Submitted by ’60 Year Brigantine Resident’….
I certainly do remember twice weekly trash pickup that was before the politicians felt the need to line their pockets instead of providing services for their constituents.
There is entirely too much catering to the wants and needs of city employees and too little care and concern for the needs of the taxpayers…As my name states, I have lived here for 60 years and things are (VERY BADLY) out of control in favor of the city workers and against the taxpayers.
Although I am one of the 30% ( full time resident ) I’m being forced out of this town because of the outrageous wages and benefits being paid to the favored few.
DEMS please help us–the REAL REPUBLICANS (who cared about their constituents) are deceased and we are at the mercy of those who only care about their own wealth and the well being of their friends and relatives. Something has to give as it is sad that a lifelong resident must leave this island because taxes are so high just to pay these WAY OVER-INFLATED SALARIES.
But this is not about me…this is about a crazed culture of overpaid salaries and benefits that need to be curtailed.
Yes, we lifelong residents understand that things have changed and the new/rich residents are taking over and so we must leave but…it does NOT have to be this way IF the council takes a realistic look at the situation as it now stands in Brigantine.
