To the editor:

Thank you to Upper Township Republicans. Our win on June 3 indicated solid support.

I walked door-to-door in several Upper Township voting districts but unfortunately I was not able to walk in all of them. Also, I was able to attend several events to meet and greet the people of Upper Township. During all of these walks and events many people voiced their questions and concerns, some based on misunderstanding and some real concerns based on personal experience. I learned something from each and every person I talked with, and I greatly appreciate your discussions.

To the editor:

After reading Jeff Pierson’s remarks in last week’s edition of The Gazette, I felt it important that the reasons for my decision to vote no on the lighting for Amanda’s Field be clearly stated to the public.

 The ship, shown during its launch, is named after Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, the youngest Chief of Naval Operations in the Navy’s history. The ship, shown during its launch, is named after Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, the youngest Chief of Naval Operations in the Navy’s history.  My wife Connie and I drove up to Bath, Maine last month at the invitation of the late Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt’s family for the ceremonial launching of the USS Elmo R. Zumwalt. The ceremony was held outside in as near-perfect weather as you can hope to find in southern Maine in April. Not a cloud in the sky, with temperatures approaching 70 degrees as the ceremony came to an end.

PRO club trying to regain control of committee

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Tuesday, May 20, 2014 12:00 am

To the editor:

In an April 29 letter to the editor, Richard L. Phillips, president of the Upper Township People’s Republican Organization (PRO) wrote “The PRO Club has nothing to do with the candidate selection process” in a response to a letter I had submitted. I have a question for Mr. Phillips. How many of the 29 Upper Township committee people are PRO members? I’ll bet the number is close to 29.

Letter: President: PRO Club does not select candidates

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Tuesday, April 29, 2014 09:37 am

To the editor:

This letter is in response to a letter to the editor from Mr. Orvis Leopardi that appeared in the April 2 edition of The Gazette. His comments were used to announce his candidacy for the Upper Township Committee seat to be voted on in November. In his remarks he also took time to disparage the Upper Township People’s Republican Organization, also known as the PRO Club. Having been in politics for decades, he should certainly know how the electoral process operates. There were several areas in his remarks which may confuse the average voter.
