This, and the second part below, will be my last post. Unless the voters inspire me otherwise on June 8th by voting against the BOE representatives. We’re going to need everybody to come out, the African-Americans, the Polish, the German, the Columbians, the Dominicans, the Jewish, the Cubans, the South Americans, the Italian, the Portuguese, the Brazilians, and so on and so forth, that make up our city. It’s a pity that there is no longer an impartial town newspaper to provide timely information, so maybe it would never have come to the city’s present state. Information only comes out around election time, and doesn’t always reach everyone. So instead you have to obtain your information from some anonymous troll such as I have been the past month, that you don’t know and can’t trust. The real trolls on the city forums are a real sorry and pathetic bunch. I’m no prude and no saint (I live in a cave and eat rodents that mistakenly enter), but they really are disgusting and sick, and they think it’s amusing. If these are the sort of individuals that support the EBOE, then you be the judge as to what the city will be like if they are allowed by the voters to continue with their agenda. It was their twisted posts that made me think that this may not be the appropriate medium for getting the truth out, and some other way should be developed, if possible, such as a Taxpayers Association.

I never said that City Hall was perfect, it is just not as blatantly imperfect as the organization and individuals associated with our elected BOE. I’ve never heard of the Mayor or any of the 8 of 9 council persons running any sort of business that could directly gain financially from their elected office via our tax dollars. That key players on the BOE own construction companies, real estate ventures,“non-profit” churches, and other city businesses, does not give the taxpayer a warm and fuzzy feeling about where our tax dollars are going. The good that all of the new school facilities has brought to our communities is negated by the circumstances that our tax dollars are used to benefit individuals politically and financially. They use the school budget to their advantage and to the children’s disadvantage by making most expenditures suit their agenda. They buy favors and sell or bestow positions which have as a prerequisite that the individual receiving the position support their agenda financially and politically. This all with our tax dollars. In building more schools, they build an empire of contributing loyalists and a voter base with the ultimate aim of taking over City Hall and really raking it in. This empire is built all with our tax dollars. If permitted to achieve that aim, then there will be no getting around them in any school or city matter, based upon the arrogance and disregard they’re known to display to qualms a parent might present at a BOE meeting. Although it may be beneficial, I will not name names or draw a family tree of the players and their roles, just know for now that those that support the BOE and their candidates and their agenda, either stand to gain from their agenda, or are uninformed, or just don’t like City Hall. Get informed and get out and vote. It just takes a few minutes, but the effects are long term and can make a difference. Don’t forget to bring a friend or two along. One government is enough to support and deal with, our city does not need, and cannot afford, two governments. Politics should remain in the political realm. It should not be allowed to continue and remain in our schools to the extent that it is. If a candidate wants to run for office, let them do it using their own money and contributions, not using the taxpayers re-funneled money, and the children’s money, and our school system as their own tools.
This does not only go on in our city, it goes on in towns all throughout NJ. I would recommend that anyone interested in seeing the bigger picture, go and watch “The Cartel” showing at the Rialto theatre in Westfield on June 2nd. Just Google “The Cartel Movie” and you can get information on how to attend.

I have been informed by a source that there will soon be massive lay-offs by the BOE of cafeteria workers and other non-union support staff. This is a tactic being executed in order to make it seem that as a result of the budget cuts, all of these individuals will lose their jobs. It is psychological warfare, so that those being laid-off will vote in favor of the school budget (and EBOE city council picks) when it comes back for a 2nd vote. It will be difficult to convince these workers and voters that their jobs are being eliminated as part of BOE strategy, but that their functions are necessary and they will need to be hired back regardless. It is a cruel and desperate scare tactic, whose bluff must be called. Tell the cafeteria workers and those threatened with lay-offs to say "Go ahead" and hold out until the BOE has no choice but to call them back! Don't let them EXTORT you into voting in their favor!
