James L. Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, wants to add the heliport to his property in New Jersey so that the family can bring in prospective cattle buyers to “enhance their farming business,” according to a January NJ.com article.
The neighbors don’t want the Johnsons to have a heliport because, well, who would be OK with their neighbor’s having a noisy helicopter bandying about in their super-fancy neighborhood?
Johnson has launched a single-family PR campaign to convince his neighbors, ostensibly, Hey, man … all I’m trying to do is travel to my property in a style that reflects how super rich I am.
He recently wrote a letter to the NJ.com editor:
To my neighbors in Tewksbury:
I would like to state my purpose for requesting a heliport in Tewksbury Township.
