Ed Kline to Chair McCullough, Amodeo, Polistina Campaign
Atlantic County Republicans | News & Press Releases Atlantic County Republicans Ed Kline to Chair McCullough, Amodeo, Polistina Campaign J. Edward Kline, former mayor of Brigantine and three-term member of the General Assembly, will be chairman of the campaign of Republican State Sen. Kline, a resident of Margate, is co-owner and president of Kline Construction Co., Inc., in Galloway Township, a family owned business since 1945. "Ed Kline has had a long and distinguished career in public life in Atlantic County," McCullough said. "New Jersey and Atlantic County have a great deal at stake in this year's election," Kline said. "We have seen a state government run amok for the past five years, raising taxes, piling debt atop debt and mortgaging our future, turning its back on the hard working middle class by doing nothing to reduce property taxes and drowning in a sea of public corruption that has turned New Jersey into a national joke." "When state government --- a $33 billion a year business --- is this badly managed, it's time to change the management," Kline said. Kline served as mayor of Brigantine from 1981 until 1989 and as a member of the General Assembly from 1984 to 1990. He is active in a host of civic and charitable organizations and has been honored on numerous occasions with awards recognizing his service.

BRIGANTINE, N.J. - In what Mayor J. Edward Kline acknowledged was a referendum on his leadership, voters Tuesday in this island town north of Atlantic City junked the commission form of municipal government for a city council system.
The final vote was 1,866 to 1,818. Kline, who also lost a bid for a third term in the Assembly on Tuesday, had told voters: "If you want to vote me out of office, vote me out of office, but don't change the form of government. He had not been up for local election. Kline had come under intense criticism in July for arranging for the city to pay $1.5 million for land partly owned by former Mayor John Rogge. There were claims of favoritism in zoning approvals and building code enforcement, and complaints that when residents asked Kline about council votes, he replied with personal attacks. Kline also ordered that anyone seeking public records make a written request. Kline said, "I have to take a long, hard look" at whether to run. However, Brigantine Mayor Edward Kline, an opponent of the change, contends that the present form of government "has been effective. He has stated repeatedly throughout the controversy, "Vote us out of office if you want, but don't change the form of government." Under the present three-member commission form, the mayor is a member of the commission who is selected by his fellow commissioners. Kline also suggested that many of the signatures presented may be those of summer residents who live elsewhere. His application for rezoning last August spurred his successor, J. Edward Kline, into action. Kline, raising the specter of excessive development, said the city must move quickly. He appeared at a zoning hearing and announced that the city would buy the land, halting the proceedings and leaving unanswered the question of whether the zoning change would have been approved. By May, the city was poised to authorize bonds to buy the land immediately for $1.58 million and seek reimbursement later from Green Acres, the state's open-space land fund. Kline urged quick action even though Green Acres officials had written the city a cautionary letter, advising that the state would reimburse only for what it considered the fair market value, and that if its appraisal was less than the purchase price, Brigantine taxpayers would have to pay the difference. Green Acres has yet to do its own appraisal. Kline had agreed that the city would pay $1.58 million after appraisals were done for Rogge and for the city, and both appraisals set slightly higher values than that. Knowing the history of Rogge and the land, when the bond and land-purchase ordinances were introduced last month, two homeowners rose to ask Kline why the rush. They also questioned whether Rogge had clear title, whether city maps had been altered improperly, and whether Kline was looking out for the interests of taxpayers. Kline thanked the homeowners, Madelyn Evans and Jeanne Behr, for their comments but said that the city had to act fast, or Rogge would sell to a developer. Kline tabled his measure. Kline promised to look into the matter of the deletion. The residents are angry that Kline tried to rush the deal through, that he had refused to answer some questions at commission meetings, that he had failed to make all records available, and that, as it now stands, the price of the land represents $150 per resident, based on the official population estimate of 10,000. The anger has not abated. At a commission meeting, two women complained that Kline was engaging in belittling and personal attacks on those who inquire about the deal, saying they were "misinformed" and "spreading rumors. Relations between commissioners and questioners deteriorated even further when Commissioner Robert J. Shipley addressed one woman in the audience as "sweetheart." Kline has tried to shut off some of this growing furor by mandating a new policy: Public records now may be examined only when residents make appointments in advance. Kline, in interviews and public meetings, continues to characterize the nearly $1.6 million price as "a real bargain." And he has repeatedly said that Rogge has "an absolute right" to build 10 duplexes on the property, which justifies a price of up to $2 million. Both the Rogge and city appraisals assume that all government approvals required to build 20 housing units have already been obtained, and they do not take into account the impact of Gov. Kean's emergency order of Oct. 3 regulating all waterfront development. But city records, interviews with real estate agents and even Rogge's remarks in an interview do not support Kline's "absolute right" statements. When residents at a meeting noted that Rogge would need a variety of variances and permits to build housing - the paper work that Kline's friend Drake said would deter him from paying the asking price for the land - Kline backed away from his "absolute right" argument. But Kline insisted that a bank building a new branch would pay $1.6 million for the land "because of the view."
