On November 6th Manalapan & Englishtown voters have an opportunity to finally make a dent in the way the FRHSD conducts it's business. The current board, as it is currently situated and led by Supt. Charles Sampson, almost from day one of his term has consistently attempted to give raises to administrators and supervisors with virtually no opposition from the board members, including the Manalapan incumbent, Jennifer Sutera. Along with the raises, various stipends for certain district members who Sup't. Sampson relies on have gotten several increases in one year. Add to that, the current tenure charges against former Manalapan High School Principal Simon has run into the high hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees with no end in sight. Mr. Sampson, who vowed to rid us of all the Wasser legacy leftovers, has for some reason, retained the law firm of Schwartz, Edelstein, etc. which was the bulwark abettors of all the Wasser charades that cost this district hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past to prosecute this case of what appears to be, a diminishing list of charges but a windfall for the law firm...All of this with Jennifer Sutera's approval. If any of you attend or watch the meetings, you will know that Manalapan resident, Gloria Close, has fought tooth and nail against the profligate, sometimes reckless spending and camouflaging of budget issues at almost every meeting for the past 5 years. She has rankled board members intent on maintaining the status quo with evasive answers to pointed questions with ridicule and sometimes insulting replies. Ms. Close is not someone who can be pushed aside as Wasser did to the former Marlboro rep. Katie Goon. Ms. Close will fight for the students and the tax payers of Manalapan to make sure they get their full dollars worth of taxes used in the most efficient manner possible.
