Freeholders should stay mum | Letters

I appreciate that Charlie Bodenstab wants to protect the decisions that he and the other Freeholders came to in writing the charter, but it’s time that he shut up and let the Charter Review Commission do its work.

After all, the commission has no power to change anything. All they can do is make recommendations for changes and submit them to the voters, who will have the final say.
If and when the CRC does offer proposed amendments to the voters, Mr. Bodenstab will have a minimum of 90 days to make his views known to the voters, and I’m sure we can count on him to do so.
Until then, his job as Freeholder is long past, and it’s time for him to respect the decision the voters made in the people they elected to the CRC and let them do their work.
