There was a bit of a shock. But now that the dust has settled a bit I think everyone will calm down and do what has to be done.<quoted text>
Are you saying, there will be no appeal and your going to allow this judge just trample on citizens right to petition? Or, is the contribution, for legal fees to continue the appeal? If any of the 41 just wants to bail out, they should at least wait until they get a ruling from the ACLU - see what they got. I believe (not sure) the 41 has 30-days to make a decision.
I count 5 active forums since the judge did his thing the other day. I could not help to notice, some folks say the 41 should pay because they were unhappy with what the board did back in January. So are they saying, only happy citizens circulate petitions to oust board members?
I bet after the ruling the other day, it must have been the worst day of their lives. But as time goes along - with front page coverage from law experts- and the many people outside of Gloucester who has an interest, now,- I bet there feeling a little better. That judge was totally out of line and in my view, he is unfit to sit in judgment of others.
But, no, it was by far WAS NOT the worst day of my life. Loosing a child is much worse.$2000 is NOTHING. If it has to be paid, oh well. But it won't be paid without a fight.
The donations will be used to pay the sanctions if needed or for the ones that don't want to fight...and legal fees if necessary. If not, any "leftovers" will go to a very good cause within Gloucester County.
