What has recently been stolen in Manalapan is our FAITH that the people who are in charge of this town can actually do the job. It is time for a change at most levels.

Whoever wrote the article for Patch was very accurate in their reporting. I wish I could say the same for the rreporting of the township meeting where the Residents are given 5 minutes with a fake traffic light in their face and are chastised if they want to speak for am extra minute. Then, they can't get an immediate answer and have to wait until a half hout later because the Asst Administrator is made to write the question down and read it back to the township committee to make sure they understand the question. I would think there would be some level of education requirements that a mayor and the committee would have in understanding a question and if not having a direct dialogue with the resident asking it. Having a intermediary conveniently loses the questions that the committee does not want to answer. Residents are so disgusted that they do not even want to come to these meetings because they realize they are a scam, that the decisions are made before you get there and the committee is not listening, they are only going through the motions. I think recently of the dispatchers and the budget process where it was actually said to them and they did not care, the decision was made. There needs to be more honest reporting of these meetings by the press rather than what is currently happening.
