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.”

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.
