It amazes me that this woman who is running for the Board of Education can come to Kearny after only living in this town for only 3 years and proclaim to know the citizens who have lived here all of our lives. I'm sorry but you won't get my vote live here for a while and then you will understand what it means to be TRUE BLUE KEARNY

I'm not interested in how long a person has lived here, as much as I am in his or her qualifications and commitment to education. Besides, if the big complaint is that the BoE is about nepotism and inside favors, maybe someone who isn't part of the old crowd is worth a look. I don't even know the person involved. I just want to evaluate all the candidates, and would like to think that Kearny voters will make their decisions for better reasons than are stated in the opening post.

How childish. Davidson is from North Arlington and is a teacher. She has a child about to enter the Kearny school system, so she has a personal interest in the quality of our schools. Based on her resume, she's far more qualified than Plaugic or Fernandez. Find out about her before you pass judgment. The purpose of the election is to select the best people to do a job, not have a juvenile contest about who has lived here the longest.

Will not vote for her. She has more experience than Viscuso forgot to mention that but at least he is True Blue Kearny!!! and you took her in the 5th round because no TRUE BLUE KEARNY CITIZEN would run with the slate. Live in town for a while! Get to know the people who live here and establish a relationship with the community first then you gain the respect of the town's citizens until then Kearny doesn't need CARPET BAGGERS. VOTE FOR NO OUTSIDERS!!!!!! ONLY "TRUE BLUE KEARNY"!!!!!!

Being TRUE BLUE KEARNY . . . what exactly does that mean? If someone is living here, sending their child to school here, is paying taxes here, and wants to volunteer their time to make things better . . . .well, that's TRUE BLUE enough for me. Not her fault that good people who have lived here for years . . . making them in your opinion TRUE BLUE . . . have no interest in serving the community.

This is so laughable! What is true blue Kearny? Most of the students just got off the boat! Does that mean they cant't go to school here. Dumb comment wake up! There is not too many life long residents left. They fled a long time ago. Most of the elected officials do not represent the the majority of the residents anyway. Most residents do not vote in these elections any way! They are either too busy working to survive or don't care. I think we should be happy this woman who is educated is living here and taking an interest in the community. Anyone who runs for office has a personal interest. She has a boy going to KHS and is interested in the education system. What is wrong with that?

Wrong on both counts. I live in Kearny for nearly thirty years, and I'm not on the school payroll or any other payroll in Kearny. What is it about some people that makes them think it's OK to make stuff up?

Hmmm... An educator on the Board Of EDUCATION what a novel idea! Someone who knows the challenges teachers and children alike are faced with every school day. Nah that makes to much sense! She's got my vote!

What's laughable is your comment in comparing with being a Board Member and living in town. I would think the current Board Members were products of the Kearny School System and were raised in Kearny. I am aware that this town has changed and I am of the belief that you have to establish yourself in this community in order to gain the trust of the people. Anyone can have a good resume on paper but having experiences in growing up in Kearny matters and will factor into decisions you will make on the Board of Education.So for Ms Davidson get out in the community and learn about Kearny first and share with the many organizations that are the backbone of Kearny and will offer you in helping you be an informed Board Member, until then your resume for being a candidate is incomplete.

What is amazing is that you people keep bringing up names who have moved on. The BOE is not their life like it is yours. You are clueless about posting things here and the people behind the posts. This individual you keep referring to must be someone who you fear because you keep bringing him up. The insecurity you show is impressive.

I'm sorry, but the simple act of growing up in town does not complete your resume and it does not necessarily make you a better candidate for the school board. I'm sure it helps, but you can still be a viable asset to the educational decisions that need to be made without having lived here for decades. The fact that a candidate is in fact an educator should certainly trump where you grew up, don't you think? Does being a police officer bring something of value? Or an accountant? Or a bank officer? Diversity is a necessary component to independent, sensible decisions, not where you grew up. Some of the members of the school board who have lived here all their lives weren't particularly good at moving things along, were they? They didn't necessarily do what was best for the town or the school system. It's kind of disgraceful to diminish someone's intentions just because they're "NEW" to the town.

I do not know this woman but this discussion is really silly. The woman was a special education aide at Washington School. Obviously a calling as she went on to receive her degree and become a special education teacher. Mrs. Davidson good for you! In addition, look up her salary on the public website. She makes little more than a starting teacher in Kearny and works in Paterson. Maybe if she was related to a BOE member she would have been hired in Kearny! So she spoke up on behalf of teachers in a district run by the state that is run by a Governor who hates public education and teachers! I say again good for her! No, I am not a teacher but have known many many people who in inner city schools that are great teachers and great people! God bless them. The children need them! Lastly, you are ignorant to blame the woes of the Paterson School District on teachers. The state has been running it for years and has not improved a thing! They gave top administrators perks and raises and ignored the teachers and uncertificated staff for years! As far as I am concerned they do not pay teachers enough in those districts. Mrs. Davidson good luck to you in your election! Because I know the individuals and their whining entitled family members behind these posts, i can tell you not everyone who works in Kearny is ready to bite your flesh. If you get elected maybe you should look into transferring some of those entitled people out of their white tower into schools where they may actually see the challenges that really exist!

It certainly is! It would likely be a problem if every individual on the BOE or town council were new to the community. However, maybe it is time for a new comer? A little diversity on the BOE would not hurt either considering we have such a diverse community. A fresh perspective may be nice. I wish more people would get involved. Some are always criticizing old regimes but a new comer gets involved and they still complain. I guess some people cannot ever be happy! This is exactly the reason people do not get involved in Town and you have people running unopposed for public office. So sad!

Why not run for the Board. You have a person who is now the principal of Garfield school with no qualifications, no elementary degree . I feel sorry for these students who have gone from a great principal and now one who has no clue!!!! He was appointed just because they had too many vice principals left over after re districting. Unfortunately these students will suffer!
