Nobody seems to realize that this Tuesday is a primary election day her in Lakewood. As usual we are having two incumbents shoved down our throats along with their running mates that are there for show. I, along with others, took it as a fait accompli that we are destined to be saddled with a Committee , for another ten years, that does nothing to improve or even correctly maintain, our wonderful Township.
But why must it be this way? Why should we sit back and accept substandard representation? If these guys worked for us, surely they would have been fired long ago.
So how do we fire them this Tuesday? If everyone that reads this would go out and vote and replace Menashe Miller on the Ballot with a write in for ELAZAR FOLLMAN. Known as LOUIE, MR. FOLLMAN is a well liked, intelligent, successful businessman in Lakewood. He has served on the Planning board for many years. He has a livelihood, and would not be swayed by builders, developers or influence peddlers.
While you are in the booth you can vote against Kyrillos for the Senate seat. Choose anyone but another self serving career politician such as him. David-Douglas Brown would be a refreshing alternative to Kyrillos and his old fashioned government overspending ways.
So on Tuesday please go to the voting booth and vote in your primary.
If you are a Democrat, vote for:
MIRIAM MEDINA and write in ELAZAR FOLLMAN
If you are Republican, vote for:
Michael Berman and write in
There are plans in the works for long term changes to the Township Committee, but we can begin some change RIGHT NOW, THIS TUESDAY.
We have strength in numbers. Spread the word, tell your friends to tell others. This Tuesday can be a special day. As I asked one commitee member recently, "please tell me one thing of substance you accomplished for the good of the Town in the last ten years?" He had no answer. Now we will hopefully have someone with ideas that will be able to give us an answer.
A few extra minutes of your time, can make all the difference for the next ten years.
