For Immediate Release
Contact: Mike McManamy, West Deptford GOP Chairman
West Deptford, NJ, July 29, 2015— Due to family obligations, Jamie Padulese, the West Deptford GOP’s candidate for township committee, had to resign from her campaign.
The West Deptford GOP is thrilled to announce that former Mayor and 24-year resident, Ray Chintall, has decided to step to the plate and challenge current Mayor, Denice DiCarlo, for a seat on the township committee.
Chintall’s plans include bringing back the strong fiscal management he implemented during his time in office, representing the best interest of taxpayers and eliminating wasteful spending.
“I have no personal gains to make from being elected to office. But, when I had to sit back and watch the current administration put political gains over the best interest of the taxpayers, I knew I had to do something,” said the retired State Trooper. “My goal is simple, fight to make West Deptford Township an affordable and coveted place to live for future generations. West Deptford is a beautiful town filled with hard working people. Residents deserve local leaders they can trust to make reasonable decisions on their behalf. If elected, I promise to once again be the strong advocate for the taxpayers of this town.”
After just six months in power, Denice DiCarlo’s administration has taken our township to the brink of financial collapse. First, she rushed to pass this year’s budget using the town’s reserves while showing no regard for our infrastructure needs. Our infrastructure is crumbling and DiCarlo is doing nothing to fix it.
In these six short months, we have seen all of our major positions with in the township vacated with replacements handpicked by DiCarlo. These political appointees were awarded handsomely with six-figure salaries. Overall, the poor decisions made by this administration will haunt West Deptford for decades, setting up our taxpayers for major tax increases in the years to come.
In his campaign, Chintall plans to talk to as many concerned residents as possible about these issues and his solutions to help restore West Deptford.
