(The following is solely the view of the LAC (Lakewood Association Coalition). TLS does not necessarily endorse or agree with the political views of the association). THE LAC IS ASKING EVERYONE TO PLEASE COME OUT IN ONE STRONG VOICE TO VOTE FOR OUR STRONGEST SUPPORTERS ON THE COMMITTEE: MEIR LICHTENSTIEN AND MENASHE MILLER. The LAC is here to help the taxpayers of Lakewood get their voices heard. While we have been vocal in making some small but serious changes over the past year, it will take some more time to remove the waste from Lakewood’s spending. We have spent a lot of time researching all of the candidates for Township Committee and have come out strongly against the independent candidate.
Mr. Cunliffe (the independent candidate), throughout his many years as a township committeeman had a poor record on taxes and spending. He has diverted money from our roads and important infrastructure to pay for his pet projects. However, after extensive research into all of the current candidates, we feel that none of them will be able to significantly lower taxes on their own. Either it is because their philosophy is opposed to it as shown by their votes over the years, or by the fact that they are out-voted by the controlling factions in the administration. So this has turned into a matter of who will hurt the community and who will help us by continuing to try to work for the taxpayers.
Our Shluchim on the committee have come through for our Kehillah in many ways. They carry themselves with dignity and are Mekadesh Shem Shomayim every day. Nobody is perfect but they are committed to continuing to help us reach the point where taxes will be lowered and downtown is returned to its former glory.
There is serious opposition this year and we need to show that our kehillah will not just defeat them, but we will do it with a resounding majority. We need you to come out with one voice to protect YOUR interests and our right to live in peace without negative interference.
PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES AND GO OUT AND VOTE FOR MEIR AND MENASHE. DON’T RELY ON EVERYONE ELSE!
