I had to smile when I read the Gloucester City News artilce on the front page. "Gloucester City Planning Board nixes bail bond office." Mr. Jeffrey Baron, [office in Voorhees NJ] representing the city business association stated the presence of a bail bonds office would bring a criminal element along with their families into the city.
I would like to inform Mr. Baron that the criminal element and their families, live, breath and rent in our fair city. The criminal element and their family visit all the lawyers in Gloucester City. The criminal element and families are at city hall on Monmouth Street every Tuesday.
Should we lock down the city on court day?
All I see in this town are empty store fronts.
This man wants to establish a legitimate business in our town that would produce rateables, which puts money in the city coffer. It also seems like he is trying to create a job or two for the city.
Well Mr. Baron, Esquire, your worried about the criminal element and their families, well forget about it, that horse left the barn a long time ago.
P.S MY RESERVATION FOR OTT’S RESTAURANT ON THE WATERFRONT IS STILL ON HOLD!!!!
ROBERT J. HAGAN, JR. Resident of Gloucester City.
