Dude, Where’s My Platform?


During my morning Belmar browse I happened across the upcoming events page of Jim Keady’s campaign web site.

I looked around the site and it struck me how there’s so much information on how to help Jim:  “Donate”, “spread the word”, “volunteer”, “register to vote”, “get involved”.  But I don’t see anything about who Jim is, what he stands for, why he’s running or what he plans to do about New Jersey’s many problems.  I guess he thinks just being a Democrat is enough.

I did like the artwork for his upcoming fundraiser and decided to borrow the idea for my own ad:

    Keady volunteers out last night. I’m Unaffiliated and watched as he checked his blackberry for where to knock-only Democrats. Keady’s Facebook expresses his “Progressive” and “populist” beliefs. He is ideology driven and his ideology of “social justice” calls to the less than 10% of District 30 voters.
    His many recent appearances on MSNBC Ed’s Show his disconnect not only with the majority of voters who are moderate Republicans but kills his chances with blue collar Dems and most Independents. His campaign forces anyone to ask “just who he would represent in Trenton”? Fortunately the candidate who reaches out to the unions and the teachers has no monetary support. NJ Election Law- Campaign search shows less than 2 thousand , all small contributions except for 1000. from NY, NJ Bar Owner Johnney Mac. Looking at David Rible, as before 250 thousand from sources like IBEW, NJ Labor Pac- Maggie, NJEA. Both the contributions and friends on Keady’s site are mostly out of district. I guess that is who he asks for their concerns.Keady, who has no skin in the game as a renter, is clueless about what concerns taxpayers in District 30. He aso wants to redistribute the wealth and supports Bernie Sanders for President. When I wrote him in May , stating “if you want to know why you lost the election…” He didn’t get it. On Nov. 5th he probably won’t get it either.

    The graphics totally work Dave. Keady choose the 4 leaf clover. There are approximately 10,000. 3 leaf clovers for every one 4 leaf clover. So his aspired odds are about 20 votes out of the entire registered voters in District 30. Now you chose the symbol and colors of Israel. How many Jewish registered voters live in the State of Israel. BINGO, we have a winner here.

    You do understand that I’m not running against Jim Keady for assembly, I’m running against Jennifer Nicolay and Tom Burke for council.

    #10. If you watch the video of the event,the people are all yelling for Keady to “sit down”. You may want to watch it and rethink your analysis.

    i am surprised that the fundraiser is not at Pyanoe Plaza, like the Mayor’s Ball. If it belongs to the public and not just the democrats, how about a rally there for Dave…

    I thought school board was non-partisan. Why is a school board candidate being supported by the Democratic party?

    #15 Its called colluding with the Union, the teachers union. Whenever they say “its for the children”, hold onto your wallet tightly.
