Nutley’s Steve Rogers Supports Military Equipment For The Police

Nutley Commissioner Steve Rogers appeared on Fox & Friends Monday August 18th with a convicted felon and novelist to support military equipment for the local police. The segment was typical Fox hyperbole playing on the fears of older white Americans by pointing out the other.

Bernard Kerik, thrice married, employer of illegal immigrants, and regular on FoxNews spent four years (correction: 36 months served – Rosi) in federal prison.

FoxNews contributor Bo Dietl used the time on camera to fan the flames of racism and intolerance. At one point he claimed that the terrorists are coming back.

Rogers went on about a failure of leadership in goverrnernt and added “Ron Johnson should be relieved of command for this. What he did was embolden the wrong people.” (the wrong people being ‘not the police’)

While Bo Dietl’s comments are the most outrageous, one seriously has to ask why someone rumored to have their eyes on a Congressional seat would appear on a program with people of so little character.

Of course everyone should ask why Rogers didn’t speak out about some of the outrageous assertions made by the other two.

Both Salon and Addicting Info have done great jobs on the main story (Dietl); Rogers support for military vehicles should be of concern of Garden State residents as he has already launched a “Re-elect Steve Rogers Commission” Facebook page in Nutley.

Nothing quite like a bloke receiving two government pensions supporting even more government interference in our lives.

Taking The Country Back ~ An Election Day Fashion Statement

Making a fashion statement at the polls isn’t always easy, so imagine my surprise when I made several this morning in Nutley!

Emerging From A Nutley Tanning, er, Voting Booth

Is my Union Jack a statement about taking my country back to a time when a tea party meant the possibility of burnt toast instead of burnt crosses?

Is this just another Downton Abbey moment “every day has trouble with an American?”

Or am I pretending to emerge from a tanning booth instead of a voting booth, this is Nutley after all.

I’m not telling! Now get out there and vote!  

Nutley Mayoral Candidate Steve Rogers : Keep The Orphans and Gays Out

Horrifying. – promoted by Rosi

Nutley NJ Mayoral Candidate Steve Rogers wants you to believe that home values are in jeopardy because of the possibility that orphans or gays might move in. For real. And its in print. Before we go into some of the disturbing details of the mailer let’s start with the basics.

Nutley is a small community of less than 30,000 in the northeast corner of Essex County NJ. Home to the North American HQ of Roche Pharmaceuticals, Nutley is also famous for being the home of Martha Stewart and Robert Blake. The town has a commission style government which basically means voters choose commissioners and then the commissions decide the roles of mayor, park commission, public safety commissioner, etc. While it’s unlikely someone new to the commission would be mayor, stranger things have happened.

Steve Rogers, who ran unsuccessfully last year for Essex County Board of Freeholders on a “too much government” platform, is one of the candidates for commissioner in Nutley. It should be noted that Rogers disdain for government is about others, not him. Having served in the Navy for years, as well as the Nutley Police Force for over 30 years Rogers knows a thing or two about getting big government paychecks and large government pensions. But that’s a whole other story, today is about his positions being extolled for his shot at a commissioners seat.

Steve Rogers For Commissioner Mailer

A mailer received by most residents of Nutley in Essex County states several of Rogers positions using a combination of scare tactics while emphasizing his long career as a police officer. (Translation : the boogie man is going to get you and I’m the white knight to save you) Made to look like a newspaper under the title “The Nutley Review” a banner headline proclaims “Controlling Property Taxes is Priority #1 For Rogers”.  Above the fold it’s all County, State, and Property Taxes. Politicians love the taxes arguments because everyone seems to hate taxes. It’s an easy sell. An interesting thing about Nutley taxes is that the school system is the largest expense in the township but nowhere are schools mentioned in the mailer with a line about his serving on the board of education. It’s all pretty standard fluff until we get below the fold on page on, that’s where the hatemongering begins.

Essex County Freeholder Candidate Steve Rogers Wants You To Be Afraid

In a recent profile in NJHometown, the local Nutley NJ news blog, Steve Rogers continued his rant against Turtle Back Zoo (a facility that actually generates revenue) and instead made bombastic claims about the need for the county to spend more money on local police to protect the communiites.

Rogers cites a recent armed robbery as proof that more police are needed on the street. Well here’s the kicker, save for Newark, which is not a part of the district in which Rogers is running, crime dropped in Essex County. (Read more on nj.com : http://www.nj.com/news/index.s…

Sorry Steve, the votes of Essex County are too smart to fall for your scare tactics. Telling one group of Americans that another group of Americans is to blame for their lot in life may be good politics, but at the end of the day its bad for America.

Nutley’s Steve Rogers Wants To Take Essex County Taxpayers To The Cleaners

Ha! Steve Rogers Campaign Sign Is Alongside The Awning For The Cleaners!

Steve Rogers Takes Essex County Taxpayers To The Cleaners

Steve Rogers loves to complain about the government and taxes but here’s the skinny on Steve. While working in the Nutley NJ Police Department, a town with an average income of about $50, Rogers pulled in over 100k of taxpayer money. In addition he served in the Naval Reseerve, more taxpayer money. He recently retired from the police force while still in his 50s, earning another taxpayer funded check : his pension.

All those taxpayer funded checks are a story on their own, but it gets better. As Steve Rogers continues to blather on about the whoas of the Essex County Taxpayer, he is seeking to become Essex County Freeholder, a postion that pays $65K a year.

Seriously Steve? After biting the hand that has fed you so well you want more? The taxpayers are tired of being taken to the cleaners by double dipping politicians.

Democratic Assemblyman pulls a “Palin”

Half term? You Betcha!

It’s not every day that an Assemblyman resigns, effective immediately. But that’s what happened yesterday in Nutley, NJ where Assemblyman Fred Scalera gave his two weeks notice to move on to brighter, more lucrative pa$ture$.

The ink on his resignation letter was barely dry when praise from his Democratic colleagues began to flow. Words like “service” and “selfless” were lavished on the former Assemblymen from folks like Joe Cryan, Paul Sarlo, John McKeon and even speaker Sheila Oliver who lined to shower on the praise for his commitment to his constituents.

So when did quitting your job — and your constituents — half way though a commitment become this cool? Can we at least save the effusive praise for folks who actually follow through on their promises?
