CNBNEWS POINT OF VIEW:
By William E. Cleary
(November 13, 2006) Gloucester City NJ--Some die hard Democrats in Gloucester City would tell you what happened in Tuesday’s election was a fluke. To have three unknowns (William James, Nick Marchese and Jay Brophy) with no political experience defeat a well-organized Democrat machine could never happen again.
To have a Gloucester City resident running for Sheriff (Chuck Billingham) who received 2500 votes plus but was unable to carry the local candidates on his coattail to victory was a once in a blue moon occurrence.
Furthermore to have these same three political novices win the local election after the Camden County Democrat Machine held a political rally in Gloucester City featuring a national figure like Senator Kennedy; well their win was a one in a million chance.
Well I believe they (The Democrat Machine) would be wise to pay heed.
