On the Record – The Borough Alters My Meeting Minutes

Once Again, No One Listened to Us

Like most local towns, the Borough of Sea Bright provides a platform for public speaking opportunities at its regular scheduled town meetings. The purpose of our town meetings is to aid in allowing our residents to express themselves, be heard and be quoted accurately. Therefore, you can imagine my utter shock and dismay, upon reading the fabrication and twisting of what I said during a meeting. On June 5th, we stood up at our town council meeting and expressed our many concerns. Again, no one listened to us. They printed the following misrepresentation:

The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest.

Thomas Jefferson
