To the editor:

I have been coming to Wildwood Crest for 40 years and own a residence for the past 15 years.  Because Wildwood raised their fees for beach events there is no reason for the Crest to pick up these events.  Money, not concern for the residents, is the only reason to allow these events to move to the Crest beaches.  Money for the town or the Moreys as sponsors?
