  1. Finally, a credible, real candidate. Not just another opportunist or die-hard lackey. Thanks for running. Please team-up with the other independent, credible candidates, Yoni Silver and Joel Schwartz. Together, the three of you can make the desperately needed improvements.

  2. I am sure people in Lakewood will view Lee as over qualified. It’s about time Lakewood is drawing quality people who will make a difference.

  3. The BOE has to change, members who are re-running need to be held accountable for all the bad initatives/votes they made over the last decade. The public schools are falling apart in which they did nothing to help. Now the board is being asked to approve voting hours on April 17th between 2 to 9pm. I say no, the hours should be 10 am to 6pm.

  4. My vote is for Johnson, he is a great young leader who knows first hand what is going on in Lakewood school and I think would have great ideas on how to improve the system.

  5. In answer to the statement above how Irene voted when it came up the previously, the first thing that came to my mind after dwelling on the subject, I felt that moving the election to November, there would be a
    saving of about 30,000, according to reports, but on second thought, moving from April to November would deprive the voters from having a say on the budget, and yes, I was encouraged by family & friends not to support the move, but after much thought, I changed my vote to “yes”
    for the move, so there!
