More broken promises...

During a candidate's forum held in the fall of 2007, Howard Popper stood in front of township voters (legal pad in hand) and told us he would immediately save over $600,000 annually by moving our EMS dispatch services to the county. Based on the contract currently being negotiated with the county, the savings appear to be no where near this amount. In fact, comments by Mayor Ken Short (i.e., "after its two first years") seem to leave open the possibility the deal will cost more money in the short run. Like the 21 tax savings ideas Howard announced via a press release in 2008, which netted virtually nothing, this is yet another reason why you can't trust him and the rest of the all-GOP committee who clearly will say anything to get elected.
