APP Ask The Editor to Discuss "Controversies Plaguing Lakewood" on Facebook Live

 The Asbury Park Press will discuss Lakewood on its Ask the Editor with Hollis Towns on June 8!
APP: Bring your questions for the discussion at noon June 8, where Towns will be joined by Rabbi Aaron Kotler, head of Beth Medrash Govoha; opinion editor Randy Bergmann;  and Lakewood reporter Payton Guion. Tune in for APP’s next Ask the Editor Facebook Live with Executive Editor Hollis R. Towns, where we’ll be talking about the ongoing controversies plaguing Lakewood. We’ll take a look at whether courtesy busing should be eliminated, and whether the legislative delegation has done enough to address funding inequities here, among other questions. 
Here's a question:  Why do you allow the paper to be a Platform and springboard of anti Semitic editorials and comments spewing hate, bigotry and baseless accusations about the Lakewood community?

  1. A better question would be why the APP is still making the false claim that the BOE pays for courtesy busing.

  6. Any reason why APP is blocking comments for the article about Lakewood voting for Status Quoe?

    Is the VAAD now co-opting the APP also?

  7. Builders present the farce that they are providing low income housing for young families before the Lakewood Planning Board and you pretend to believe these lies. Actually, developers are stealing land from long-time Lakewood residents who hoped to spend their golden years living here.Seniors are used as cash cow ratables (instead of industry) with no protections from outrageous property taxes through "hybrid assessments." We want to live here as much as you do. Stop this supposed "gentrification" in established neighborhoods that are taken over by these developers for their own obscene profits. The Lakewood Industrial Park and land giveaways of 36 acres for $10 to special interest groups prove that my individual plot is not worth what hybrid-assessments try to claim!

  8. Watched it. He was extremely political in his answers. Constantly compared the jewish community to christians and muslims etc. By the time you figured out what he was saying, you already forgot the question that was asked...

  9. He said that his son moved to Jackson did not want to live on lakewood because of the traffic and over development.

    Did not call out the APP for its editorials about Lakewood.
