Letter to the Editor

Sept. 26, 2012

To the editor:

I’m running for Borough Assembly Seat G on a platform of limited government, lower taxes and more property rights. We need less regulation overall, and the overreach by our assembly in the last few years has been more than our economy can handle. Twice the people have voted for the borough to stop trying to regulate how people heat their homes, but the assembly has already passed an ordinance set to go into effect as soon as the Home Heating Initiative expires. (Please say “yes” on Proposition 3.)

The road service areas have been treated poorly by the last two administrations, causing costs to go up considerably. This is not the example of public service that we need in our local government.

This borough has tens of thousands of acres of land that is locked up, because the onerous Title 17 subdivision standards won’t let it be developed. The borough itself has a hard time even subdividing and selling its land without losing money.

The budget between 2000 and 2010 went up 55 percent, and went up again in 2011 and 2012.

I’ve had a few negative ads aired directly against me because I exposed the myth of non-partisanship on the assembly, because I opposed more unnecessary government regulation and because I asked people to pray.

Well, here I go again, more public than the blogs they are cutting and splicing quotes out of: Please pray that God will bless us with good representation that will protect the rights he gave us.
