  1. First on agenda integrity and honesty. Everything else will follow. Lakewood has never seen such a straightforward and hardworking individual such as our current Mayor. Good luch Isaac, YOU WILL NEED IT!!!!!!!

  2. Tent city, streets paved, pro-police, it is all irrelevant to this position. The lakewood mayor is not an administrator or chief executive. It is ony an honorific position. The whole committee makes policy.

  3. Ok let’s get down to work. Mr Ackerman start getting rid of tent city NOW, I don’t care how, but figure it out. You are employed by those who hired you. That’s us. Now get to work.

  4. Why hasn’t Ray Coles been made Mayor?
    Lakewood tax payers need to be able to vote for their Mayor instead of a handful of people doing it.

  5. When individuals get promoted,
    When positions of doctors are changed
    It can be just a title & not much more
    Where our respect for them remains unchanged!

    Because what’€™s a job title
    When it doesn’t fit the individual?

    Not with Mayor Akerman !
    Your Lakewood Township promotion,
    Only reflects…
    Your care and devotion!

    From across the ocean
    Wishing you continued success
    And only good luck-
    As you profess!

    Because honourable is a job title
    When it fits the individual!

  6. Good for you & good for lakewood!

    May Hashem grant you the ability to be a true shaliach & make a Kiddush hashem!

    Bracha Vihatzlacha bicol massai yadecha!

  7. Meir Lichenstein is a true Yid, and helps people out so many people each day, I’m sure that Mayor Akerman will join his team, and add so much transpiroty to Lakewood.

  8. I agree with number 15 lakewood should vote during elections for a new town mayor. Let the public choose and be more happy with the decision.

  9. First and foremost congratulations to our newly appointed mayor of Lakewood Isaac Akerman. I have always supported you as a committee member and I will continue to support you as mayor. Thank you committee members for putting your vote of confidence in Isaac. Congratulations to my long time friend Steven Langert for the landing the position of Deputy Mayor. On a personal note I thank the entire committee for putting your trust in me by extending my appointment on the zoning board of adjustments. I will continue to serve the people of Lakewood to the best of my ability.
    Thank you
    Joel Schwartz

  10. Congratulations Mayor Ackerman. Your integrity, fairness, and leadership is needed. Govern well! You have all the qualities of a great mayor.

  11. Good for you! Mayor Akerman, you will do great at your job with Hashem’s help, as you’ve been doing amazing till now. I just hope you don’t get pressure headaches as even I almost did reading all the other comments. If I was asked to sum up all the comments I would write: “Congratulations! Now you’d better make us all happy or else” oy.
