As a Lakewood resident I am not seeing it. I hope the Asbury Park Press will tell the whole story of a bankrupt town with a 50 % dropout rate and major traffic issues and low tax revenue due to many tax exempt situations that exist. Not to mention all the social program fraud that is going on. I doubt any of this will be in the story. Some one used the term untouchables. They should reference that in the story as well. It is easy to claim how good everything is what you are not paying for anything. I would like the author to put some numbers in his article as to the town finances. I doubt he or she will do any homework on this point.

There must be something in the water in Lakewood. The town is BROKE !!! What constitutes a boomtown? What criteria is being used to make this statement? I hope my town does not become a boomtown like Lakewood. If it does that means we will be rampant with tax evasion,poor education system and no controls on tax free construction and a Mayor asleep at the switch. Glad I live in north Jersey. The surrounding towns of Lakewood will be in the same boat in a few years.
