Now that the School Board Election has been shifted to the General Election, the fact that Mayor Santos has increased taxes every year he has been Mayor,the rumors will start soon and the network that will try to confuse the taxpaying public into thinking that Santos is the best thing since sliced bread and while in the same breath attempt to demonize anyone who stands in their way. All people with self interest and something to lose seem to mobilize around Santos, and while we see a reduction in services ie,(Police, Fire, Public Works), Kearny Taxes contiune to increase under this adminstration and more and more people are struggling to keep their homes. November should prove to be an interesting election cycle for Kearny. BEWARE OF THE SANTOS SPIN MACHINE!!!! GET THE FACTS AND DON'T LISTEN TO RUMORS AND DISTORTED INFORMATION!!!!

As of this coming Wednesday, the Police Dept will be down 10 from it's Numbers on 1 Jan of this year(9 retirements, 1 lateral transfer), with the possibility of between 10 and 14 more before the end of the year, and Zero plans to replace anyone leaving. Fire will also be having a number of retirements this year, Town Hall and DPW as well... response times will go up, services will be reduced..a lot of the things that get taken for granted by the Taxpayers are going to come to a halt. as for Santos and Company, The republicans have pretty much given up it seems, they haven't been able to generate ANY Candidates for years, so i dnt know who the Current incumbents are going to Demonize except other Democrats who dare to challenge the accepted order of things :rolleyes: . BOE??? We'll have to see what happens..if the current board can show that they have been doing a better job, Santos and Company will be hard pressed to get rid of them..nevermind that you have people involved that have no problems going toe to toe.....Although not in the sense that apparently one FORMER Member decided to do a while back, not that it worked out all that well for him. All in all, it's going to most likely be a pretty quiet election cycle, unless the Democrats play Kilkenny Cats and gnaw on each other. Admittedly however the sight of that for my OWN amusement, would be epic.

School taxes are half my property tax bill. Doesn't the Board of Education set the school tax rate? Except for last year, the school tax has gone up each year more than the town and even the county tax rates.

Well the Mayor finally did something to lower taxes. The board of ed election will be held in November instead of April. Now the town can just pay one one election instead of 2. The only thing he need to do now is get some balls and make permit parking in the town so we can get rid of all the illegal apartments and out of state cars then Kearny might finally get better.

The Mayor has done nothing to lower taxes. The Board of Education Election was voted on by the BOE to be moved to November. The BOE moved the Election to November, NOT the Mayor! The BOE has taken the lead in being fiscally responsible over the last 2 years, now he is trying to keep pace with the BOE.

You must be kidding. The Board of Education at there January 17th meeting voted to move the school election to November. It had nothing to do with the king. The vote was 7-1 with Zibby voting no and Lisa not there. Shows how much you pay attention to what is really going on

You can try to spin it that way. The reality is that Mayor Santos had already announced he supported a November election for Board of Education members when the bill was proposed by the Assembly. The Board of Education acted because they couldn't let Santos take credit for moving the Kearny Board election.

You have got to be kidding. John Leadbeater has been saying that since he ran for mayor. He said it would hold the mayor accountable for all the increases over the years. Now that we have an economic team in charge of the school district, taxes have stablized. Naturally King al would want to jump on their coattails. He as usual is an opportunistic person. He can learn a thing or two from how efficent these board members are.

That's wrong. John Leadbeater supported a Board of Education appointed by the Mayor. He said so on this forum. He then changed his mind after losing again for Mayor and decided he would run for Board of Education.

Regaining and preserving power at any cost is what this election will be about. Frankie D. is alive and well and is already organizing his troops, and the Mayor will be with him hop and step.This School Election will be about the self interest as opposed to the lack of fairness in not getting a job because your not a family member or politically connected. Don't be used by the Frankie D. spell just because he makes you feel important by inviting you to his mansion for a cookout.This is a bitter man who is out for revenge and will promise anything and do what ever it takes to get his people elected. Don't listen to the rumors and distorted information the self serving network trys to sell you and ask yourself this question, the person who starts the rumor what was his or her gain and reward for being a loyal Frankie D. King Al loyalist. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE PROPAGANDA MACHINE!!!!! SEEK OUT INFORMATION!!!! FIND THE TRUTH!!!! THE HONORABLE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE RIGHT INTENTIONS FOR OUR SCHOOLS WILL STAND OUT CLEARLY FROM THE SELF SERVING AND POLITICALLY CONNECTED PEOPLE WHO ONLY WANT TO SERVE THEMSELVES AND NOT THE TOWNSPEOPLE!!!!!! VOTERS ARE SMARTER AND WILL SEE THEM FOR WHAT THEY ARE SELF SERVING!!!!!!!!

Mayor Santos refuses to speak to Frank DiGesere. Santos publicly stated the Board of Education was wrong when they voted to allow DiGesere to rescind his retirement papers (by a vote of 5 to 4), which allowed DiGesere to stay one more year and make several key Principal and Vice Principal appointments. Santos' reason was that a permanent Superintendent should be making decisions that affect the school district for many years to come.

Than I guess the Mayor does not approve of Mr. Viscuso, because he "ran for the BOE to support Frank Digesere" and is there only for trying to maintain things the way they were.........wrong. Now when Frank decided to stay the BOE was told a vote was not required at the open public meeting, but the idiots "in control" along with council woman Laura Pettigrew decided to show their "support" of Frank. Well the vote was 5-4 as stated in above post and those BOE members voting in support of the "same old way" of not doing the right thing for our kids, teachers and taxpayers were McDonald, Schalago, Doran, Santos and Stevenson! Thank God 2 of those members are gone and hopefully the other 3 (McDonald, Doran and Schalago) will disappear as well, so things can continue to improve and get the Politics and wrongful hirings out of the BOE for good!!!

Milking the town for their own selfserving interests and many others have done the same.

I agree that we don't need to go back to the Frankie D. days and the Mayor having a say in how our schools are run. There is bitterness with these individuals who crave on power.
