EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – There are a lot of things in Atlantic County that need to be uncovered, and the local newspaper should do more investigative reporting, about a dozen people told The Press of Atlantic City‘s editors Thursday evening at a community forum held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.
And they shared plenty of ideas that would keep reporters busy for months.
“You’ve got some really top-notch writers,” said Joel Fogel, of Somers Point. He said he would like to see more “in-depth” reporting, rather than having to see documentaries such as “Waiting for Superman” for serious coverage of an issue.
Janis Hetrick, of the Scullville section of Egg Harbor Township, agreed.
“There’s so much that could be investigated,” Hetrick said. She said the paper should expose, by name, politicians who exploit the system by working part time at a low-paid elective office for many years, and finish their careers with a few years in a high-paying appointed position in order to assure themselves a good pension in retirement.
