No fans of Christie

Today is school board election day and in Roxbury, these shirts are making the rounds at Roxbury High School.

    If the teachers were telling the truth, the shirts would read – “Save our Ludicrous Annual Compensation Increases.”

    Christie’s plan has a much higher likelihood of saving the state than anything the NJEA would ever propose or agree to.

    Fred,

    I’m the first to say people should stand up for their beliefs so I welcome the opposing point of view but I do think it’s pretty sad the vote “yes” and “ditch Christie” gang won’t indentify themselves and stand by the courage of their convictions. Apparently they also do not posses the courage to have their convictions challenged – about 70 of our VOTE NO ON SCHOOL BUDGET signs were stolen late last night and some vote yes signs were in their place. Not a problem…we just went out in the wee hours and put some more of our signs back up.

    I realize we’re dealing with a highly volatile issue so emotions are high, but using cowardly and dishonest measures only erodes whatever credibility the vote “yes” and “ditch Christie” gang hopes to have and makes their claim “it’s for the children” ring hollow.

    Fred – What is your prediction for the school budget passing rate in Morris county and statewide?

  4. Maureen, I’ve observed a similar phenomena in Washington Township. The “vote yes” signs remain where they are, but the “vote no” signs keep disappearing. Perhaps the “yes” crowd thinks their right to free speech trumps the opposition.
