MERCER COUNTY GOP GOVERNMENT TEAM
OUR TOP 10 PLEDGE TO YOU
THE CITIZENS OF MERCER COUNTY NJ
Lisa Richford for County Executive
Anthony Davis, Ira Marks and Jason DeFrancesco for County Freeholders
Susan Bagley for County Clerk
1- We will hire only the most qualified employees to work for Mercer County, not the family, friends and associates of top ranking political operatives.
2- We will not hire employees who have serious criminal records when just as qualified law abiding citizens are available for employment.
3- We will terminate from County employment political operatives /campaign managers, keeping these political outlays segregated and payable by outside, personal campaign funds.
4- We will not hire political cronies to positions that will allow them to “double dip” ie: collect a county salary while still collecting their state pension. We will work tirelessly to end this practice.
5- We will work diligently to keep Mercer County government as cost effective as possible/keeping County taxes down/while maintaining a high level of service to our citizens.
6- We will provide our citizens with user friendly/easy to read budget and financial reports, which explain income and expense variances, and not deny legitimate requests for specific information from any Mercer County citizen.
7- We will not avail ourselves of the use of County provided property (ie: county provided vehicles) unless there is a clear need for such property based on work requirements.
8- If we are not mentally or physically capable of performing our duties, we will step away from office, not continue in our positions by using internal staff to perform duties that we should be doing.
9- We will completely revise the Mercer County Pay to Play rules, making them much stronger. This will end the practice of indirectly forcing county vendors and county employees into contributing considerable campaign funds to the County Executive in order to keep their county business or county jobs.
10 -We will always remember our pledge to Provide SERVICE before SELF: Not SELF before SERVICE as demonstrated on numerous occasions by our political opponents.
