To the Editor: At Monday night's board of education meeting, Superintendent Jeffrey Moore stated that Martin Luther King, Jr. was not a marxist. In fact, King was against Marxist tactics like violent riots and division based on race. King also said this, which is anti-Marxist: “I have a ...

To the Editor: There have been some dubious tax increase proposals (and actual tax increases) in New Jersey. The most obvious, and arguably most ridiculous, was Gov Florio's tax on toilet paper. Or an example I used this past Halloween to give my two young daughters their first introduction to ...

To the Editor: It is so funny to read the reports of the Hunterdon County Commissioners meetings. The same five people from the public always attend via phone and always bring every subject back to praising Joe Biden and his anti-American policies. One member of the public actually referred to ...

To The Editor: The City of Lambertville has a fleeting opportunity to acquire and preserve one of the most historic properties in Hunterdon County.  It must do so now for the sake of current and future generations. On April 22, the Lambertville City Council will vote on whether to acquire the ...

To the Editor: The City of Lambertville has been presented with a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity and yet there are people who have elected to ignore it. The Closson property located on 262 North Main Street in Lambertville has been a point of attraction for generations of locals and ...

To the Editor: On April 22, the Lambertville City Council will vote on whether to finalize the purchase of the Closson farm. The purchase would be funded primarily through $3.6 million in bonds issued by the city. At the March 25 meeting, some residents expressed concerns over affordability in ...

To the Editor: It's election time. Each year when election time comes around, it always brings up the same issue. Why are we, the residents of Hunterdon County and Raritan Township, willing to accept partisan politics? On the county level: We have five freeholders, all ...

To the Editor: I read the letter from Dominic Puzio on TAPinto. In the 2019 election Dominic ran for the office of Sheriff on the Democratic ticket and lost his bid for election. In his letter Dominic was very diplomatic thanking the Hunterdon County Commissioners for addressing the issues that ...

To the Editor: Why is it that NJ is one of the country's highest taxed states, but can't reduce any taxes from the funds sent to NJ from the federal government from this recent legislation? Didn't NJ bond $9B to cover the shortfall of revenue?   Plus we fund some prisoners with payments?  ...

To the Editor: As a concrete step toward a more holistic approach in addressing our community's myriad building needs (by some estimates amounting to millions of dollars) – and setting aside the school issue – I would like to recommend a city-wide, mailed survey sent to every household and ...

To the Editor: The TAP article published about the last Hunterdon County Commissioner's meeting was incomplete. It did not include all the calls that read into the record the major issues residents have with our current commissioners' lack of regard for democracy.  It also did not highlight ...

To the Editor: My name is Dominick Puzio of Raritan Township. In 2019, I ran for sheriff, an experience I am thankful to have had.  During the campaign I visited virtually every town in our County and I met with people of all ages and walks of life.  Their experiences brought me perspective to ...

To the Editor: Is it Apathy? When I turned 21, I was old enough to vote. When the first election came along, I didn’t vote.  The candidate my Father supported, and I would have supported, didn’t win. When I commiserated to my Father, he asked me if I voted and when I said no, he told me I had ...

To the Editor: The last president taught the worst politicians that if you deny and lie enough times, the public and the press will forget about it. That’s how you “win.” But we don’t forget. We demand accountability. When politicians like Hunterdon County Commissioner Susan Soloway want our ...
