Really - that is why he fought so hard against it during his re-election run and discredited the republican candidates??? I am sure we could dig up the newspaper articles publishing his quotes.

evans..the mayor barely ran any campaign, so to say he fought hard against anything is crazy..he practically ran unopposed! That being said he has always wanted to get a township wide paid fire, i don't care what articles you, find speak to fire officials/members that have been around. How do you think the paid Wdbg township first aid [the building by big shots] started?

You gotta be kidding gam, are you running point for the mayor on this? November 2011 published in Home News Tribune: McCormac stated: “Struben’s plan doesn’t add up because he’s looking to hire people to save money.” McCormac said “Struben is attacking a department that doesn’t need fixing.” and “There’s no problem with the delivery of fire service in Woodbridge Township,” McCormac said Struben’s plan will cost money. “You can’t add people to the budget and expect to save money,” said McCormac, a former state treasurer. McCormac said “Woodbridge has a great fire delivery program, consisting of paid firefighters and volunteers.” “People are satisfied,” McCormac said. “Fathers, sons and generations grow up as firefighters in Woodbridge.” Additionally, McCormac said, “the fire districts are legally separate from township government. The mayor’s office has no authority to hire firefighters.” He said “a referendum would be needed to make any changes to that arrangement.” “Chris Struben as Mayor could not accomplish what Chris Struben the Candidate is saying without spending a lot of taxpayer money through a referendum,” McCormac said. “He (Struben) wants to run the School Board and firehouses, and that’s not the type of system we need.”

And please, the woodbridge township first aid and rescue unit building on Queen Street behind 'big shots' was conceived before McCormac was even state treasurer for mcgreevey. Look what happened when mccormac tried to consodlidate the ambulance squads only to find out his boy hired criminals as emt's while his holier than now emminance was trying to get rid of the avenel ambulance hoods. Wanna continue gam?
