After Covid I'm a big fan of TLS! The amount of unconfirmed garbage being reported by others was overwhelming and scary!
Like all the antivaxxer articles?

TLS is the most professional site that covers Lakewood, with the most connections. However, he has serious allegiances and will often report one side of the story. (Loves the police. Used to love the vaad, but not as devoted anymore, since an incident a year or two ago).
If you are familiar with the background of what goes on, you can gain a lot from the site, but you need a good counterbalance. I think Hefkervelt is a good counterbalance. Very unprofessionally set up, but a treasure trove of information, and he seems to be aligned with everyone TLS is not. Hefkervelt actually will quote almost every other media outlet, but I have never seen him quote TLS. If you check both sites, you can usually get a decent picture of what's going on.

Both of my parents cars are from him, we've leased from him over 4 times. He's extremely honest and would go way out of his way if any hiccups come up (our experience was a huge hiccup when returning our previous lease from a different company).

That's besides for the corruption TLS is involved in, like the billboard fiasco.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If I were to start a thread about TLS, which board should I put it in?

I think oversight of TLS is warranted at this point.

Whichever board the TBL thread is in, alternatively you can just hijack the TBL thread.

I would recommend not starting a TLS thread. It will probably spin into a lot of Lashon Harah, and anything that needs to be said can be said in this thread, or in "the future of Lakewood" thread.
Whichever board the TBL thread is in, alternatively you can just hijack the TBL thread.
That thread no longer exists, IINM.

is this the only why to reach the mayor? AskTheMayor@thelakewoodscoop.com  is there another email with gov domain?
Don't waste your time. Almost every question/suggestion in that column is easy to fix/address (they only print the easy ones, duh) , yet almost none of them actually get done.

Almost every response goes like this "I will reach out to the police chief/DPW/traffic & safety to look into the matter"

They should do a follow up a column of all the "ask the mayor" questions from the past year, and post the outcomes of all the suggestions and questions that the mayor was going to "ask the chief to look in to" etc.
