  1. I am glad to see this coming together of Ventnor businesses.

    The Margate MBA does a nice job.
    However, they are really an arm of Margate Government.

    They receive about $95,000.00 a year from Margate to run their programs.

    Our Ventnor business districts need some TLC. THIS LOOKS LIKE A GOOD START. I WISH THIS GROUP MUCH SUCCESS. Hopefully Ventnor government will lend its financial support. Having thriving and attractive business districts benefits everyone. Ventnor is finally starting to take off, with so much new residential and business construction. It needs and deserves updating of its business districts!
