Michele: Your agenda in subduing mine. You're venting your frustrations by posting your advice alongRead More with the negative undertones about the Mayor. If you feel strongly about what you have stated, thats fine with me but I request that you please don't surface it into this platform as tool for you to vent. I appreciate your advise but the negative elements about the Mayor need not be present especially when you are addressing me. I'm more than happy with way things are going for us and wish you the very best of luck with what you are trying to achieve, however, I'm not looking for a pat on my shoulder or a mention in a town calendar. Most everyone in this town knows who we are and what we bring to the table. If you need me to explain further to help you better understand my position, then come to my store and I'll do so otherwise best wishes.
Michele Guttenberger July 18, 2014 at 02:15 am
Yes, I do have frustrations with the Mayor since I have lived in this town for over 30 years and sawRead More a lot of great small businesses that I liked disappear in recent years. And the conversations that I had with them before they left had to do with taxes. Hopatcong wasn't budging to give them a break. I find it outrageous that the most wealthiest private business owner pays the lowest percentage in municipal taxes for their business properties but manages to get top billing in our Municipal Calendar for their charitable event. When you do the math you begin to realize the loss of commercial tax rateables from these properties gets passed on to our small businesses. The least our Mayor and Council can do is provide our small businesses the same perks in free publicity and brand recognition that they obligingly do for their favorite billionaire recreational business owners. It is more about them giving back to our small business owners who have been giving directly to our communities. My apologies for the rant on this happy and positive article. Hot dogs are not my favorite food but, I enjoy passing by your place with all the interesting signs and the interesting Hot dog eating group meet ups and I wish you continued success.
Rohan H. Shetty July 18, 2014 at 03:50 pm
Thank you for your candor. My assumption from your writing style/grammar, is that you are wellRead More educated, experienced and confident in politics. Your overall advice is appreciated, again, thanks for understanding my position.

Um baggy pants and wearing pants too low are 2 different things. People don't even wear "baggyRead More pants" anymore. These kids wear really tight pants that are too low. What a dumb topic to focus on anyway. I don't even know why I just made a comment about it.
