Why does Mayor Thoms refuse to let New Providence residents vote on whether we want to allow Union County to purchase Oakwood Park? He has never explained why we can not vote.

I have spoken to many residents that want to vote but he has refused to let us have this right. It is unfortunate that his refusal has led to residents raising suspicions regarding his motives.

He has said that this is a borough park and will only be used by borough residents. Well then, let the borough residents have a say in what they want done to it.

Who can argue if it is a decision based on the majority--not a chosen few?
