Olde Suckasunny Day …

was commemorated today in Roxbury and it drew such luminaries as Anthony M. Bucco, a candidate for the state Assembly this year, and Rep. Rodney P. Frelinghuysen, R-Harding.

However, township Republicans did not have a booth to greet their visitors. What was that all about? Some Republicans who were there had to find a home in a booth of an environmental organization.

Township Democrats did have a booth and among the literature being dispersed was a pamphlet to elect three Democrats to the township council in Parsppany. Parsippany? Yep, Roxbury may have about 20,000 people, but town Dems are not fielding any candidates this year. I wonder how many Parsppany voters were in Roxbury today.

You can size up the township political scene this way:
The Dems had a booth, but no candidates.
The GOP has candidates, but had no booth.
