To Our 4th Ward Councilman

Are you wondering why the new 4th Ward Councilman's photo does not appear on this page? How many of you think that the 4th Ward Residents are represented anywhere in this city? Are we represented on the school Board? No? I would also hazard a guess that most of the Public School children are from our ward. The new 4th Ward Councilman's photo will appear here when I am convinced that he holds our best interests as important.

Questions:  For our Councilman
  • What do you know about the NJ NCLB Waiver?
  • What is a Focus School?
  • What is a RAC?
  • What is meant by overhauling 6A of the Administrative Code?
  • Do you think Superintendent's should be able to call Special Board of Education Meetings?
  • What do you know about the NJSIAA requirements of coaches?
  • What is the subject of 18A: 27-10.1-4?

Mr. Hamer was advised that his input and interest was needed at the school board meetings, because there is no 4th ward representation on the school board. He had no answer for this then and seems unaffected now. I wrote him an email letting him know how disappointed I was that he was absent. He was informed that there was a board meeting also scheduled for the next day. He did not appear at this meeting either. It is abundantly clear that the councilman is not interested. 

Do you think that the 4th Ward Councilman should show some interest and concern in the school system in this town? Write him and let him know how you feel.
Elected officials must learn what we expect of them. We must stop letting them off the hook as they proceed to break all of the promises they make during the campaigns. (Oh, I forgot, he never promised to fight for 4th Ward Residents.)

The next school board meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 13, 2012

The Councilman might also want to meet the new Assistant Superintendent of Schools.
