john - it seems you want everyone to listen to you but you will not listen to anyone but yourself.Read MoreY ou indicate the budget is flawed yet you offer no details. You claim you are not part of the process yet you do nothing to involve yourself in the process. Your only answer is for the town to conduct a survey but you do not indicate what this survey will entail or what you are looking for. Do you realize a professional survey of the kind you seem to be asking for will cost at least $20,000. Is that something the town should pay for? Nobody is going to do a town wide survey for free. Just like nobody is going to repair our broken infrastructure and roofs for free.

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? Why don't you make the effort to educate yourself about the issues? I guess it is easier to point fingers and assign blame instead of contacting the people who study the issues. Are you afraid the answers you get will not fit into you negative stereotype? It would be like me going off on the P&Z without facts or a knowledge base of the issues.

Again OK I have said what the survey/poll should entail several times already. We spend EVERYONE'SRead Moret ax money all the time but we don't want to spend any on asking the taxpayers how they feel about Monroe government is serving them. THAT INCLUDES ANY AND ALL TOWN SERVICES.( LET THEM PICK A TOPIC) Where are we doing OK Where do they do feel we can do better? Suggestion on problems or suggestions in general. What would they like to change. You claim this is about me, its not its about everyone. You claim I don't get involved but you really have no idea of my involvement in the last 30+years.

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.
Joe Mancini April 18, 2014 at 08:58 AM
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.
