Political corruption January 16, 2013 at 12:43 AM
The Aberdeen Police Department cost an extra $22,000.00 for Hurricane Sandy? And the Police Chief dared to blame technology for the complete and total failure that left so many residents in a bad way when they were needed them most probably prepared and padded this cost figure. Another example of the corruption in Aberdeen. I forgot though our politicians and emergency responders will try harder according to the Aberdeen bulletin I got in the mail down here last week. Like Tom Cruise said in that movie a few years back Show Me the Money. I say to the Matawan Patch Show us all of the Corruption. just follow the money trail.
