  1. A 350 increase from last year?

    April 2010 elected members please explain you must answer the public after we voted you in on promises of no higher taxes!!

  2. Are you just looking to pick a fight?! If you would have been following along you would have realized that it was the 2011 members along with the ousted members who voted for the max increase under the new cap. It was Chesky Seitler who was challanged to come up with last minute heroics to crush the proposed inflated budget which he did!! My god!!!!

  3. the township committee did nothing,

    all the did was calculate what would be saved by replacing inzulbuch

    thank hertz for this cut,

    the township committee saved nothing

  4. I say the BOE did a fine job. Mr Silver and his assc are our for our good. I hate to imagine what would of been if they did not get reelected.

  5. Lets get real. The former BOE constructed the current budget, but at the last minute, Chesky Seitler saved the day with appropriate cuts. The former BOE then approved the amended budget to be presented to the voters.

    Lakewood voters then overwhelmingly rejected the budget, which ultimately went before the Lakewood Township Committee for final suggested amendments.

    The Township Committee proposed an additional $150 k reduction in the budget, and the new BOE approved that version of the budget,

    The School District is in deep trouble, and all students are and will continue to be affected until a remedy is found and implemented.

    In the mean time, the district has attracted the attention of all parties that can help, The new BOE is making good quality decisions, and doing the right thing to be fair and transparent through communicating with the residents of Lakewood Township.

    BOE president, Carl Fink is the man for the job, and he has the support of a quality BOE.

    The issue is to stabilize the district, improve administration, improve academics, improve attendance, improve the graduation rate, negotiate a vocational school in Lakewood, negotiate with teachers and other district workers.

    Then invite all stakeholders that are ready, willing, and able to help with the process to do what they can to support positive change in the district.

    This will improve the Lakewood School District.
