The woman at the center of it all, County Executive Kathe Donovan (R), sat down yesterday with NJToday Managing Editor Mike Schneider to discuss the latest developments in this intra-party war including the legal battle between her office and the Republican-controlled freeholder board. Moreover, when asked about it specifically, Donovan alleged that one of her aides was threatened by a Bergen GOP leader but declined to elaborate or name names.
Donovan also weighed in on the omnipresent issue of property taxes; she estimates that we could cut property taxes by roughly one-third by consolidating municipal services (she was very careful not to propose mass town consolidations, something most state citizens still oppose).
