To the Editor:
I’d like to address Don Lelion’s letter (“Dirty Politics,” 10/14) concerning the placement of Franco and Moran garden indicators all around Little Egg Harbor.
I never feel our marketing campaign volunteers did what Mr. Lelion alleges. But considering that the matter is elevated, why is it that only Franco and Moran symptoms routinely disappear when placed on nearby and county roads? I’m guaranteed some have now observed the disparity. The two LEHT and Ocean County governments guarantee our crew that they didn’t eliminate them. Nevertheless at least 3 dozen of our lawn signs placed along streets like Route 539 and Mathistown Street have disappeared. We even identified a single flung into a tree and another mangled outside of recognition on Radio Road. Inversely, our workforce never touches Gormley/Kehm indications. Chat about dirty politics, ideal?!
Is Don Lelion’s letter an endeavor to paint Gormley and Kehm as underdogs, victimized by the placement of just two of their opponents’ lawn signs, though our signals are uprooted? The Gormley/Kehm marketing campaign has several billboard-sized indications put on roadsides all in excess of city, and a campaign war chest 100 instances much larger than our possess, generally from large donors. Meanwhile, our ordinary contribution is $22, forcing us to swap garden indicators on a shoestring price range.
I located his responses to be distasteful simply because Gabe and I could have operate numerous attack advertisements about Deputy Mayor Kehm’s put up-Superstorm Sandy assets tax reduction, which was allegedly much and away over and above the reductions granted to his neighbors, or Committeeman Gormley’s totally taxpayer-backed industrial garbage pickup. We selected not to mainly because we never enjoy filthy politics.
All of our advertisements are about what we stand for, our vision for our town, and how we want to unite Republicans, Democrats and independents in bettering our neighborhood. It’s why our web page is named LEHUnited.com.
