  1. You’re absolutely that 2nd homeowners are being taxed without representation. They should have the right to vote in Brigantine elections.

  2. If we could vote then the entire Jersey coast would lose their shirts. OCNJ & Wildwood have a great tax base because of the amusements & mega shopping but they still get over on the second homeowners.
    It’s the Jersey gig! And the primary residences & politicians are laughing all the way to the bank. We are trying to get off the island but real estate isn’t moving. And realtor.com predicts a 3% decline in the last quarter and next year.

  3. Former Brigowner

    We feel you, Chris. It took a long time for us to be fed up, and we lost a lot of equity because of it, but the sooner you can find someone willing to undergo this kind of treatment AND pay you the value of your home, he better off you will be. Good luck and be alert!

  4. The annual Brigantine Municipal Welfare recipient list. The retort to this is “taxes are on par with other neighboring towns” except that those neighboring towns do not pay 73% of the annual budget to city employees!
    I wonder how many on that list live in Brigantine?

  5. poor resident says: This is Guenthers legacy. A town that uses 65+% of its revenue for employee salaries cannot survive. The ever increasing tax burden will only serve to lower property values, drive out residents and cause more tax increases. Vote the bums out.
