Kinnelon BOE Election November 06, 2012 at 11:58 AM
I urge the support for Keith Dama for Kinnelon BOE. If he is re elected he will be the only board member with significant experience as all the other board members are relatively new. Having worked with Keith I am confident he can continue to do a great job. I think Mr. Davin is a great guy and would do also well, I just believe that because of the current negotiations pending with the Union and Mr Dama's experience of being in charge of negotiations he should be re seated.

Congratulations to Mike & Rich, two good men who unquestionably have Bloomingdale's best interest at heart. This much I definitely know. Now we can't look back. The stakes are high but the path is clear. Lead!

By "joke", did you mean LANDSLIDE??

I am very happy at Bloomingdale's results! I find it to be very weird that Butler and Bloomingdale leaned towards Romney, when they are clearly middle class neighborhoods. Is is like a chicken routing for Colonel Sanders!
