Democracy Inaction 

The indefatigable Mark Feffer reports at PropertyTaxNJ that a Washington Township resident, Kevin Nedd, wanted a non-binding referendum question added to the November ballot asking if the township's tax rate should be cut by five percent and future tax increases tied to Social Security cost-of-living allowances.

The notion was swatted away by Councilman Walter Cullen who said the referendum was "a waste of time" because "everybody would vote for it."

I've got to think Mr. Cullen is not on the ballet this year.

Mr. Nedd is collecting petitions.
