It is certainly shaping up to be a silly season...

with Jen and Ellen playing gotcha and the legislative candidates of both parties running against business as usual in Trenton.

In the county Freeholder race, Rob Clifton should send the APP editors a thank you note for burying this article deep in the paper. Do we really need a resolution that 1) forbids county contractors from an already illegal practice, hiring illegal aliens, 2) requiring that prevailing wage be paid on all contracts (that is already the law, except for jobs of less than $11,000) and prohibits discrimination against minority contractors?

Clifton and Cantor have been doing a winning job using Anna Little's playbook on ethics reform. Instead of silly resolutions that are obvious political panders, they ought to look to Little's ideas for reducing county spending and reforming hiring practices.

They ought to do it fast before the next stroke of Barham genius dominates the headlines and rekindles the Tobia and Harvey stories.
