I just emailed this to my office, and will send it around the office tommorrow.
I 'll pass it on to a few others also.

I know the tower has been closed for some time now, but I was unaware of the financial needs till you posted this

I was also shocked to see they were in trouble with funding, would be nice if the township, and county could help with the matching funds, until they raise the difference.

They tricked the City of Ft Myers into taking over the Edison Home here. There are a lot of taxpayers who are not that excited about it.

I am not suggesting the taxpayers pay for it just front the money needed, until they can raise the difference, It's amazing they don't have a fund set up that supports it.

They spent $9 million and got $4.2 back from revenues, contributions and grants.

NJ also has the Edison Museum in West Orange which has Federal jurisdiction I believe. And Edison's home in LLewellyn Park (West Orange). I've never heard of funding situations there?

That is the way I look at it, something worth preserving.
