Letter: Inserra had nothing to do with health care savings

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.

Letter: Inserra has fought hard for taxpayers

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?

Letter: More questions on baseball field lighting

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?

To the editor:

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:

A few years past I made a request to Upper Township Committee that Upper Township join the Community Rating System, a program that benefits the community with increased flood plain management as well as premium discounts for policy holders, offered by the National Flood Insurance Program.

The time has come. Beach tags and boat ramp fees are in the best interest of the township and its areas of Strathmere and Whale Beach.

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.
