Please Call Todd Ruckle About His Parking Meters Today


At this point, we’ve caught the Newark City Administration scamming, scheming and outright lying about the new parking meters in Newark.

But despite all the evidence of corruption —

— Councilman Todd Ruckle is still refusing to change the situation and make things right!

We need your help TODAY, Eric; before tonight’s Newark Council Meeting at 7:00 PM.

Please call Councilman Ruckle at (302) 893-1601 and tell him to stop playing games with your money.

Make sure he knows that you want him to make the council RE-VOTE on his money grab meters.


The “Ruckle Meters” were purchased by the city for $300,000 and estimated to bring in an additional $650,000 to the city budget.

But that wasn’t good enough for the city bureaucrats.

They wanted to trump themselves by scamming an estimated EXTRA $55,000 from the citizens by clearing the meters when cars pull away and keeping any leftover money.

They said refunds were impossible. That was a lie.

They said the default charge amount couldn’t be the minimum. That was a lie.

And Council Members Polly Sierer, Stu Markham, Marge Hadden, and Todd Ruckle voted to move forward with the meters.

But then we acquired internal email communications exposing collusion among the City Staff and with Council Member Stu Markham to suppress information and avoid questions from another Council Member —

— even plotting to “tag team” the discussion to guarantee their desired outcome.


With all of this new information that the Council was denied when they originally voted on it, it’s absolutely critical that they RE-VOTE on the Ruckle parking meters.

The person who cast the deciding vote must hear from you. He’s the only one who might change his vote and make things right.

Call Councilman Todd Ruckle at (302) 893-1601 and tell him to make the Newark Council RE-VOTE on his meters and to change his vote to NO.

The council meets tonight at 7:00 PM in the Newark Municipal Building at 220 South Main Street (Elkton Road).

As always, Newark Campaign for Liberty will be there to keep our members informed.

But right now, we need your help to shake Councilman Todd Ruckle from refusing to stop stealing your money. 

Please make the call. And thank you for all you do for liberty.

In Liberty,

Jeff Lawrence
