What I don't get with most of these meetings I watched, is why are people (excluding HH) pulling their punches? Acting as if the Committee is not complicit in the destruction of Lakewood? The fact is, that these guys were almost all on the committee that oversaw the destruction of Lakewood. The fact is, that investors are still buying properties assuming they will get the high density zoning to build. The fact is, that developers are still sending permit applications to CAFRA for Township owned properties. The fact is, they just requested County Line to be designated a redevelopment zone, in order to give their buddies tax abatement's.

The corruption is still alive and well. Coles may be watching his words, as he is up for re-election, but what is going to happen after the election?

There is no solution with this group. At least 3 of them need to resign or be booted out.
Maybe Coles won't run again after all the pressure...

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Someone needs to run against him. He will be easy to defeat, and it well send a shocking message to the town owners.

In the past everyone in Lakewood was apathetic. We had a victim mindset. Everyone assumed that the 'chosen' candidate was a shoo in and therefore:
A) No real candidates went up against them
B) The orthodox blindly followed the 'chosen' candidate for lack of better options
C) The non jewish seniors weren't motivated to vote since they knew the non-'chosen' candidate was just a ballot placeholder who was not going to win.

Even with all this, the committeemen sometimes won by relatively small margins

This victim mindset and apathy is what allowed our elections to be tightly controlled for many years.

That can all change. Once a good viable candidate comes forth - they can be presented as someone who will be non-partisan and have no alliance to the powers that be. The seniors will be motivated to come out in big numbers. The masses in orthodox  community who are fed up with the corruption will be motivated to get out the vote. The Lakewood community will show that those days of blindly following certain suggested candidates who have been on the committee for far too long already are finally over.

Term limits for Lakewood anyone?

Question, How long have you been living in Lakewood?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

It's not like a vaad candidate has never been good. E.g., Isaac Ackerman.

Keep on voting in the same candidates over and over again and expecting different results.......
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Just curious why does the planning board lack jurisdiction to hear the Cedabridge plan?

The lawsuit could reverse the zoning that allows retail. Once the lawsuit is filed, we could make the argument that the planning board has no jurisdiction to rule on an application for a shopping center when there is open litigation that will likely result in the ruling that retail was never legally allowed there.
