Camden County GOP Chairman: Whose Side Are The Democrats On?

New taxes, increased taxes and sweetheart tax incentive deals help no one

HADDON HEIGHTS – Recently Assemblyman Lou Greenwald issued a statement asking “whose side are you on” to which Camden County Republican Chairman Rich Ambrosino wondered, “Whose side are the Democrats on?”

“While it’s been somewhat amusing to watch the Democrats fight their civil war, I find it laughable they keep asking each other ‘whose side are you on,’” CCGOP Chairman Rich Ambrosino said. “I, my county committee and residents of Camden County want to know whose side Camden County Democrats are on.”

“Every time they tax us we wonder whose side they’re on, gas tax, rain tax, vacation tax, money to illegal immigrants to go to college, money taken from our veterans are all things that have been supported by Lou Greenwald and his fellow Democrats.” Ambrosino added, “And let’s not forget their support of shifting tax dollars out of the suburbs with sweetheart tax incentive deals that moved corporations out of Cherry Hill, Voorhees and even Burlington County.”

Ambrosino asked, “Who did all these taxes and sweetheart tax incentive deals help? Whose side was Lou Greenwald and his fellow Democrats on then?”

Answering his own question, Ambrosino said, “Certainly not the taxpayers and certainly not folks in Camden looking for jobs.”

“For New Jersey’s Democrats to keep asking ‘whose side are you on’ is ridiculous,” Ambrosino said. “It’s obvious they aren’t on the side of the taxpayers. I assure everyone, across the board, from our assembly candidates in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th districts to our county freeholder candidates and our candidates at the municipal level our candidates are on the side of the taxpayers. When Republicans win the tax increases and sweetheart tax incentive deals will stop.”

PRESS RELEASE: Camden County GOP Chairman Breaks Silence On Murphy-Norcross Fight

This afternoon, via press release, Camden County Republican Chairman Richard Ambrosino weiged in on the war between Governor Phil Murphy and George Norcross. Ambrosino’s press release follows:

CHERRY HILL – Saying, “While it’s been fun to sit back and watch two heavyweight Democrats publicly tear each other apart, I can no longer remain silent” Camden County Republican Chairman Rich Ambrosino weighed in on the Democratic Party civil war between Governor Phil Murphy and George Norcross today.

“While this fight has shown us the Governor now sees Camden County as more than just a place to dump brine and rock salt, if this public fight were only about tax incentives I might continue to sit on the sidelines and watch,” Ambrosino said. “We can argue all day about whether tax incentives are good or bad, but this particular program, instituted under former Governor Chris Christie was a good idea gone bad. The program went bad as soon as someone decided it was a good idea to use these tax incentives to move companies and their tax dollars from the suburbs to Camden City.”

Ambrosino asked, “When did it become fair to rob tax dollars from one community to attempt to build up another?”

“As to the fight between Murphy and Norcross we all know it’s about control of their party and not just tax incentives,” Ambrosino said. “And, at least in Camden County, Democrats, be they part of the machine or the insurgent column 4 Democrats, have no one to blame but themselves.”

“Both the insurgent Democrats and the machine Democrats have been voting for the Norcross machine for 28 years,” Ambrosino continued. “One need only look at a May 2006 Philadelphia Magazine article to learn two of the three ‘Three Amigos,’ state Senator Jim Beach and freeholder Jeff Nash, Norcross’ original 1991 ‘dream team,’ still hold office in Camden County.”

“After 28 years of doing the same thing over and over it’s time for folks to spare us the phony outrage,” Ambrosino said. “In Camden County the past 28 years have corrupted the democratic process and led to a public fight with the state’s governor. To restore law, order, ethics and transparency to local government it’s time for Camden County voters to stop voting the way they’ve voted for nearly three decades and end the status quo.”

Last night the Camden County Republican Committee and the Gloucester County Republican Committee joined together for their second annual Toys for Tots event.

The two GOP organizations joined together at Adelphia’s in Deptford and collected over 200 new, unwrapped toys for the Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots program.

Admittedly, I skipped last year’s event, but was glad I listened to Gloucester County GOP Chairwoman Jacci Vigilante and Camden County GOP Chairman Rich Ambrosino and attended this one. It was nice to see two county organizations come together for a good cause.
