Letter: More questions on baseball field lighting

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

To the editor:

I read the Oct. 1 article headlined “Mayor: Baseball lighting project should be rebid” in the Upper Township Gazette and came away with some questions regarding the whole process of going out to bid.

First, did Upper Township Committee explore any other options for getting the work done other than putting the project out to bid? Were grants available for lighting the baseball fields? What about local tradesmen who might be willing to do some, or all, of the work as a gift to the children of the township?

As reported in the Atlantic City Press on Oct. 3, Strathmere and Whale Beach saw a threefold increase during this past summer in serious bicycle accidents, a localized spike that was the exception rather than the norm for the rest of the Cape May County.

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.
