I am floored at statements supporting John Bencivengo’s decision to not resign. He is innocent until proven guilty….I get that. I said it on WZBN the day the Times first ran with the story.

Saying that he can still do his job? Ignoring the fact that he has to invest a lot of time into helping with his defense? Saying that this will not be a distraction to him or to other employees? Incredulous. These are delusions. They fly in th face of logic.

1) There are a large number of employees gathering documents for the FBI. These are not just the Clerk’s office employees. This is the Clerk’s office, IT, Finance, Planning, Police, Senior Services, Veteran Services, the Business Administrator….How many more subpoenas will the Township be asked for?

2) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the proposed tax hike.

3) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the run down buildings we are using as community centers for seniors and teens.

4) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the Capital Roads budget, which targets roads that do not need resurfaced (I know because I drove all of them).

5) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and nor the lack of grant money coming to this community.

6) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the likelihood that we are going to get penalized for how we used Federal grant monies.

7) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the three (3) employee lawsuits pending against the Township.

8) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not about the vacancies.

9) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not the fact that there are 770 homes for sale, which indicated a large exodus from the Twp, which means higher taxes for those who stick around.

10) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not that we are losing 6 police officers.

11) Everyone is talking about the Mayor and not asking why we spend $9 million more in discretionary spending today than we did in 2007.

The Mayor is not a distraction? Yes, he is.

John Bencivengo, there are 97,999 other people in this town other than you. Regardless of your insistence of your innocence, think about us – for once. This is not just about you. This is about business as usual and it is folly to think and to say that you can still do your job.
