To the editor:

After having been a day tripper to our island, my wife and I became part time homeowners for 15 years andd now have been full time residents for the past 10 years. We have a great appreciation for all of the many things wonderful about Brigantine and for the leadership of our city council who have done a fine job over that long period of time. Have we always agreed with our mayor and council majority on every issue they have handled, led or addressed? Certainly not, but we never doubted their honesty, sincerity, or desire to do the right thing for all of our residents and visitors. Never. Who has ever done more good things for this island over the years than Mayor Phil Guenther?  No one that I am aware of in my more than 26 years as a part time and full time resident and taxpayer.

Letter: Democratic votes won’t ruin quality of life

To the editor:

The main theme of these letters suggest that if anyone votes for a Democrat somehow the quality of life, for all residents, will be negatively impacted. This line of rhetoric is sheer nonsense and as usual the authors offer only their opinions. Their entire praise for their candidates revolves around how nice they are as people. Somehow, Brigantines financial problems never appear in these letters.

To the editor:

I hope voters have looked closely at the Republican plan to save the city “possibly” $20 million over 20 years. I highly recommend doing this with the Republican ad in one hand and the municipal salaries list from the Taxpayers Association in the other. Doing this, I found the following information:
