Mrs Wronka lives on Monmouth ave and has been one of the most effect homeowners in the neighborhood, often on rainy days during high tide the flood water have reached her front yard or worst:
However, as a resident on Monmouth Avenue who has participated in Township meetings and meetings with Congressmen Pallone regarding this issue many years ago, and then most recently with the current Committee for several months, I must set the record straight.
It was Committee member Patrick Short who first embraced the idea of a solution to our problem and reached out to the residents of Monmouth/Brainard/ Wilson Avenues of Port Monmouth. His was the first suggestion of the pump station and other possible avenues that he wished to propose to the Committee. He was quickly endorsed by Sean Byrnes of the Committee and then Anthony Fiore. With that support in place, the Mayor and Deputy mayor then joined in support.
Patrick Short’s support is what got us where we are today regarding a solution and hopefully it will finally be realized. (my emphasise)
