  1. With the elections right around the corner, I hope everyone is giving some serious thought to their choices.

    Remember, with the current Three Amigos, there are too many secrets and hidden, self-serving agendas.

    Some questions we should all consider these important questions: Why did the current council members snub the open forum? Why did they change the meetings to begin at 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm during the work week? It seems like a tactic to avoid answering questions about key topics such as the DEP involvement in the proposed waterpark and and lack thereof in the dredging of the back bay. Why does it appear the DEP is dictating to Margate what we should and should not be doing in our own town? Why do our elected officials continue to Perish forbid they may have to answer questions about what is happening in Margate! For instance, if the DEP is making the decision on the so-named Water Park, why don’t they take responsibility for dredging the back bay? And if the proposed Water Park is being built on the back bay of Margate, and therefore needs access to Margate, why do we have to go along with the DEP? Can’t we refuse their access?

    Other important issues that are ignored is the current state of the school system. Do the Margate residents even know that if we don’t close one of our schools, we may be forced into taking students from Atlantic City to maintain viability?

    The Three Amigos totally avoid answering all the above questions. We deserve transparent answers to questions that affect our quality of life!

    Margate desperately needs a change in government. Voting in one new member and breaking up the Three Amigos, may be the beginning of that change.
