Kintzing Willing to Serve Another Term on Planning Board

The planning board chairman's term expires at the end of 2012, just a couple weeks before a scheduled court date on Jan. 15.

Planning board chairman Scott Kintzing said that he is willing to continue as West Deptford's planning board chairman after his term expires at the end of 2012, despite a pending lewdness charge.

Kintzing has stated that he would love to continue to serve on the planning board after the board met for the final time this year on Dec. 18. 

“If I am asked to serve again, I would absolutely accept,” Kintzing said.

after allegedly stripping naked outside of Oakview Elementary School following a basketball game on Oct. 23. He is scheduled to go to court on Jan. 15.

The Dec. 18 planning board meeting was the first once since May and likewise the first once since the incident happened. At the end of the meeting, Kintzing was thanked by various board members for his 31 years of service.

“I enjoy serving the township, I do this for the community,” said Kintzing after the meeting. “You don't get paid; in 31 years, I've never made a dime.”

There was no mention of the Oct. 23 incident by any officials or the public at the meeting. Kintzing also did not talk about the incident. Instead he focused on the current state of West Deptford development and how the township needs to make a concerted effort to promote development.

“I still think our town has a lot to offer from a planning and developmental perspective,” he said.

Kintzing acknowledged that he won't be on the board forever and did say that it's always good to have new faces get more involved. However, his top concern is the well-being of West Deptford and that is why he wouldn't hesitate if asked to be on the board again, he said. Planning board members are appointed by the township committee, upon recommendation of the mayor.

“I do think that, sometimes, you need to step in, step up and then step out,” he said. “But I just hope we have enough experienced folks who can run the planning affairs of the town effectively.”

Just like to qoute your Patch article of Nov. 19th. "after taking part in a basketball game" "A female school custodian witnessed Kintzing changing his clothes outside the back of the school after the game."" No children were present at the time of the incident" "There were 15 guys playing basketball that night." I wouldn't want the people that are reading this latest article(above) to get the wrong ideas because all this new article says is " stripping naked outside of Oakview Elementary School following a basketball game on Oct. 23" some readers who do not know how to click on the link to take them to the old article might this Mr. Kintzing was doing a strip act after a kid's basketball game.

I would vote to put Wayne Klutz on the Planning Board.
Madeline Fucci December 27, 2012 at 10:08 PM
How effective could a Planning Board be if they only met twice during 2012 to conduct business?
Richard H. Forte December 27, 2012 at 10:56 PM
It also failed to state that the female custodian testified she never confronted him as previously reported and that he was never naked on camera. Rather it should have reported that the custodian went to her friend/neighbor Dennis Forte, the republican chairman, who went to his republican pal on school board Chris Strano to help drag Mr Kintzing's name through the mud. This was a despicable act and reached a new low in West Deptford politics.
Wayne Klotz December 27, 2012 at 11:39 PM
Get real, you two clowns!!! As far as Mr.Kintzing getting appointed to planning board, I urge the mayor to reapoint him. At least we will have a law abiding citizen on the board then the gentleman you have now! That name is B.M. Did I open the can of truth again?!!!
T Cassiano December 27, 2012 at 11:58 PM
if it was anyone one else they would have been tarred and feathered. he got caught it was wrong did the crime do the time.he isn't any better than anyone else.since there were facilities on the inside that he could have changed. it's history now but he shouldn't be on the planning board.his time is up.
Occupant December 28, 2012 at 11:19 AM
Wayne, My misinformed Democratic lackey, there is nobody with the initials of B.M. on the Planing board. What are you talking about?
Wayne Klotz December 28, 2012 at 05:43 PM
Misinformed occupant; I meant R.M. Get it now?
Michael McManamy December 29, 2012 at 12:59 AM
@ Ms. Fucci: Although the Planning Board only met twice I assure you they were effective meetings. There is more to the Planning Board than most people know. @ Mr. Klotz I'm not sure I understand your insinuation but let me ask you a few questions: As there are no BM or RM on the board are you talking about me MM? If so do tell of all my less than law abiding habits? Actually since 2001 how many Planning Board meetings have you attended? Also in what way do you volunteer time in West Deptford? Mr Klotz I truly appreciate that you have the testicular fortitude to attach your name to your post but this time your wrong! To the Patch, thanks for allowing people to libel the good people of the West Deptford Planning board, you I believe have editing power on the comment section and decided not to exercise it here! Michael McManamy West Deptford Planning Vice Chairperson
Madeline Fucci December 29, 2012 at 03:37 AM
Would you please enlighten me Mr. McManamy as to what were the results and/or accomplishments that resulted from the two meetings of the Planning Board? I'm sure that the people truly interested in this town and its overall welfare and viability would welcome knowing what was accomplished.n
Madeline Fucci December 29, 2012 at 02:58 PM
Just wondering why my post was removed especially since Mr. Mc Manamy seemed to take umbrage with my comment. Asking what specifically was accomplished seems like a legitimate question.
Michael McManamy December 29, 2012 at 04:57 PM
@ Ms. Fucci-Although you are correct 2012 was a slow year for the Planning Board. It is a board that is tremendously driven by the market and mostly ignored by the public. Myself and the other members are not paid and do this for the betterment of the town. I am glad that you care enough to comment and have no problem with what you said was just answering your question. There is an upcoming meeting in January, why don't you attend or better yet reach out to the mayor and look into becoming a member. MM
Occupant December 29, 2012 at 05:51 PM
Madeline, I've been following the posts and yours are all there.
Madeline Fucci December 29, 2012 at 06:12 PM
Mr McManamy, I am presently on the Housing Board and believe I am being considered for serving on the Zoning Board. If that does not work out, perhaps I will take you up on your suggestion.
Proud D December 29, 2012 at 10:10 PM
Patch, why are you ignoring the involvement of Denny Forte, Strano and the Mayor in this matter? The three of them being involved is the worst kept secret in West Deptford. I, for one, think the the Mayor, School Board President and Chairman of the WD Republican Party exerting pressure on the police to bring charges is news.
XXX December 30, 2012 at 04:43 AM
Patch why do you allow proud d inflict garbage on this blog.typical demo. D stand stand for DIMWIT. The camera actually showed him naked.Kintzing name should be draged thru the mud,cesspool,swamp,bogs and pig slop because he isn't any better than you or me. Oh bubba be gental.
R Kramer December 30, 2012 at 03:16 PM
Patch why do you continue posting comments by proud d.just goes to show you the patch will do anything for the democrats.she is well misinformed and lies all the time.
Wayne Klotz December 30, 2012 at 08:49 PM
Michael, I did not refer to you! Your friends know whom I am referring to, not you sir!!0
Larry Bridgestone December 31, 2012 at 04:57 PM
this is for Michael, Wayne Klotz put foot in mouth.that is a libel comment he made he could have been referring to you.Wayne I's advise you to think before you type. Loose lips sink ships
Mikesfriend December 31, 2012 at 05:53 PM
I think I am his friend wayne and I have no clue who you are talking about........be a man and tell us what this no law abiding citizen hs done? you mean the dog thing that no one was ever charged with? You are a freaking loser
Maurice Rivers January 02, 2013 at 02:57 AM
In two weeks this idiot who claims to be and by others an upstanding citizen of this community will be going to trial. I know it's not a crime that if convicted will serve 10 years with chance of parole in 3. I think just being caught and the whole town knows about is good enough punishment because whom ever he meets,that person can say AREN'T YOU THE GUY THAT WAS NAKED BEHIND OAK VIEW SCHOOL. Also for him to considering running for another term on the planning board,that would be inappropiate to say the least. HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone that comes on here ( all 15 of you ), New year------- new mayor----new comments two party system must end.
