He must have eaten melaveh malkah on the plane.
now get back to work no time to rest, this town needs tons of work!
(a goods night sleep I’ll let you have but no more) treat lakewood like it were a war zone!
Welcome back, R’ Menash. Oh my, how we missed you !! Dudi B.
Who paid for all of the food?
R’ Menashe, you are our shliach tzibbur and emissary. We all owe as deep debt of grtitude to those that protect us and you fulfill it our behalf. Yasher koach!
The food was arranged and paid for by his close friends.
Mr. Miller, after looking at the pictures and seeing your beautiful family I could only imagine the dedication your entire family has for their support of you being overseas with the troops during a holiday season. God Bless you and your family.
Thank-gd you are back safely. I hold my breath everytime you go.
menashe we should send you to bet shemesh to help turn around the chilul hashem there and bring shalom to that area
welcome back!!!!!! We missed you.
Welcome back, Mayor Miller.
Now that the Mayor is back it should be safe if it snows 🙂
I’m always amazed by some of the stupid comments people post such as #4 and #12. Mayor Miller was away from home for several weeks serving his country and was away from his family and young children. Why would it matter who paid for the food.
Mr. Mayor (& Meir)
While you were respectfully serving the country I must inform you that there were not 1 but 2 accidents on 14th and Forest that I personally have heard the bangs from my house. Of which one was a bochur hit by a car (yes the noise was that loud). These accidents can be stopped with a simple traffic light. Yes it will sometimes be annoying for us but my Lakewood brethren are much more important.
While it is a honorable thing to serve the country please don’t forget us at home (your old neighborhood were you grew up) WE NEED A TRAFFIC LIGHT NOW!
I speak on behalf of all that live on the corner of 14th and Forest
P.S. Please contact me via the LKWD Scoop if you need.
No need to worry, the entire lunch reception was arranged and paid for by his close friends.
Welcome back sir! Keep making us proud!
Mr Conservative you usually have more class! Do the right thing and apologize for being cynical without being able to muster a pleasant comment.
It is amazing to me how the APP manage to write anything negative about Lakewood on their cover even if its trivial but won’t mention this story at all (beyond a possible blurb).
How many Mayors have gone abroad to serve on the military recently?
It is good that “close friends” were alerted and invited to attend the send-off and return of Mayor Miller. However, I believe that events such as this could be, and should be announced, so that any resident that wanted to attend, and wish the mayor best regards, could.
This looks too inside! Mayor Miller is the mayor of all Lakewood residents.
Meir amd Menashe take and return everyone’s call. Why don’t you just try calling them…………
Do you know where I can buy The Minyan Shelanu CHinese Auction ticket? & WHen is it?
Welcome back sir and Keep making us proud!
To Bill Hobdat,
He may be the mayor of all of Lakewood. However, it was his friends who threw the party. If you feel so close and concerned, then you should ALSO keep tabs on him and join the party!
PS You and I know that if it were to become an official ‘township party’ all hell will be let loose in regard to any criticism we can imagine.
Let the friends celebrate. If you feel like a friend – you should do so too.
By-the-way; When is your birthday? 😉
Hey Bill maybe the mayor didn’t want a giant public coming and going so it was only close friends.
To 23 Anon says – You could be right, but can you just imagine how nice it would have/could have been to be sent off and welcomed back by hundreds of Lakewood residents from all segments of the Township?
This was lost opportunity to do something good for the Mayor, the Township Image, and our Troops.
