To the editor:

Thank you for my 70 percent win on Nov. 4. I walked door-to-door in 10 Upper Township voting districts, which included well over 1,000 homes. Unfortunately I was not able to walk in all of the districts. Also, I was able to attend numerous community events to meet and greet many of the fine people residing in Upper Township.

To the editor:

Alzheimer's is a devastating, debilitating brain disorder that robs people of their cognitive abilities and ultimately their lives. Every 67 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's disease, which is the nation's sixth leading cause of death. Alzheimer's is the only disease in the list of top-10 causes of death for which there is no way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression. In 2013, Alzheimer's cost our nation more than $200 billion, making it our most expensive disease.  There are currently 85,000 residents living with Alzheimer's or a related disorder within the seven South Jersey counties. Between now and 2025, it is projected that our state will have a 23.5 percent increase in residents age 65 and older living with Alzheimer's.  Now New Jersey residents have an opportunity to voice their concerns and assist in shaping the future for the state in dealing with this disease.

To the editor:

I just finished watching the Oct. 14 Upper Township Committee meeting. During this meeting Committeeman Anthony Inserra was reprimanded for interfering with the bidding process for the lights at Amanda’s Field.

To the editor:

Regarding the article on the baseball field lighting controversy and the allegations that an action on my part resulted in the “bid process being tainted,” I wish to state the facts of the matter once and for all.

Leteter: Pierson has leadership, management experience

To the editor:

With the General Election just around the corner, I hope each voter in Upper Township takes the time to learn more about Jeff Pierson, candidate for Upper Township Committee. We have the opportunity to make a difference with our vote and make sure we elect a man with exceptional leadership qualities as his record over many years proves. Sometimes we feel our vote doesn't count or we can let someone else do it. This November that is not the case.

Letter: Tainted bidding process costing taxpayers more money

To the editor:

Yes, it is that time of year where elected officials are running for reelection, many of which unfortunately turn to making statements that are fabricated and often lack the transparency expected of our elected officials. Over the past three years, I have served the citizens of Upper Township on Township Committee and I believe it is my duty to address statements made by Committeeman Anthony Inserra in which he has taken credit for budgetary savings but lacks transparency when questioned about his own spending practices.

Letter: Inserra looks for ways to save tax dollars

To the editor:

Deputy Mayor Anthony Inserra deserves reelection to Upper Township Committee. An independent Republican and supporter of the taxpayer, he is not committed to any political machine or organization. His election three years ago garnered the support of Republicans, Democrats and independent voters alike. He has a strong devotion to family, church and the community which he serves.

Letter: Inserra had nothing to do with health care savings

Written by Opinion Monday, October 20, 2014 11:00 pm

To the editor:

After serving for 12 years on Upper Township Committee, I felt that after I left office I would not have to attend a future Township Committee meeting. That all changed as I read several articles in The Gazette concerning placing lights at Amanda’s Field. I was further convinced that I should attend after reading The Press of Atlantic City’s article where Committeeman Anthony Inserra claimed that he had saved the township $230,000 in health care costs.

To the editor:

Upper Township needs to reelect Deputy Mayor Tony Inserra to ensure our community remains a clean, safe and affordable place to live.

Mr. Inserra’s opponent has admitted the township is in good shape under the current leadership. So why is he running? Maybe to try and return Upper Township to PRO Club rule? Mr. Inserra has always put the best interest of our township before anything else and owes no allegiance to any political association or club.

To the editor:

It is disgraceful that our community had a chief of a firehouse allegedly steal thousands of dollars from the hard-working people of this township. What are our trusted elected officials going to do to ensure the hard-working people of this community that this will never happen again?
