When I read that this Mayor wants to give these stores a 25 year Tax Abatement, I fell on the floor with frustration.  How can that be when Gloucester Township has the highest property tax.  I left and moved to Delaware last year.  This is a disgrace.  how could anyone want to live in a township that is so poorly operated with a Mayor and council giving out a 25 year tax abatement.  This is going to fall on all the home owners. I read a letter written by a man who was totally right about what he said to Mayor Mayer

All the buzz this week in town has been about the newly proposed Gloucester Premium Outlets to be located directly off the newly constructed exit of Route 42 near the Camden County Community College. I, in fact, attended the Tuesday evening, 23 July 2013, Planning Board meeting where the signage, lighting, and sidewalk access was discussed and approved. At that meeting I asked whether there were going to be any incentives offered to the developers of the outlet project. I do not believe I was given a straight answer to my question. . [continued below]....


At first my question about incentives was met with incredulity as if no one understood what I was talking about or believed what I was asking. When I tried to clarify and defined incentives as things such as tax abatements, again, it seemed like I was speaking in a foreign language and I was eventually told that nothing like that had been discussed yet and would have to be taken up later if the developers desired to pursue such a path.

Believe me, if I were investing a ton of money in a project such as the Gloucester Premium Outlets I would want to know beforehand what all the details were down to the last penny and that would include information about incentives. No shrewd business person would do otherwise.

So, two days later the Gloucester Township Patch publishes a story that states “Mayor David Mayer said this week Gloucester Township is considering offering the developers of Gloucester Premium Outlet a payment in lieu of taxes, or PILOT, agreement.” 
I have never heard one township resident say they thought their tax burden was fair yet if this deal goes through with a tax abatement, and I can’t see how it will fly without one, are we to be asked to bear yet another burden on our shoulders?

Mr. Mayor, tell us why we need an outlet mall, enticed by a 25-year tax abatement, offering low-end sales jobs, in our township when we can’t populate the store fronts we have now and the stores we do have can’t draw enough patrons to stay open.

This Mayor holds many jobs.  He's a full time Mayor earning $55,000 and he is a Full time Lobbiest for Comcast which he's got to be earning into the $100,000's and the township that he is the Mayor in has a 15 year contract with Comcast, how coincidental is that? Only in New Jersey.  I read that since he is a full time Mayor and a Full time Lobbiest for Comcast and other jobs he holds, he is in Violation of the Faulkner Act.  Yet he continues to do what he does and nobody in the legal courts in New Jersey seem to care.  Someone said his secretary is getting $55,000 a year and she is also an Assemblywoman earning $49,000 a year.  Only in New Jersey does this stuff exsist.
