Former Ventnor Mayor Tim Kreisher agrees. Un-contested elections are a really bad thing.
Kriesher talked about upcoming election issues with WPG Radio host, Harry Hurley on March 27.
In Ventnor, the 3 incumbents, Holtzman, Landgraf & Kriebel, are running un-opposed.
Ventnor elected leadership is not exceptional. One of them is terrible.Harry Hurley, WPG Radio
Hurley: I don’t like when there’s no competition. Makes people in office WORSE then they would otherwise be. They act immortal.
Listen to WPG Hurley radio clip:
NOTES from radio interview:
No matter what they accomplished over the past 4 years, it’s BAD to have no opposition. Not good for government. Gives people no choice.
Hurley: Honestly, it’s not like they did an incredible job.
Vote by mail in Ventnor for upcoming election. Hurley and Kreisher discuss potential for postponing election.
Tues. May 12 is our local election day. It’s a total ‘vote by mail’ election. Potential for abuse.
Q: Why did no one step up to challenge Holtzman, Landgraf & Kriebel?
Answer from Kreisher: Social media may be the culprit. Is running for a Ventnor Commission seat worth all those nasty attacks against you and your family?
NOTE: Hurley wanted Albie Battalia, Tim Kreisher and Mike Advena to form a ticket and run in Ventnor.
