    I wonder how many DPW workers it took to pull a twig out of the ground.

    #1 – Sir, I’m shocked, shocked that someone would blaspheme our great DPW as you have. I demand an apology in the name of all that’s good and fine and wonderful with Belmar. If an apology is not forthcoming, I demand satisfaction.

    They removed them for the Seafood Festival (it would look bad). They’ll probably replant new ones so they are here for summer then they will die again etc.

    What does Matt Doherty have against palm tree???

    He buys them (with public money) just to kill them and then throws them away. If this was an animal he would be in jail.

    I believe Mayor Matt suffers from Dendrophobia.

    I think we need a memorial service, or vigil for all of the palm trees Mayor Matt Doherty has killed.

    Can we get some candles and such? Maybe pictures of them when they were alive. A blow up palm tree in remembrance. Why do they have to keep dying for no reason?

    In all honesty. I think the whole palm tree situation was Mike Campbells idea. The palm trees makes him feel like he is still a cop in San Diego.

    #9 Free not-so-subtle campaign ad paid for by the citizens of Belmar under the guise of being a welcome to the Seafood Festival? Since when is it only one individual welcoming people to the festival. Isn’t it all of us Belmarians and vendors that would be welcoming everyone? Ridiculous…

    Since when do Palm trees grow up in the north? Two years they have not survived so why are they spending the money? We would be better off if we planted tomato plants and sold the tomatoes and make money. Just a suggestion.
