Comment Of The Week

From Mr. Ted Ehmann:

As a former owner of an advertising agency, I am loving the over-the-top-messaging. The mayor still using “anti-pavilion leader”, as if the vote NO could not be clearer. This week we got another LIUNA mailer using stock photos of happy beach goers from N. Carolina, Florida and Virginia. Remind me to go there next year. The headline refers to the boardwalk and pavilions as the “BACKBONE OF OUR COMMUNITY”. So much for the hard working residents. Things not people. Councilwoman Blackburn states that the pavilions are ” PART OF WHAT DEFINES US”. Really! And Councilwoman Nicolay states the pavilions ” ARE ESSENTIAL AND MAKE UP THE FABRIC” of Belmar. Wow! Repeated, the message is if you vote no, you’re against seniors, children and people with special needs. Considering that I only went to Taylor once in all the past years, I feel so guilty.

    I wonder how the homeowners (tax payers) feel about the Pavilions being the “backbone of the community”? I agree, it’s about people. People always make up the community for better or for worse. God help Belmar.

    Maybe living over on Inlet Terrace Mayor Doherty can afford more debt and future taxes, but us ordinary Belmartians can’t afford another red cent. My family will all be voting NO just to get this town back in line so we can build nice (and quaint) pavilions that we can all afford to enjoy.

    Everything these days, seems to be upside down. Elected officials and borough employees calling voters and taxpayers names, assaulting them just because they disagree with how their taxes are being spent. I have lived in 5 different NJ Counties, 5 different small municipalities, NEVER have I been witness to such disrespect from local officials, the Governor and now LIUNA and the AFL-CIO. Florida is looking better every day.

    Mayor Matt on his facebook states, Vote Yes and put the “drama” behind us. Today I got his mailer. Headlines reads “To rebuild or not to rebuild, that is the question”. Who is being dramatic, paraphrasing the greatest
    dramatist of the English language. The only problem is those who oppose also want to rebuild the pavilions. So Mayor Hamlet, what you meant to opine was ” to waste taxpayer more dollars or not to waste more taxpayer dollars, that is the question. WE the taxpayers have suffered the scorns and the arrows of outrageous fortune. Quite frankly, when will you use the English word “yet” when referring to the boardwalk and the pavilions-not increasing taxes ( yet ).
