To the editor:

I am a sophomore at Franklin and Marshall College pursuing medicine. I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa McClay at the Farmer’s Market two weeks ago by accident, though I have known for some time that she is campaigning for mayor of our city. I wanted to let everyone who reads this newspaper know that Mrs. McClay is dedicated to serving our community with genuine care, trust, and vision.

To the editor:

At its last meeting, city council passed a resolution setting rules for public comment at its meetings. Because this is an important and controversial vote we believe it appropriate to share with taxpayers our opinion about council’s decision.

A recent ad by the Brigantine Republican Club (which can be viewed on their Facebook page) had a picture of three monkeys. There are a lot of people in Brigantine that have minds of their own.
