A recent post on the Oakland Township Sentinel website provides some insight into Supervisor Gonser’s thinking on a number of issues.
Supervisor Gonser sent a letter to Mr. Yager (the editor of the website) in response to a plea from Mr. Yager to do a better job of controlling personal attacks during Board meetings. Mr. Zale, the current chairperson of the Parks and Recreation Commission, has recently been very aggressive in ‘shutting down’ any attempt by citizens or Commission members from making personal attacks. Gonser’s letter is lengthy and touches on:
- His thoughts on his ‘legacy’ as Supervisor
- Why he ran for office
- His perspective on the reasons for the lack of progress within the Township
- His thoughts on our Township’s form of governance
- His vision of leadership
- Civility in our Township

Please read my comments in response to Mr. Gonser’s perspective on a number of items, in particular the specific events referenced in the ‘ethics’ response. These events were major factors in why the “Oakland Township Watcher” website has continued to monitor what goes on in our Township, and are all documented on this website.
