What number on the list is Lacey Township? 127 and a 1/2? Apparently, the Republican Christie shills on the Township Committee haven't figured out that Christie is a Democrat yet.

Oh get real! Lacey's population is 27,000 and Toms River's population is 91,000. Who the hell do you think had more damage?
