YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT
helps the County Watchers shine a light on Union County Government
Since 2005, the Union County Watchdog Association volunteers, along with our County Watchers blog, has provided the public with the most comprehensive, unbiased and independent reporting on the workings of Union County government, which accounts for approximately 1/4 of your property tax bill. We are the only media group consistently investigating Union County government. Without our diligence the public would primarily be told what the county wants you to know through their million dollar taxpayer-funded public information department.
Through your generosity we have made significant progress in chronicling and trying to explain the rampant waste, fraud and abuse with interactive budget presentations, investigative reports, and attending and taping every freeholder meeting and providing follow-up reports and commentary.
Please make your tax-deductible contribution to the UCWA on our website at www.unioncountywatchdog.org or mail a check to the below address. Historically we’ve asked for a $10.00 annual contribution per family. We ask for your continued support and that you be as generous as you can afford. Your generous contributions solely fund our efforts to keep watch over Union County government.
We look forward to watching Union County government in 2015 and it is proving to be even more challenging than the last 9 years. Taxes have risen over 100% since 2000 and show no sign of abating and county debt has ballooned with a freeholder board guaranteed election of whatever handpicked candidates the Regular Union County Democratic Machine throws out there gets a blank check written against your wallet.
There is no doubt that without the UCWA there as your voice and Union County government’s watchdogs taxes would have more than tripled over that time, none of their shenanigans would have been reported and shady officials like George Devanney would still be your County Manager and Theodore Romankow would still be your County Prosecutor.
Our work to educate the public and advocate for the elimination of waste, corruption and incompetence is far from over. Good government can only be achieved through a system of checks and balance – a system that includes the watchful eye of the people.
