  1. How does one lose a business administrator position in a wealthy city like Margate?
    The job does itself.

    The former business administrator was a local connection.

    I am sure the next business administrator will be a friends and family connection.

    A 35 million dollar annual budget is a large one for a city of around 5,000 people year -round.
    Although it does swell to 20,000 people in the summer but that is only for a few months.

    The city is staffed at a ratio of 20,000 people year-round.

    A lot of high-paying jobs with health benefits and pensions for some people.

    Also, overstaffed.

    The police department alone must have around 50 officers.
    Not exactly alot of crime in Margate, is there?

    What do those 50 or so officers do for 9 months of the year when it is really quiet.

    Municipal madness.

    Margate and Longport should have merged services years ago.

    Heck, they should merge Margate, Longport and even Ventnor.


  2. Margate Elite Residents

    Does Margate still give out LONGEVITY PAY to employees? Maybe Commissioner of Revenue and Finance, Maury Blumberg, will shed some light on that topic.

    1. Longevity pay is a good point.

      However, look at the salaries, health benefits, overtime, pensions, etc., etc. for these “easy” jobs in this wealthy city.

      Imagine if the Margate police had to deal with what Atlantic City Police or Camden Police have to deal with?

      City police are “real” police.
      These suburban police serve a purpose but usually too many of them and overpaid.

  3. Corruption at its finest now Mosca is pushing windmills nobody wants
    That are built by foreign country companies and the fisherman get affected as well as the whales and Dolphins and birds. Whatever happened to don’t kill the whale ? It evil all these people care about is money. Sad world we live in.

    1. Follow the money as it usually tells the story.

      Those windmills, if built, will be a disaster as many of us already realize.

    2. Ed – oh please, spare us. Instant environmentalists like you have had no issues with the long-proven damages to people, all forms or marine life etc from oil and gas which is apparently fine since that they fund your politics. There is none, as in ZERO actual evidence linking the windfarm activity to whale and dolphin deaths. There IS endless emotion, opinion and theory that lemmings like you have latched onto.

      1. Read the research on how these windmills are not working out over water in Europe.

        Remember that cold Texas winter a few winters ago and how their windmills shut down and those were over land.

        Plenty of open space in New Jersey, put the windmills on land.

        Easier to install and easier to maintain windmills over land.

        Natural gas and oil will always be the main fuels.

        Do you see China and India using less oil?

        How do you think electric cars get their energy…from electricity which is produced by oil and coal.
