Time for change, No sign of the Mayor on the streets, He can't find anyone to blame anymore for this property tax mess and can't face the public in trying to explain why this happened. Leadbeater is walking and talking to the taxpayers and is gaining everyday. Time to throw this guy out. Change is Possible.

Time for change???? No sign of the Mayor on the streets???? I see him around town all of the time. All you have to do is look. Did you ever think he might be busy performing his duties as mayor? One would think that it takes some effort and time to do that in a town the size of Kearny. Property tax mess???? What mess? He doesn't need to find anyone to blame for the property taxes in this town. Kearny's finances are as stable as they can be given the current economic situation. Kearny has one of the best situated financial positions of all the municipalities in New Jersey. It seems pretty evident that rising costs related to salaries, insurance, utilities, etc. would cause continued increased costs for the Town regardless of who was Mayor. But given those circumstances, the Mayor and Council should be applauded for their planning and preparation to put the Town in a positive position. If Mr. Leadbeater was qualified, he should have known that. I would actually like to see Mr. Leadbeater actually present a plan to reduce costs. I don't think he has one or is smart enough to develop one. Time is short, the election is just a few weeks away.

Can't face the public???? He seems readily available and pretty easy to approach. Just visit him at the Town Hall.

Leadbeater SHOULD walk and talk to the taxpayers in this town. He should be apologizing to each and every one of them for his time served as a council member. He didn't understand hw to manage the Town then as a council member and he sure doesn't understand how to do it now as a mayoral candidate.

Change is always possible. The voters proved that when Mr Leadbeater was "thrown off" the Council. Why should we change anything? Al Santos is the best candidate for the position. Kearny is lucky to have him.

Leadbeater promised us a plan. Where is it?

Until I see a better plan that will work, I'm not interested. Especially after seeing that Leadbeater can't even write an intelligent advertisement for himself.

You think things can't get worse? You're wrong. An incompetent mayor would just make more problems.

Are you for real. Mayor Santos had a 10 point plan and NOT 1 thing has been done. He has RAISED taxes almost 100% since he has been in office. I received his literature yesterday and could not believe all that he claimed. If he really brought in 46 million in new tax rateables, then he really has done a TERRIBLE job with the tax dollars. Open your eyes and see it is time for a change.....

Can you prove that not one thing has been done? I doubt it.

And Mayor Santos didn't raise taxes all by himself. Things cost money. Services cost money. Making improvements costs money.

As long as the cost of doing business continues to rise, so will your taxes. That's reality. Leadbeater can't promise not to raise taxes. No one can.

NJ is expensive. Deal with it or move to Iowa where they don't have nearly as much in terms of constituent services.

How come John didn't ring my bell today? Instead he just left a door hanging document saying "sorry I missed you". Easy to miss someone when you don't even attempt to talk to them.

And I'm still waiting to see this plan Leadbeater promised. Obviously he doesn't have one.

Hearing is just fine. Thanks for your concern. Why should I call him when he obviously does not wish to speak to me? Not calling him, not voting for him.

Wrong. Definitely not a Santos lover. My vote was up for grabs this year. But it was John that did the ignoring, not me. If it had been Santos that did the same thing, then I would be saying the same thing about him.

Oops, sorry. I'm not Mary. I'm not even empolyed by the Town or the County. I'm just a regular old taxpayer and lifelong Kearny resident who thinks Mayor Santos has done an excellent job as Mayor of Kearny. It's seems that you are way too angry to even express your views constructively. This attidtude won't benefit Leadbeater or his campain. If I were you, I'd start stocking up on tissues NOW. You will be crying for a long time after the November election after Mr. Santos gets RE-ELECTED!!!!!!

You can rest assured that if Santos gets another 4 years we will see a major property tax increase, with a strong possibly of major layoffs next year across the board. This town is headed for bad times, and if i'm wrong will the Mayor go on record and say there won't be increases in taxes and a reduction in the towns workforce. We need checks and balances in Kearny, the one party system in this town doesn't work. Leadbeater will hold the line on taxes because he is committed to making it the centerpiece of his election. The Santos 10 point plan failed and was all lip service and a broked promise to the taxpaying citizens of this once great town. Its time to break up this party, because the people who are paying for this party (TAXPAYERS) never were invited. Leadbeater will get this town back on track. He deserves that chance. think about that when you vote on November 3rd. ARE YOU BETTER OFF NOW THAN YOU WERE 4 YEARS AGO. I know i'm not!!!!!!!

I guess I would have to agree with you on this one. I wasnt sure about voting for Leadbeater, but the more I hear the better I like the man. I think from the stories I head in his earlier days, I to might not have voted for him. But from everything I hear he is trying, and trying very hard. I like that in a man. Now I think I am ready to give him my vote. I hope that he does well.
