    1. John is one of the problems with the school board now he could of been a wolf or a sheep and he opted for a sheep with no balls even now. Just look at the guy no leadership indecisive to make a pretty easy decision

    2. I’m all for the people choosing what is a Board of Education elected or appointed. Who would be against democracy? And is in a proven fact especially in New Jersey, that elected board lowers taxes for the people. (Sarcasm)is the definition of sarcasm>?let’s eliminate politics and political influence in the Board of Education …by creating politicians out of them LMFAO this is ridiculous redundancy. I have said this before it is an option to choose an elected board not a solution.when we stop trusting our elected officials to be able to deal with all budgets, which in West New York and many other communities three quarters of the budget is the education system, we want to create more politicians?we are responsible for this problem the people will still have to stand upand be the regulators of the Board of Education.I will vote no. Because who can we yell at when the Board of Ed still is out of control?if our elected officials have character and our trust about then it’s okay for them to choose every other aspect of our community but the Board of Ed? Sooner or later we might have petitions for elected board of zoning ir elected parking board.and I thought Republicans wanted less government lol…Here’s a solution ..get the legislature to make a law similar to that of the judicial system. No political interference from education into the political and vice versa. This will be so unpopular with politicians because it translates into you can’t ask them for money anymore.which in West New York translate into a lot of money when you have dinner functions for a thousand dollars a plate. Do you really think the superintendents’make $200,000 plus and don’t solicited by politicians constantly? Render unto Caesar used to mean show me respect now it mean show me the money. By the way congratulations Frank..sincerely no fighting. Because you have now gotten people to dowhat I call GOYA
      .get off your ass. Hopefully to vote.I hope I have more faith in the next b.o.e. because this one is useless.unfortunately that’s why this seems so appealing

Tony how would you like to go to burger king and your only choice is a whopper,you wouldnt they offer a choice and you can have it your way… a lot like this election WNY will have a choice finally and you can vote for the candidates that you like that fit your criteria and vote for the ones that are unbossed and politics will be removed and it will become about the children not the side monies…So what happen last month you liked the elected school board and I’m sure next month you will again….and ty brother….
