Gloucester Township's Mayor Dave Mayer and "the Mayer team" play dirty politics, or did they exploit our kids through the local youth sports organization?
Team Mayer had emails sent to the parents of most of the local youth sports groups that invited them to a "free" picnic at the Gloucester Township Democrat club. Some parents were upset, claiming that if their child had not signed up for Gloucester Township youth sports, that the local Democrat party, particularly, Mayor Mayer, and his council slate would not have had access to them via email. Local youth football, hockey,baseball,lacrosse, and soccer clubs were included, just to name a few. Erial baseball parents stated that they did not relieve those emails.
Most of the youth sports organizations are headed by people connected with the local democratic party organization. As one Erial parent put it. " I guess we're not connect, thank God".
This is the second known time that this has happened to youth sports club parents. Ironically the last local election is when it was noted by unhappy youth parents.
