Can you imagine a bunch of anti-progress rookies running the Township? Think â€œMuppets take Manhattanâ€ movie. With no business experience but bubbling with enthusiasm, looking to press a few buttons to see what happens, it will be a disaster waiting to happen.
Poor, ideological but uninformed decisions could wreak havoc on the Townshipâ€™s resources through missed opportunities.
The Township is, for all intents and purposes, a billion-dollar-plus operation, and has to be run like one. If a business slows down and brings in less money than it spends, the owners (in this case, the tax payers) suffer a loss and have to make up the difference.
Itâ€™s interesting to note that the original reason that anti-progress, eco-green candidates decided to run was to curb development.
Realizing they canâ€™t get elected that way, they are disguising their platform word strategy. They are now saying they are not against development, and to trust them to manage it better.
Really? Talk is cheap.
Their actions would be regressive, resulting in long-time debt to the residents.
Do we want to risk going through four years of costly mistakes? I donâ€™t!
