LOCAL PERSPECTIVE: Letters to the Editor

“The Poet” It is sad to report the loss of a friend who was so devoted to Perth Amboy. Dioris Louis Arlequin, “the poet,” as he liked to be called, passed away at Raritan Bay Health Center last week. Louis was proud of his naval service and loved Perth Amboy. Much of his poetry had […]

Music, Not Politics My band, Mikell’s Plot, performed at the Perth Amboy Arts Festival in May. We were happy to participate in this community event and had a great time. However, just as we were setting up and about to begin, politicians Frank Pallone, Wilma Diaz, and Phil Murphy came up on stage and bashed the […]

Public Servants or Self-Servants After doing research on the salaries, benefits, pensions and other perks of certain employees, I’ve come to the conclusion that the term, “Public Servant” is merely a euphemism for self-servants. This does not apply to all cases, but when someone’s potential retirement income far exceeds what they made while working. There’s […]

Former Councilwoman Lisa Nanton Responds to Mayor Diaz’s Statement on Judge Francis’ Verdict We are happy that Judge Francis affirmed our right to hire an attorney to litigate the matter concerning the appointment of an Assistant Business Administrator.

TRUE Down to the Wire In a response to Michael J. Rusznak’s letter on April 12, 2017 “Heinous Crimes” and what was written is TRUE down to the wire. This has been going on in America for many years but most Americans don’t want to hear this. Here’s something more spooky – it’s called Child […]

Heinous Crimes In a recent letter, Mr. Perez wrote about two illegal immigrants raping a young girl in Rockville, Maryland. As disturbing and horrible as this is, we need also remember that we’ve had men who were Presidents raping slaves. Western settlers ravaged Indians. Servicemen in every war and conflict sexually violate women in the […]

Can Consolidation Cure High Property Taxes? There is an old saying “if it sounds too good to be true, it isn’t”. That’s because the proposal does not list its disadvantages, and most policies have trade-offs. The claim that consolidation of municipalities would result in “lower property taxes and improved services” sounds false, like a character in the […]

Sanctuary City??? Look at this: two male students from Rockville, Maryland High School named Henry Sanchez and Jose Montano who both came to the U.S. illegally, RAPED and SODOMIZED a 14-year-old girl in the high school restroom. So much for the SANCTUARY CITY that all those MAYOR’S were crying about, like in Perth Amboy, New […]

Wages or Taxes? Raising the minimum wage is a good idea but it would only apply to a percentage of wage earners. There is another solution that would apply to most people: raise the standard income tax deduction to $40,000 or more. This would benefit more people than an increased minimum wage alone. While the Federal […]

Raising the  Minimum Wage – Good or Bad? In Theory Raising the minimum wage to $12 or $15 an hour is a good idea. Yet those who are already earning $12 or $15 per hour probably won’t be satisfied to work for what is now the new minimum wage. They’ll want $18 or $20 an […]

A Day without Immigrants? On February 16th, Mayor Diaz led a protest march of illegal immigration supporters in Perth Amboy which shut down some businesses and all Taxis. This was an act of no compassion for the elderly, disabled and unlicensed residents or those without cars who rely on taxis to get to work, school, […]

In Response to Mayor’s Letter of February 8, 2017 After being elected for the third term Wilda Diaz vowed she wouldn’t seek, the Mayor also believes she doesn’t have to obey the laws of this state or the ordinances of this city.

Putting Perth Amboy First: In 2008, I raised my hand and took an oath to uphold the constitution and to put the City of Perth Amboy first. Those first few months were a very difficult time. The poor decisions and burden of one administration had nearly compromised the well-being of an entire City. But through hard […]
