On June 3rd, 3 days before the
Primary Election, I found the city of East Orange plastered with
disrespect and vandalism by the LINE-A Democrats, this time
colored Green, as if we didn't need a reminder who is responsible for
this year. Ted Green, running for Mayor, has been a councilman
since 2006, and he should know well the city codes and ordinances
that he helped write and put in place. Yet, once again, he and
all the Line-A Democrats have trashed our city with their signs
in spite of having it reported again and again each year since I
started noticing what was going on. 2014 - 2015 - 2016
This poster is definitely one of
Ted Green's, using his campaign slogan, and nailed to a tree in
front of our beloved and historic Brick Church on Martin Luther
King, Jr. Boulevard. The man has no sense of honor, or decency or
civic responsibility. Worst of all, he has no shame.
I contacted Kenwyn Williams about
Ted Green and the Line-A signs. Now I know why Kenwyn Williams
was hemming and hawing over whether the signs violated the code.
He wrote: "I think there is an exception when there is an
election with the caveat that it be removed within days after the
election." and when I asked him to show me where that was
written in the code, he responded "There are always higher
code Jim." That was before my photographer saw Kerwyn
Williams' campaign poster nailed to a tree.

I will be holding all my dated
photographs for use as evidence, if the city can't collect the
appropriate fines from those responsible and the case has to go
to court. If we want East Orange restored to its former beauty
and respectability, we can't let a few Council members and
wannabee politicians drag OUR city down.
