Do you know there were fire elections?
Talk about insulting its readership. You wouldn't know there were elections for fire commissioner if you get your news from the Lakewood scoop or the voice of Lakewood or the Lakewood shopper. None of them reported much on the elections both prior and even this week what the results were and who one. The Yated Neeman did cover it in the Lakewood section. While you may say who cares about fire elections? well it was only last few years that both the the scoop and the shopper went to town with full coverage of the elections pushing for their candidate. If it was not of that importance why did the Lakewood vaad go all out with robo calls and placards asking the residents to come and vote on Motzei shabbos? Dont call yourself the voice or heartbeat of the community when you withhold news items for other reasons.
