To the Editor:
I understand that being a member of the Scotch Plains Township Council can be time consuming and in many instances, a thankless job. While I do not begrudge these elected officials a modest stipend for their service to the community, I am thoroughly outraged that Councilman Kevin Glover takes $25,000 worth of health benefits for him and his family from the Township.
The fact he has been doing this since he was first elected means that his family has received well over $100,000 of benefits from the taxpayers of Scotch Plains.
Mr. Glover has consistently proclaimed that “We can do better” when it comes to our municipal budget. Well, we can; and we can start with Councilman Glover.
I call on the Councilman to relinquish his taxpayer funded health benefits, reimburse us for what it has cost us over the years or instead resign from the Township Council immediately.
