Big Cajones....talk about thumbing your nose at the community. It'll be extremely interesting to see how the next election pans out. We'll all have a better idea of how the majority feels. Will probably bring out voters in droves....anyone reckon Mayor Daly will drop in to give her some election pointers?

No matter who else is on the ballot they would have my vote. It's time to unseat all incumbents.

Let me cast the first non-vote. New leadership is needed in the county. I signed my share of the petitions, and I am absolutely concerned for the future of Gloucester.

I wonder if she files suit when she loses. You know, she'll shout "defamation of character" for the actions she refuses to be held accountable for.

What a hoot!!! I really thought she had somewhat of a clue and would have the good sense to bow out.

Let me see if I can get this straight.
Our present supervisor sued her employer, then brought in a bunch of high priced lawyers that are going to cost the county some 80K, and about 40 voters some 2K each and now want to run for reelection.
There something here that i don't understand? Does she have that kind of support in the county?

The problem is that the entire county can't vote against her as she only represents one section of Gloucester. Do we really know how her constituents feel about her? I for one am upset that I can't vote against her.

York District is ready,willing and able to get rid of her. We are just waiting for November, to cast our votes for Carter Borden. November can't come soon enough.

Well, if there are constituents in her district who still support her...why are they not commenting here? I mean other than the usual knuckleheads that are obviously her family members and friend.

Maybe these constituents are...confined...and only allowed a few minutes of free time during the day so haven't had a chance to voice their support here yet!

Her arrogance is astounding! Thankfully we’ll be able to vote her out and bring her back to reality.
