Status Report #3

June 22, 2017

I have now been on Council for one and half years and this is my third status report. In this update, I would like to focus upon taxes. We are all keenly aware that New Jersey residents pay the highest property taxes in the nation, and each year they goes up. In the early 1990s, approximately 75% of property taxes in Summit were paid by residential property owners—today the proportion is ...

Say No to Negative Campaigning in Summit

June 20, 2017

As a candidate for Common Council At Large, I pledge to not engage in negative campaigning. I’ve asked the same of my running mates and extend that challenge to our opponents as well. We should further disavow the negative efforts of others, acting directly or indirectly, on our behalf.  

Summit is a special place. I love this City, my family’s home for the last 22 years, plus ...

What?  It’s not good to be beating the market? When a market is this narrow and concentrated, outperformance may be inconsistent with every important investing tenet.

Nearly 60% of the ...

Continuity.

In most chain-hotels the concept is virtually extinct. In fact, many national brands -- as a practice -- intentionally rotate their senior management and managers from property to property which, while it may have its benefits, it is certainly far from prototypical for customers who have to adjust to new contacts, faces, personalities and styles.

However, and as now must be ...
