To the editor:

The Egg Harbor Township Planning Board at its Sept. 16 meeting discussed The Press of Atlantic City’s Sept. 3 editorial questioning its ethics, integrity, intelligence, and decision-making ability regarding its approval of an electronic billboard on the Margate causeway. The board authorized this letter to be sent on its behalf.

It is necessary to clarify a major misrepresentation in the editorial that the pole location and billboard violated state law. Both the state Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Transportation formally approved the location of the billboard and determined the billboard to be in compliance with state regulations.

To the editor:

 Recently there have been a number of articles written about the selling of my home.

 My response was that it does not make a lot of sense to have a six bedroom home on the bay when my four sons and eight grandchildren have moved away. It is just my wife and I, so why pay $31,500 in taxes when you don’t need a large house anymore?
