Fios Reports!

Fios1 News, which I must confess I never heard of before yesterday, visited the boardwalk to report on the dispute over Doherty’s plans for the donated Buy-a-Board funds:

Notice Doherty always talks about the legality of it, like his resolution expanding the permitted uses of the money—which none of the actual donors voted for—or the approval of his cronies at the Department of Community Affairs.  But he never addresses the morality of it.

It was a lie.

Please Google:  Belmar “actual boards” or click here.

Look how many times we were told “actual boards”.  Hundreds.

But now we’re told that what was meant by “boards” was a two inch parcel of real estate with your name on it on a sign board for a year or two.

Did anyone notice Doherty’s quote from last week’s APP story?

“No one actually bought a board; they bought a board that has their name on it that’s on the boardwalk, everybody who provided financial assistance to us is up there.”

Did a single person out there think that that’s what “Buy a Board” meant?

    Why is Belmar the only shore town with all this controversy? Ever time you turn around there seems to be a problem. I gotta run for mayor. The five families will back me.

    The mayor shouldn’t let anyone tell him he doesn’t have a future in comedy.

    From Belmar’s webpage – Today Mayor Matt Doherty announced the “Buy a Board” Campaign in Belmar. It will allow residents and visitors alike to donate money towards the actual boards that make up the boardwalk.

    Everybody knows the Gov will be in Belmar Wednesday. Does anyone venture to guess how many times he’ll mention “recovery” and “pavilions” ?
