Bringing LEH Together
To the Editor:
We will work together as a team, stated the newly appointed Republican Mayor Raymond Gormley when referring to the Little Egg Harbor Township Committee. Gormley went on to say that the past few years have been tough times within the township. That may be an understatement.
It’s been four years since Superstorm Sandy made its destructive landfall that produced a drop of more than $540 million in ratables and the largest tax increase in township history, and some people are still not back in their homes. The ratable decrease was followed by a municipal reassessment that made for some very upset taxpayers. Enter the Democratic Party that captured two seats and an opportunity of taking control of the longstanding Republican committee. 2016 produced a year of political confrontation, unsubstantiated accusations of systemic corruption and fake news.
In an effort to put all this behind him, Gormley said his first goal is to work toward returning residents to their homes by establishing a Community Advisory Board so that representatives from all sections of the township can meet once a month and share ideas to bring us together as a community and, if successful, maybe make Little Egg great again.
