After being approached by the Atlantic Highlands Republican candidates involved in this year's race, I have consented, on behalf of the newspaper, to being the sponsor of a League of Women Voters event that would seek a public debate by candidates in the borough.
Personally, I truly believe that both the Atlantic Highlands Democratic and Republican parties have fielded a very fine selection of candidates for this year's consideration by the voters. If every community were this fortunate, then Monmouth would be lucky.
I do hope that an event is able to be put together where the public gets to see these candidates on display, as the issues that confront the residents of the borough are important ones and deserve a great deal of consideration and due diligence. There will be more word on this in the days ahead.
