SK,JS: You complain about apathy but don't approve of giving everyone additional means of input? IRead Morew onder why people are turned off? Maybe because they are tired of double talk and lack of sincerity? I am sorry to say this, but you are so caught up, like everyone else in politics, with this us against them logic that you do not even see the REAL problems here. You could have used some more votes but now you want to limit the process to only those who agree with YOUR beliefs??? That is a disservice to the people of Monroe. How about YOU TRULY and honestly broaden your own beliefs and understanding of everyone's feelings to gain more support and get more votes? Both R's and D's have to stop dividing with their lame party beliefs, and start representing the people. That DOES includes those you don't personally agree with. This is their town and most do not belong to either party. Are our elected officials here to SERVE or just play politics and raise taxes and point fingers? The people are tired of this useless unproductive nonsense. First place to start is to have a poll to see how the people feel and what they desire.

John - again, what would you like input on? Why don't you attend a meeting and speak out or atRead Moreleast listen to what is going on in town. If you don't agree with the budget what do you feel should be cut?
John Holmes April 19, 2014 at 03:07 PM
Joel - you always have a lot to say about the education side of the budget. Have you ever contacted Read Morea member of the BOE or the Superintendent? Have you ever attended a BOE meeting?

Joey, Joey, Joey, ...its so nice you and Jane are learning big words! But lets try to use themRead Morecorre ctly ....I may be arrogant, that's for others to judge, but it has nothing to do with Jane, or your, ignorance when it comes to Common Core. We have representatives on the BOE who are supposed to be looking out for us, not pretending to understand something that is presented in such a way as to "obfuscate" the real issues at hand. Do you, and Jane, wish to have representatives that pretend to understand something just because they are afraid to ask for clarification and to have it presented in language that the everyday person can understand? I believe that you two, and others, are simply happy to sit back and let this happen. As I pointed out earlier the entire wave of CC slammed the states, 40 to perhaps 45 seemed to embrace it, but now understand that it is a horrific program being pressed on us and if we don't like what is happening its incumbent upon us to make sure we understand it and fight it off. For the every day parent in the system we need reps like Guttman to do their job and make damn sure they know what is happening. If you think differently then you spend your free time on the BOE or for that matter any other board or commission where you are away from your family for several evening a month and wading through issues that you might not understand. I would like to meet you someday and maybe even Jane, and see what drives people like you.....you can sit on here spouting off your leftist baloney but somehow I doubt you ever spend a minute of your time helping others in our community or anywhere else. How the devil do u have the "big ones" to draw the first breath in criticism of others who do?? Now...that would fit the definition of "arrogance" don't you think? Perhaps you are the proverbial "kettle"????

Jim sounds like you own a dictionary; maybe you could lend it to Guttman so that he could look upRead Moreso me “BIG WORDS”. Jim you’re a Republican and so I guess you’re going to support Guttman, but hey come on now the man is an idiot. Jim settle your self down, relax, turn on cable and watch the BOE and if you start to get worked up just wait a while, Guttman will come on and provide comic relief. If that doesn’t work try Town Council, Vavrek is always good for a few laughs.

Jim Weinberg-once again thanks for the laugh. "...we need reps like Guttman". Seriously,Read MoreI almost choked on my coffee. Please continue sticking your head in the sand while Monroe continues to become the laughingstock of the region. And by the way, I am a conservative and hold a Doctorate as well as a Masters so anytime you would like a proper education, I am available.

Vavrek is a Con Man. How is that for reporting, Jan? The reporting that was once done by a localRead Moreed itor can be picked up by readers if they would take time to write about something that affects Monroe. For example I wrote a piece in the Town Square section on how Steve Vavrek goes about scamming the public into paying higher taxes every year. If everyone would take some time to write about the various corruptions that permeate our town maybe we could make this a better place

Something tells me that the OP was not talking about political mud-slinging. I agree with the OPRead Morein that there is no longer any coverage of Board or Commission meetings, local sports, human interest stories things that only concern those of us that live here. Bill Bittar was everywhere, and I miss his coverage.
