I agree. All the candidates have a right to run. We need to pay attention to their message to the voters. Then we need to decide which candidates deserve our vote. Good luck to all the candidates.

For a Board of Education with no money they are sure spending a lot of it lately. According to the Observer hiding at the bottom of the article are many spending items for a School District that had no money all of sudden PRESTO MONEY APPEARS. Troubling time lie a head for the Kearny Schools as Charter Schools will continue to expand draining more money out of PUBLIC EDUCATION and these decisions of spending money now when you don;t know what your Budget will be and reduced enrollments of students going to CHARTER SCHOOLS could result in TEACHER, STAFF LAYOFFS in the future. Pay attention PUBLIC more pain in the wallet in on the way and it didn't have to be this way if this BOARD had went threw with the original plan to expand the Middle School. Bad Decisions, More spending will never solve these problems. CHANGE IS SO NEEDED ON THIS BOARD!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess you hadn't heard that the State of nj finally came out of their stupor and realized there were a lot of school districts who were SEVERELY underfunded, Kearny being one of them.  The District received an additional $2 million sometime during the summer and have put that money to good use to avoid having to HIT up the local taxpayer.  There is great hope that the money will be repeated in the future.  So there's your explanation of the PRESTO MONEY you write about.  By the way, it was in the Observer article.  I guess you didn't have time to read the whole thing???

Will School Taxes go up next year and could the money been better used against future school property tax increases? That wasn't in the article. SPEND SPEND SPEND!!!  We will worry about the next budget next year. Lets hope you get more money next budget. Don't mislead the public into thinking they are not having to pay increased taxes they already payed their share this money came after the fact. You talk like a used car salesperson.  Tell the TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Property taxes are going to increase by a significant amount in the next few years. The grossly mismanaged public  school system finances are the main culprit. The schools rank near the bottom of the barrel in academics in New Jersey. The ignorant politicians and board members abuse the taxpayers with the democratic practice of throwing  more money at the problem with no improvement. The charter school slots are reserved for the children of in-crowd patronage and nepotism parents. The neglected second class public school students will continue to suffer. Secondly, town officials are spending increasingly huge amounts of taxpayer money on hiring and promoting the seldom utilized, poorly trained, uneducated Kearny Firefighters. The KFD is a patronage and nepotism mill with low as you can go standards, excessive salaries and a top heavy structure of Captains and Battalion Chiefs that do not live in Kearny. The Chief alone makes over $200,000! Current residents need to look elsewhere for a place to live because property taxes are a runaway train in Kearny.

I noticed campaign signs are out for the school board election. I also noticed there is different  candidates running. 

Can someone explain to me what is the meaning of " Hometown Leadership and integrity ".

There was no integrity when you hired family and friends. When you don't embrace that your "hometown " has changed. 

This campaign sloan is right up there with "Make America Great Again".

I am an immigrant and a US Citizen.

I moved to Kearny many years ago and bought a house here. I always felt welcomed and proud of Kearny.

That sign does not make me feel welcomed in Kearny. Will you care about my children or just "hometown kids".

You seemed to be concerned about hometown people.

Well, I am a hometown person. Kearny is my home also. This has really made me angry and sad.

I am voting for the other candidates. 

I urge my neighbors to do the same.

Your argument makes no sense.  Hometown means "born and raised" AND STILL HERE.  Still caring about their hometown and trying to make it as best as possible for EVERYONE who lives here.  And by the way, we are ALL immigrants here , some first generation and some a bit further back.  I don't know why this makes you feel not welcomed.  It should make you feel more welcomed that people who have lived here all their lives have not abandoned their home town (as many have done), and continue to work for ALL Kearny's residents.

This group loves to insult other people.

Kearny is made up primarily of peoplewho came from other towns.

So these candidates believe that they are more qualified to serve on the board because they are born and raised in Kearny. I think not. Mrs. Paris, if you had integrity you would not be running for the board. Sounds like sour apples because of your lost.

Someone answer why Paris lost and her two best friends and running mates won by larger margins.  Ballot Position?

Think not. Mrs. Paris, how does it feel to be used?

They're not concerned about the people.

They're concerned about the family and friends they got jobs. They were born raised and still live here and think they're entitled.  To win this election they will add more people to the payroll.

You talk about be an immigrant and living in town, let's talk about the real issue. This group has made a lot of money off this town and continues to make money. If I made a load of dough from town I would stick around too.

Working for ALL people, Bull.
