LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:

Gloucester City Council Candidate Jason Fanning Seeks Your Vote; "WE WILL WORK FOR YOU!"

Hello Gloucester City! I want to let you all get more familiar with me. Talking about one’s self is not always easy, but I feel it is important you are fully informed about your choices this election. I will try to keep this brief. While I consider being a Dad and little league coach my biggest responsibilities, I have professional successes that will be immensely useful to Gloucester City. My office walls are covered in framed achievements from throughout my life starting in high school. A high school who has a history of graduating doctors, astronauts, and a literal rocket scientist (He’s a good guy. I would know, he’s my brother). In 2004 I drove 1,000 miles from home to make a new home with $8,000 and everything I owned in a duffel bag. With that I built what is now the biggest company in my trade in South Jersey,...

Condo Association Endorses Jason Fanning for Gcity Council

Monmouth Condo Association Margate City, New Jersey Elected President to govern our association in 2018, Jason Fanning took on what could be described in one word “shambles”, and along with the Vice-President not only brought the association into compliance with regulations, he also oversaw improvements to the building that was beginning to become a bit of an eyesore. He simultaneously lowered annual costs by examining the budget and surgically removing portions that were wasteful or antiquated. As far as his quality of character, he is not only a pleasant and sociable neighbor, watching him engage with his son is nothing less than enjoyable. Jason Fanning approached us during our annual meeting for our endorsement for his campaign and we unanimously agreed. If you are looking to elect someone to your City Council who can guide a community into a new era in a budget friendly way, there is only one... Read more →
