WEST CAPE MAY – Mayor Pam Kaithern, Deputy Mayor Peter Burke and Commissioner Carol Sabo said this week that they will seek re-election in the Nov. 5 election for the West Cape May Board of Commissioners.

“We will run as a team on a platform including continued efficient borough operations which contributed to the recent unprecedented reduction in property taxes for owners in West Cape May,” said Sabo. “Taxpayers enjoyed one of the few reductions among New Jersey municipalities.”

Kaithern said West Cape May works efficiently and utilized new revenues to offset taxes.

“As one of the few communities in the state to reduce taxes, we are proud of our efforts and will strive for continued efficiency,” she said.

Kaithern pointed to a grant West Cape May received almost 10 years ago to develop the Back Yard Park, which serves as home to the farmers’ markets. The grant helped make the markets one of the most successful in the state and served as a launch pad for numerous local businesses, she said.

“At no cost to the taxpayers, proceeds from the farm market, tomato and lima bean festivals in Wilbraham Park fund maintenance and expansion programs for our parks and open spaces and programs which enrich life in our community,” Kaithern said.

Burke said he will continue to listen to residents.

“We are mindful of maintaining the wonderful small town quality of West Cape May that many love and want to hold on to,” said Burke. “We are strong advocates for sustainable community and business growth.”
