BOE Candidates Zlatkine And Seitler Meet With Residents Of The Enclave

boe candidates meet seniors(Photo of meeting) With the local School Board election coming up in 1 week from Tuesday, many residents are eager to hear what the candidates have to say and how they are going to change the direction of our BOE. Last night, the residents of the Enclave had the opportunity to hear from 2 candidates, Zlatkine and Seitler, who are running on a platform of fiscal responsibility and keeping a flat budget for this year. The third candidate of this block, Carl Fink, was unable to attend due to a broken leg. The questions were many and animated. The residents inquired exactly how the candidates were going to change the way things are run, how they will lower costs, and other questions. The candidates answers were simple and straight forward. There are many places that can be cut, all we need is people who are willing to look.

The candidates showed a drive and enthusiasm to be creative in finding ways to lower the tax burden. From enlisting help from Trenton in teacher union negotiating, to opening up bids to more than one company. From bringing in more competition to changing the mindset of the administration.

The residents gave a standing ovation at the end of the meeting, and many of them said they are going to support the block of 3 candidates for fiscal responsibility. As one resident put it “You guys are breath of fresh air, after 30 years of waiting”.

  1. I am glad to see they are building bridges between the two communities. I am fed up of people who pushed through the “smart growth” contrary to the peoples wishes just to service the few people who want it. I hope we can effect some type of cut to the overburdened taxpayers in Lakewood. The 3 have my vote and most probably the “Hamon am” will vote for them.

    hatzlacha rabbah!

  2. generalities are a first step. the BOE needs reform. there is definetely room for inprovement in this body and the only way to get it is that there are people there iwth their hearts and minds in the right places.
    Ithink the old crew that has been milking the community for so long has woken up to realize that the game is over. – ONce more people on the board concerned with fiscal responsisibiility the overseing powers will have no choice buut to change.

  3. Here is what will happen – The BOE will introduce a budget to the voters that will be WELL ABOVE the past budget. The voters will turn it down. Then it will go before the town fathers and they will lower it by what, maybe $5000, and then they will pass the budget. It happens every year the same way. You want the school budget to go WAY DOWN? Then cut out the courtesy for ALL STUDENTS that live within the state approved guidelines. Notice I said “ALL STUDENTS” – I am not showing favoritism. If ANY student lives within the state guidelines he/she can walk to school. That might also fight the “child obesity” the state is so worried about. Exercise is good.

  4. None of these guys have my vote. I have been going to the board meetings none stop for over a year and have never seen one of them there, so how do they know what goes on if they are NEVER in attendance.
    They don’t show up to meetings, so how they want to be on the board, are they going to be absentee members?

  5. Residents who are truly concerned should look at the amounts that are being spent on busing in the lakewood BOE budget. The user friendly budget is posted on the school website. The township of Barnegat is reducing their bussing bill, buy putting in sidewalks. They are saving 1/2 million. Lakewood needs to get that lline item under control. The school system is being held hostage to this big bill
