  1. Larry Loigman is the most qualified candidate on many levels.

    Although I do not know him personally, his apparent professionalism, combined with his proven track record not to be beholden by ANY insider (you all know what I’m talking about) other than the overly strangled Lakewood Taxpayers – gives him my vote.

  2. Actually none of them should be running. The only one running and winning should be the parent of public school children. We have enough representation for non public and the senior community. Enough is Enough already. Public Schools aren’t and shouldn’t be run like corporations. If you want to run the non public schools like that, that is why you don’t have enough money to run them, & have had to close some of them. Enough with the demise of the Lakewood Public Schools.

  3. If friedman and greenspan think they don’t have to talk about the issues and they will get our vote they are wrong. I won’t vote for someone who doesn’t feel they need to come forward with their plan. They won’t get my vote.

  4. It is obvious that the LAC is endorsing Schmuckler Avrin and Tift. There have been no endorsments yet by any group other than a few individuals. Most endorsements come closer to the elections.

  5. Ira Rosenthal, you have my vote!!! I came out last night and was very impressed by your candor and professionalism. You will be an excellent addition to the BOE!

  6. I agree that we should all vote for Tracey Tift, as he represents the public school children. However, we all have three votes, and Larry Loigman should be on everyone’s ticket. For the third choice, I think it’s up for grabs.

  7. mandel seems to be the most intelligent and level headed voice. Seems that would be the best selection to me as an outsider!
