Upon receiving the latest campaign flyer from the Kobylarz/Wilcox campaign for Chatham Borough Council, I can honestly say in Ronald Reagan’s famous words: “there they go again.” Messrs. Kobylarz and Wilcox claim that development at Post Office Plaza will involve “apartment buildings” and “multi-story parking decks.” Nothing could be further from the truth.
I am proud of our Mayor and Council, who upon learning of a potential conflict of interest on the part of Councilwoman Fife, voted to start the redevelopment study from scratch. That was done transparently and it was the right thing to do. Councilwoman Fife is recused from any further deliberations on Post Office Plaza and Mayor Harris, out of an abundance of caution, will recuse himself as his partner works for Town and Country Properties.
Since the study is beginning from scratch, there are no plans, nor plans to make plans, about anything regarding Post Office Plaza. As Republican Council candidate Robert Weber indicated at last Thursday’s League of Women Voters’ debate, any speculation is just that - speculation and rumors.
Bob Weber and Steve Coffey will continue the tradition of openness and transparency. They deserve your vote on November 7th.
