    #2 That’s his problem he thinks he is a dictator and his wacky ideas are proof of it. We are in a great deal of debt and who is going to step in and help us?
    I hope that he is elected to Freehold’s Board and we can start some kind of survival and recovery.

    When I attended the meeting of the vote for the new pay to play ordinance Brian was trying his best to try and justify why he should vote for it. After I listened to Tom Fahey give his speech, I thought the only person who could possibly vote for it would be someone who is morally and ethically challenged.
