EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Yesterday, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) visited the East Brunswick Community Arts Center to present a check for $1.6 million in federal funding for drainage improvements to Dunhams Corner Road, which borders East and South Brunswick. In attendance was East Brunswick Mayor Brad Cohen, members of the Township Council, Department Heads, and South Brunswick Mayor Charles Carley.

“As a Member of the House Appropriations Committee, I play an important role in deciding where and how the federal government spends its money,” said Watson Coleman, “It continues to be of the utmost importance that we invest in improving our infrastructure. Future generations will benefit from the forward-looking actions we take now.”

The funding will be used to add a crucial drainage system to Dunhams Corner Road, a 40-year-old road shared by both townships. The culvert that goes over Ireland Brook will also be repaired.

Why do we pay taxes to the Federal Gooferment and then have to “beg” for the money to fix our infrastructure?

Passing money from the Taxpayer to various levels of Gooferment and then between levels of Gooferment is terribly immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

Some pundit quipped that each level of Gooferment takes ½ as a processing cost.

If that’s even close to correct, then it illustrates how much each dollar for a local project really costs us!
