  1. Please clarify that Mr. Schwartz is not running for Steve Langert’s seat. He is running for one of the two available slots in the Republican Primary. It is very possible that both he and Steve would be the top two vote getters in the primary and that the would be the Republican candidates in the general election.

  2. We need someone new in there. New people, new ideas. And quality of life is a serious issue. Who is he running against ?

  3. Yes they will, but first Joel has to be chosen to be the nominee. If Langert wins the primary with Joel, the general election will be very tricky.

  4. Having watched the proceedings of multiple BOE meetings I really believe Joel has what it takes to be a committeeman and is probably the most suited for the job.

  5. I agree with him that politicians should be held accountable. That’s why I’m holding him accountable for the current board of Ed budget fiasco.

  6. To #9.AE.
    Before you start pointing fingers at anyone,why not familiar yourself with reasons why Lakewood is facing a budget deficit. Lakewood’s population is growing by a staggering 8-10% yearly. The budgets must be capped at 2% yearly, leaving Lakewood in a 6-8% deficit just by default of the states 2% cap. This is why Lakewood is in a unique position, not by any action or lack thereof o any Board Member or administrator. I’m actually surprised that they were able hold down the fort this long by finding creative ways to cut costs and spend responsibly, given the growth rate in Lakewood over the past few years. Lakewood needs State intervention to help with this unique situation where our growth is by far larger than our spending cap. Our elected representative to the State, Bob Singer is the one who should have been on top of this issue along time ago, way before it came to this point.
