal pretty much speaks for itself and shows just how incompetent Joe Nametko is as a Mayor. It is time that the rest of the town council stands up to that fat waste of space Ralph and takes control away from Nametko. Not that I think he will win, but I am voting for Hathaway for council. At least it will be some new blood and maybe he will change some of the garbage that is going on.

Let's face it. The town council is a joke. Nametko can't give the town to Fat Slob Ralph fast enough. Cissy Laureys doesn't know what year it is and just goes along with anything. Fat Jack, Alcoholic Elmer, and Wussy Koster just give everything to the Fire Depts. Dellamo could care less as long he benefits. And Toni Anne Maccollough is too busy planning concerts in the park instead of getting herself a nose job. Time for some real change. This town is going down the toilet fast and it is the Mayor and Council's fault.

Furthermore, it is truly sickening that a long time employee making next to nothing gets laid off and the town has money to give a free car to that fat pig.

Since it is part of Ralph's compensation, he should be paying income tax on the car, rather, tax on the worth of it.

To make sense of this, I did some homework and I tried to put some facts in order:

Netcong’s first administrator was also a certified CFO and did both jobs to save money. If I remember the mayor said that was the only way we could afford him. He drove an out of service police car. After a few years he left for a better job in a larger town.

Next the Mayor Nick Pompeilo hired Marvin Joss. He was the tax assessor in some very large towns. Again to save money he doubled as the Netcong tax assessor. He was given an old police car. He left for a better job.

Mayor Pompilio moves in 2007. Mayor Nametko is elected in a landslide.

The town hires a Mr. Sheridan. He is fired after 6 months and sues because he is Irish in an Italian town, no kidding. The town latter settles for a few dollars.

At the same time, Mr. Blakeslee is terminated by Mendham Borough.(I don't know why). He is replaced by the Denville administrator. According to today’s article, she gives Mr. Blakeslee’s car to the police to save the poor suffering taxpayers in Mendham (!) some money.

Mr. Blakeslee is hired by Netcong in Oct. 2007 as administrator only.(He isn’t the Clerk. Hopefully Delores D still is.) Although out of a job, the town meets his demand for a car and then buys him a new one.

Please let me know if any of this is incorrect. I think it is very accurate and doesn't paint a flattering picture of the mayor and council. Remember on Tuesday, we get the government we deserve.

i still say that it is ralph and joe scheming behind the backs of the council and the taxpayers to further their agenda.

it is time for the council to take back control of the town since the mayor is a loser and the administrator is a two-faced, back-stabbing low life.

these two (ralph and joe) were behind kicking dee colabella to the curb.

The first job for Toni Anne is to teach her children respect. Just because she is on the council, does not give them the right to bully or walk IN the street where DRIVERS have to go around them. Last time I checked, there are sidewalks. The bullying her precious son dishes out is intolerable. Yes, he is sweet when parents are around, but the minute they are out of site, his foul mouth and belittling is sickening. Save the money for a nose job and hire a therapist for him.

If you have something to say about or would like to talk to me about my 12-year-old son, I would appreciate it if you see me in person, or call me. You can get my contact information from Borough Hall. As with all complaints, I will be happy to listen.
Thank you.

ToniAnn, I couldn't agree with you more. This blog is not a place to discuss anyone's children. If someone doesn't have the guts to come to you and speak to you about your kids, don't give them the time of day. By the way, I think you did a great job with your kids. I have been in their company when you were around and when you were not and I think they are nice, well behaved, normal kids. Don't listen to this nonsense. It serves no purpose.

While I am certainly not a fan of ToniAnne Mccullough as a council member, I would have to agree that no one should be writing anything about her children on this forum.

I know Toni Anne's kids and they are the nicest children. This site is not about children. Take it up with her in private. This just shows that your spineless.
