Public Scrutiny is a Must

September 24, 2018

To the editor:

I would like to thank the mayor and redeveloper for inviting Councilperson Michael Harris and me, via a letter to the editor, to a private meeting, attended by them, us, and a reporter. I think it was odd to exclude Councilperson Susan Peterson since she also has many unanswered questions.

As an elected official charged with representing the best interests of the people of ...

Flemington Mayor Subverts Democratic Process

To the editor:

One day in the future our children, living in skyscrapers located in what was once the bucolic and historic Borough of Flemington, will look back and remember the day democracy died in Flemington.

It was on this day that the mayor and his three member voting bloc, including Council members Marc Hain and Brooke  Warden, ...

To the editor:

Populations that are younger are also those that will be creating families and purchasing more goods and services, while older populations tend to correlate with slow and stagnant economies. As the saying goes: demographics are ...

Puzio and Winnick Are The Answer

To the editor:

When my children were younger, I realized that if I was going to chastise them when they did something wrong I should make it a point to acknowledge when they did things right or helped when I needed help.

For the past two or three months I have been critical of the Raritan Township road department because every time it rained I had a pond in front of my driveway because the ...
