The redistricting battle is at its end, and the budgets been passed. The dust of do’s has settled. Systematic probing has exposed bigger problems in Perth Amboy, with HIV’s steady uprising, drugs escalating ever more rapidly, unemployment not seeing the results one would expect and housing market relatively stagnant, we absolutely face issues that are not well to do, or fixed with snapped fingers. We are no longer pointing fingers in to the past shamefully, we are looking at what we have endured currently, and searching for the betterments we were promised indefinitely. Where are those budget appeasements, and the job creating projects that would benefit a great many of people? What is on the agenda for our schools, with the cuts of Christie brutalizing an already beaten system. Government jobs allowing a “double dip scenario”, making it okay to collect pensions from the city but continually work for said government. The withdrawal of the UEZ and all the good it was intended to do for us and began to for a short while. How is it that despite the many contracts being brought to the proverbial table Delaney is still an abandoned eye sore and the movie theatre has yet to see any revenue generation. Is this what revitalization is, or is this a mockery of the word, a mockery of the people and a mockery of the city we all love? This is by no means progression, nor is it the future we were duped into believing was inevitable. Now though we have a decision. A decision to do what is truly correct and wholesome, to regain our voices as a community, as a city, and as a people. We, the culturally dynamic individuals that make up an amazingly beautiful populous of a city that has too long been corrupted and over shadowed, will with my leadership, finally be heard. It is with us in mind that I run for Mayor, it is with us in mind that I ask for your mandate and vote when our decision is to be made. In a time when change is far past needed, and way too long overdue. I will put the people of perth amboy ahead of the politics, as I have and will continually, fight for the best interests of you… of us. I am your neighbor, advocate, friend and candidate mayor of our Perth Amboy City!

I will be that 1 person that leads Perth Amboy and progresses justice, truth and complete transparency, if elected in 2012, and will need the support of everyone to make that happen. I don't have political ties that bind or incriminate. I'm an advocate and volunteer for the city that believes there have been wrongs committed, and that those wrongs need correction immediately. My campaign will promote complete transparency and open door policies that are unprecedented. Vas was corrupt, Wilda surrounds herself by the corrupt, I am the alternative, putting the people of Perth Amboy ahead of the politics. Vote Pirro for mayor in 2012!

I hope so cause mayor wilda diaz loves to put the blame on past administration instead of taking the bull by the horns and getting the job done...
