NO!! WE DON'T WANT THE DAMN PROJECT & YES WE WANT THE CITY COMMISSION TO START LISTENING TO US !!
Last year at this time our Gov. Chris Christie was telling Margate's voters they were stupid if they voted against his goal of imposing the AISPP ( Absecon Island Shore Protection Project) on us. I guess, were stupid because 65% of us ignored the Governor's threats to ignore us, if we voted against his plans. We thought it was pretty obvious then, that if we rejected the Governor's Project it would require some kind of legal defense to sustain our will in that vote. Well, at least it was obvious to most of us, but not everybody it turns out. So here we are again, a year later voting on essentially the same topic again. This time its supposedly to authorize the City of Margate to spend up to $200,000 to hire outside legal counsel in this matter. The truth is the Margate's Commission already has the power to authorize such a defense with just two votes. Obviously, that wasn't going to happen, because one of those two votes was stridently for the Beach Project from the beginning of all of this. Another is stridently against it and the third says he's against it, but that we can't win in court against the State. So, The one for the Project and the One against it (only if we don't have to fight to stay out) have decided that any defense against the State has to be ok again by the voters next Tues.
ITS A NON-BINDING VOTE AGAIN
Of course, like last year's vote this year's vote is also non-binding, which means the same two Commissioners who are putting the town through this again this year can just ignore the results again if they don't like them. So, why are we bothering to do this, you might wonder? Because, the one that says he against it but not if we have to fight, is hoping we'll say we want to give up and not spend anymore $$ fighting what he considers a hopeless cause. Makes you wonder what he and the one that wants it will do if we vote Yes we do want the city to fight? Doesn't matter, if your still against joining or allowing this Project to happen on Margate's beaches just come out and vote.
PLEASE VOTE ON NOV. 4TH - VOTE YES on Question No. #3 !!
