She’s worried that bathing suits will cause the loss of thier classy image.
A former councilwoman worries that skimpy clothing along the boardwalk in her Jersey Shore city is threatening its “classy” image, so she wants a crackdown on bathing suits.
It turns out that a decades-old ordinance bans bathing attire on Asbury Park’s boardwalk “or the public walks adjacent thereto,” the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Local Republican chairwoman Louise Murray, 74, a city councilwoman from 1997 to 2001, told the newspaper that she recalls when women wore dresses as they strolled the boardwalk. She said she knows times have changed but still thinks enforcing the bathing suit ban is a good idea.
