Sounds like the liberals are looking for more handouts from the taxpayers.The democrats love to tax the working class and give it to the "entitlemt" class.They should ask the questions like how did places like Willingboro,Beverly,Camden ect. became the way they are.Ask what the towns and city can do for themself,throwing more money at the problems doesn't and hasn't worked.When will these tax and spend liberals ever learn? Guess they will do anything,inculding bringing this country to it's knees just to "buy" the votes.Time to say NO,you got yourselfs into trouble,get yourselfs out of trouble just like the rest of us has to do.Just my point of view.

And just how is Willingboro an older suburb? Most of the housing stock in W'boro was built after the middle 1950's. When I think of older suburbs Collingswood,Palmyra,Pennsauke n come to mind.
Willingboro's problems have little if anything to do with the age of the houses. It is a question of what happened to Willingboro over the years.And how to attract good people to move in.Building affordable housing on vacant land is not the answer. Fixing up existing houses is. Then straighten out that school system. Maybe just maybe good people with kids will think about moving back in.
However,the present Willingboro administration seems hell bent on keeping the town in a state of chaos. By naming certain "outside forces" as the cause of all to many problems.
