Letter: Democrats lack proper respect

To the editor:

I feel that all elected officials should be held to the highest standard of professionalism and integrity, or they shouldn’t hold a seat on council.  I’ve attended many city council meetings, and over this past year, have been shocked, even embarrassed, by the low level of respect the Democrats have exhibited during these meetings… how they condescendingly attack our mayor and anyone else whose opinions disagree with theirs. They have double-talked their way through important issues, contradicted their views on particular subjects, and have blind-sided the public and other members of council with off-the-wall suggestions, such as the ‘gag order’ motion that doesn’t allow the public to discuss their questions with council, once the questions are asked.  They are attempting to tear down and destroy all that is good in our government and community.

Letter: Guenther and GOP made Brigantine a great community

To the editor:

I am supporting the GOP ticket of Guenther, Simpson and Sera in the coming election for some of the following reasons. As a retired teacher for 33 years, I know the importance of having benefits and a pension. If I was hired back then with no health benefits or pension I wouldn't be able to live a decent retirement in Brigantine.
