Communities hire Jim Florio to cut their property taxes

Residents of Strathmore and Whale Beach want to secede from Upper Township and join Sea Isle City, and have hired former Gov. Jim Florio to help them do it. The two Cape May county communities were rejected by the Upper Township Planning Board earlier this month, and the Council rejected them this week. Florio is a partner at a politically active North Jersey firm. Local residents think they can reduce their tax bill through secession.
