A website, Phillipsburg Fact Check, has been created to counter untruths and inuendos that are being spread by the Republican campaign.  Also included on this page are some fact checking on rumors that are circulating regarding the Democratic candidates.

Wherever possible, documentation is provided on the Fact Check website.


Information posted:

Does JP Stettner really endorse one of the Republican candidates? You will see that this assertion receives a rating of: Pants on Fire. Documentation is provided.

Does Mayor Ellis want to waste an estimated $4.5 million relocating City Hall, rather than $1.7 million renovating it? You will see that this assertion by the Republicans receives a rating of: Pants on Fire. Documentation is provided.

Breaking News on info to be posted shortly:

It will also be shown that unlike the Phillipsburg Democratic Town Council campaign, the Phillipsburg Republican Town Council campaign is being funded by interests outside of Phillipsburg.  Large amounts of money are being thrown into the campaign by outside interests that wish to maintain control of Phillipsburg and continue to reap the financial rewards that go with maintaining their outside control.

You should expect more spurious attacks on the current Democratic administration in the days to come.  We respond as quickly as we can to the Republican untruths and inuendos as they are being thrown out into the campaign.
