VIDEO: Spadea, Rooney rip Dover government’s 50-to-60% pay raises

It was a Democrat president who said “ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country,” Save Jerseyans.

Of course, that was a very long time ago.

Today’s Democrat Party is exemplified by the leadership of Dover, New Jersey, a community of less than 20,000 souls where the all-Democrat part-time leadership just moved to grant themselves full-time pay, a story first reported by the Daily Record.

Chasing News is all over it, too:

The mayor of Dover, NJ and the town’s eight aldermen have approved 50 to 60 percent pay raises for themselves and other city officials.

Many who live in the Morris County town, made up of a little over 18,000 residents, aren’t happy about it.

Mayor James Dodd who served the town for 11 consecutive years will earn $49,500, up from $31,000. Aldermen’s salaries will increase from $12,000 to $18,500.

These officials serve part time Still many in the town say the money would be better spent helping the town’s homeless population and providing jobs.”

Is there any justification for a small town part-time mayor earning as much as a State Senator?

Save Jersey’s own Matt Rooney joined Bill Spadea and the Chasing Team on Wednesday for some much-needed straight talk…
