Letter to the Editor

With approximately 3 weeks left, before the Republican Primary for the Middletown Town Council elections, my email and voice mail have been flooded with inquiries as to when there will be a “Meet the Candidates Night”.

Mayor Scharfenberger, I propose we meet Monday May 24, 2010 at 7:30 pm in the Court Room at the Municipal Center.  You have been Intellectually Dishonest with us the residents of Middletown, and I think it is very IMPORTANT that the voters understand the differences that you and I have.

We are almost 5 months into the year, with a projected budget deficit of $5m and still no budget. Why!  This is completely fiscally irresponsible. I look forward to meeting with you on the 24th to discuss this subject, and many others, as we prepare for Middletown’s political make over.

Tony Avallone

Republican Candidate for Middletown Town Council
