  1. If the boe cut taxes and fire district cut taxes why cant the township cut a little taxes also?????? We want cuts WE DONT WANT A FLAT BUDGET!!! STEVE WE DESERVE MORE !!!

  2. Good luck Steve-may you continue on the right path. Keep up the great work!

    Good luck to you Hal-you seem like a real mentch and we’re rooting for you too!

  3. Steve
    This town owes you a tremendous debt of gratitude. For years upon years all we saw was more and more spending. For the first time actual spending went down last year. If people would understand what an accomplishment that is, everyone would vote for you in a second

  4. Let’s not forget that the boe is getting an additional 1.5 million dollars from the state this year while the township is getting nothing. I would hope that with all that additional aid that we would get at least that much in tax relief from the boe? Are we?

  5. I don’t know where all the tax $$ is going. But it seems that Steve is really working very hard to bring tax cuts & transparency to the people. Hatzlochah , Steve – keep going !! We need you !!

  6. the one way we can cut more taxes quickly is to rethink the bussing. Lets be honest, 22 Million dollars will help all our tax bills

  7. no one knows till u r in the here how much we could really cut. in coventry square they said look at the books u cant cut. the new board members cut it 50 percent. they cant explain why they cant cut more, they just gotta keep cutting.

  8. The active adults that can continue to live in Lakewood must do everything in our power to help Hal Haverson win this election.

  9. The cutting of the fire budget was just a scam. All they did was get a bond to pay the difference. It didn’t actually cut the amount of money they used.

    In addition, they have over $3M in the bank and the person who manages the budget didn’t have an answer why they needed additional “revenue”. I’m sure they’ll come up with a project that they had in the works for a long time, in order to give a reason why they couldn’t use the $3M.

  10. Remember that the bus issue is not $22 million. The only issue is the courtesy busing issue which is very little of the $22 million so all those people who are screaming cut the busing – check the actual numbers first. FYI bussing means kissing – the correct spelling is busing.

  11. To all of you self righteous individuals going on and on about the spelling of the word “busing” using two ss “bussing” Please refer to a dictionary before you open your mouths (or in this case your keyboards) because all it does is show your ignorance. Both spellings are acceptable. If there are any doubters out there, PLeaase follow this link

  12. steve has my vote he did and will do a great job for our town , since he as been in office we have had no tax increase thank you steve
