Election violence in Morristown?

There was a fire overnight at 140 Madison Avenue and the mayor, Donald Cresitello, says it began when two people set fire to a campaign sign for Councilman John Cryan. He is a Cresitello ally.

You’d think doing the traditional thing — stealing signs — would be enough.

    This is how the Walshes, Gsells and Wirths do business. They all have a lot of $$ riding on this election and are willing to win at all costs. The police have made two arrests and to no ones surprise the arsonists had just left Sona 13 when they burned the sign.

    Are you so foolish?
    It’s a total stunt to try to smear Dougherty.

  3. Edward France says:

    Not sure what happened there, but some people may need to grow up.

    If some fool is setting fires, they need be arrested, and dealt with in the courts.

  4. Cops still have not commented on this; when they do, we will get the full story

    Where’s the police report? I hope there’s not a cover-up.

    I have the same Cattano/Cryan sign on my lawn, and I am very concerned that Dougherty and the candidate from the township’s thugs are going to burn my sign and take the house with it. This is a dangerous situation.

    FYI – I totally agree with Mr.France. He always runs a positive campaign that talks about the issues. It’s too bad the Dougherty camp doesn’t take his lead.

    THUGS?
    I’m sorry but Cryan is like the KING thug. All this talk of who owns bars – at least they are smart enough to own a bar – Cryan just works at them… and beats people up at them too…

    If anything you should be worried that those morons from the Cresitello camp will burn THEIR OWN sign to look like vicitims… why would you vote for these people?? As soon as Cresitello is finished demolishing our town and leaving us in traffic up to our eye balls, he’s gonna be outta here.

    Their campaign is getting so pathetic.

    Oh please – you seem a bit touchy. Cresitello has a plan and Dougherty is all flash and no cash. Dougherty sounded the best he ever has at the nj.com forum, and that’s because he didn’t show up. I guess it wasn’t important enough for him. At least we didn’t have to listen to him waffle back & forth. He has too many skeletons in his closet. He’s in the pocket of the developer of Willow Hall and the bars. Isn’t there pay-to-play laws against that?

    Fred – please press for the police report. We need to hold these people accountable.
