A Lakewood taxpayer opening his eyes
Thank you-now let someone else come in and help the public if the real reason why people run for office is to help the public they help the public by leaving when their term is up as well and make room for someone else to serve the public.
TERM LIMITS would in most cases eliminate people becoming too comfortable in their elected positions not being able to promise anyone anything for too long being their terms aren't that long and if needing to be reelected every 2 years gives the public a chance to check their record what have they delivered to better the town,mosdos,the public. We tend to forget that THE TZIBBUR IS MADE UP OF INDIVIDUALS.
Decisions affecting the public in order to benefit a few mosdos in the name of benefiting the tzibbur are at a minimum misleading and dishonest .Perhaps illegal as well, using public money to fund projects that benefit a few individuals vs. the rest of the township.
I don't mean to point fingers at anyone in particular, as on a personal level I think all the elected committeemen are good people but not everyone has acted or voted on the merits of the issues being voted on w/o outside private interests influencing their voting decisions
