>Letter: Time for Change in Middletown Township

>The ongoing rhetoric from the man occupying the mayor’s chair is enough to make an intelligent citizen “sick to their stomach” !
This official has no ideas of his own and the only “tool in his toolkit” is intimidation and broken promises.

The conduct displayed at township committee meetings is reprehensible as he attempts to control any dissent or differing points of view with the “five minute rule”. The latest attempt to control the opinions of the public is the despicable township act of ordering removed,the informational sign for Candidates Night at the Lincroft School on October 28th from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m..sponsored by the Lincroft Village Green Association and moderated by the League of Women’s Voters. This could not be more insulting to the intelligence of the voters in this community. Is this just another attempt to control information damaging to this majority. What are they hiding from?

In my opinion this is more of the vicious, dirty politics gripping this township under the current Republican majority. The attempt at character assassination of the Democratic candidate distributed by this bunch of bullies on a mailer is atrocious. It certainly does tell us something about the authors and their fitness for office. They are not qualified to administrate in a town of 68,000 residents of diverse political persuasions

.Every one of those residents are entitled to representation and that’s not happening under Scharfenberger and his comrades. Government in Middletown,under three decades of a Republican majority has become a dictatorship that only represents the Republican party faithful. That must change!!
