The District announced, “The Lakewood Board of Education has “polled” its members in advance of its upcoming Board meeting. At this time, the Board has voted to discontinue any advertising with the Asbury Park Press (APP) as well as any interactions with the APP. Effective immediately, the New Jersey Star Ledger will replace the APP as the Board approved media, along with continuing with The Lakewood Scoop. More to Follow.”
The announcement comes after sources told TLS the Lakewood Township has cut advertising ties with the paper.
Since the story broke, the APP has come under fire from local and state officials, as well as from Congressman Smith, the ADL, and Governor Murphy.
