Forgive my auto correct...it is "implying", not "applying".

Templin...Do you read the articles that you comment on or just try and make it about your own selfish agenda. The article said "The resolution comes at a time when the township is preparing for another application to Sustainable Jersey."

Why have we not seen or heard from any of your "professional" supporters? Is your group of "Politics with an Attitude" supporters that organized that only you are their spokesman? Where were these supporters during the Committee meetings? Where are their comments on these posts? You calling me a weirdo and Farmer Boy is just another example of distracting when you are proven to be a liar. As stated time and time again, as long as you post lies and accusations, I post truths. You go away, I go away... Its just that simple!

Richard and Dave - how about we try and find some common ground. We can even do it over dinner - which I will spring for in Morristown, Madison or Chatham. The world would be just a bit better if we could all get along in some way - even the slightest way. You both are very passionate about your positions, which is admirable, but finding a bit of common ground might be a good thing.

When did I ever call a person a racist, nobody, hack or coward? I ask that you please post the link (your good at that!) that backs up your accusation. This is a typical Templin slanderous accusation made to distract. Let me guess… you want us to visit www.savegreenvillage.com to find out when I called these people names. Are you sure you are reading MY posts? You do know the name at the top right of the post, just above the time and date, is the name of the person making the comment, right? Just double check next time your reading something, it sounds like you may be reading your own posts. More lies and accusations....
