Obviously, the Gloucester Mafia will do whatever it takes to continue to take advantage of their constituents, and will not take NO for an answer! Their arrogance toward those of us who elected them is unbelievable. The very notion that we should pay their legal bills is beyond ludicrous, and no judge with any integrity would rule that they should be allowed to vote on that decision and appoint a tiebreaker to make sure it goes their way. Do they really believe that the AG is as unethical as they are?

This sentence from the article says it all:
The idea was scuttled, however, because of public outcry and a recent change in the law that requires the tiebreaker be elected by the public, not appointed by the board.

Foul Four....when will you get it?? PUBLIC OUTCRY....change in the LAW. Yes, the LAW applies to you, also. Imagine that. When will these four stop making a laughing stock of our county?

November will be here soon and one will be gone...our county can then begin to heal.

Sounds like the proverbial 'catch 22' for the four!

Foul four said "Check", petitioners say "Checkmate!"

"A majority of that bill,$80,000.00, is to be paid by 40 citizens who circulated removal petitions, while the rest of the county is supposed to pay the rest"

In your dreams, TA,MR,GW&BC.

Is anyone brave enough to give TA CPR as she is stamping her foot and holding her breath until the "mean old lawyers" agree with her.... Really, how much longer can this soap opera go on? When you ask for a legal opinion and don't get the answer you want, how many more people do you need to tell you.. YOU ARE WRONG, MAFIA!!!!

The picture in my minds eye of TA holding her breath and stomping her foot, okay, but giving her CPR? No way.
OOPS! her head just flew off!

Perhaps one of them will be awarded a stifen....or a settlement from a lawsuit...which will enable them to help each other with these ridiculous legal bills!! ROFLMAO!!

County Attorney Ted Wilmot said he has spoken with th supervisors, "But I can't comment on any private advice I have given them."

So, why would the county attorney be giving private advice? That would be a conflict of interest. He is to look out of the county, not give "private advice". I wonder if he was on the payroll clock while giving the private advice?

Unfortunately, the county attorney works for the Board of Supervisors. Yes, he is suppose to work for the county and should act in best interest of the county, but the fact remains he does work for the board. And we all know how those four board members feel about a staff member who aren't loyal to them.

And they will use the excuse that information about legal issues, do not fall within the domain of Freedom of Information Act. So we'll never know what they discussed.

You are absolutely correct! Here we go again with those secret meetings...perhaps Ted has been awarded a stifen of his own. I believe we should look into that!

Hopefully he has learned that lying is currently considered a sin. Something I doubt that you may never learn.

If Matt had lied about anything, wouldn't your friend's (the BOS 4) attorneys have sued both Matt and the Daily Press? I mean, they haven't given a second thought about seeking money from any other source. Or maybe they know the Daily Press has a lot deeper pockets than the county and it would be a waste of time and money.

I am so disgusted with Gloucester County. This post is random and not about the current topic, but I wanted to add it anyway.
The cops of Gloucester County are not doing their jobs, they won't even arrest an adult for beating up a 14yr old child. Told the parent to go to the magistrate They are much too busy sitting at the park and ride and in other parking lots chatting!!!
