On Tuesday night the Atlantic County Board of Chosen Freeholders voted unanimously to certify the 10th consecutive perfect audit of Atlantic County Government. The 2008 audit completes a decade of unrivaled fiscal management dating back to 1999 and has solidified Atlantic County?s reputation of having the finest run County Government in New Jersey.
During the meeting auditors praised Atlantic County Government under County Executive Dennis Levinson and the Republican controlled Freeholder Board for running what they called a ?very tight ship? and doing ?a great job? financially.
The findings contained in the two-hundred page audit were so compelling that they even drew praise from across the aisle when Freeholder Jim Schroeder publicly commended the Republican administration, county employees and his predecessors on the Freeholder Board.
?Atlantic County under Republican Leadership has managed every taxpayer dollar with a prudence and efficiency that is second to none,? said Freeholder Chairman Jim Curcio. ?A decade worth of perfect audits by four different auditing firms have now confirmed what we have already known for a very long time now?Atlantic County has the finest run county government in the State of New Jersey.?
Freeholder At-Large Frank Giordano expressed his hope that the Governor and legislators in Trenton would look at Atlantic County Government before adopting this year?s state budget.
?Trenton should take a good hard look at the stark contrast between the disastrous economic policies of Jon Corzine and the fiscally responsible, tax cutting policies of Atlantic County Government,? said Giordano. ?Through careful planning and responsible fiscal management the Levinson team has been able to cut the county tax rate for eight of the last nine years saving taxpayers millions of dollars without increasing debt. Unfortunately, Trenton continues to tax, borrow and spend with a blatant disregard for the consequences on hard working Atlantic County families.
