[The following statement was submitted to TLS by the LAC. The views expresses are solely those of the LAC] This Tuesday, November 8th, is Election Day. The LAC is proud to endorse our good friend and strong advocate, Mr. Steven Langert for Township Committee.
Steve has shown over the last 3 years that fiscal responsibility is not just a dream but a reality. He has shown that those who doubted whether taxes can ever come down were wrong. He has stood up for what is right, no matter who it was that disagreed with him. Steve is a man of integrity and responsibility. Without Mr. Langert, our taxes would have been 10% higher than what they are today.
The LAC would like to give a lending hand of support to our good friend and ally, Mr. Hal Halverson. Hal joined us in our early quest for fiscal control by joining with the LAC and chairing the first ever Township Budget Committee in 2009. That Committee is credited with bringing most of the ideas which eventually led to reigning in our runaway taxes and those who ran the Township Budget. Hal would be a great asset to the Township Committee.
The LAC would also like to give a lending hand of support to Mr. Ray Coles who has been an early friend of the LAC. It was Mr. Coles who fought for and delivered equal services to all the developments in Lakewood. He corrected a long standing injustice and we salute him for that. Mr. Coles is a respectable candidate who will be there to help our Kehilla whenever he is needed.
The LAC, while committed to electing candidates with a strong background of fiscal responsibility, does not tell anyone who to vote for. Our endorsement is solely a reflection on which candidate will make prudent decisions with our tax dollars. Each Yochid can make his own decision about whether or not this issue is of importance.
