Update: The Lakewood School District filed an emergency motion to stop the $30 Million cuts.

View Attorney Inzelbuch’s letter by clicking download below.


In March Lakewood was scheduled to receive roughly $30 Million in state aid. $15 Million was allocation from the state’s school funding to help cover transportation and special education costs – this funded the LSTA for another year.

On top of that was an additional $15 million for provisional stabilization aid.

At the time Board of Education attorney, Michael I. Inzelbuch said, “we thank the state for recognizing the uniqueness of Lakewood.”

Today, Governor Murphy scrapped the $30 Million proposals – creating a real crisis for the township. Read the 247 page proposal here.

The Governors millionaire tax was also not included in the budget.

The Aguda declined to comment.

  1. Thank G-d for the 2% property tax cap. Otherwise, it would skyrocket. Murphy is trying to remove the cap. We need better representation .

  2. YUP
    YOU WERE WARNED
    NEXT ELECTION VOTE SMART
    VOTE TRUE TORAH VALUES-
    DON’T VOTE FOR ANTI TORAH VALUE POLITICIANS JUST FOR SOME $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    HA-SHEM SHOWS

    • No fan of Murphy’s, but this wasn’t him, it was the legislature that stripped the funding. After all the state needs to spend $730 million in Newark to buy votes and $27k per student in Camden and $230 million in Patterson

    • This article was about money, and that is the problem.

      Reb Chaim Kaniyevsky stated clearly about lakewood, that we should vote interests, not values. We have no arvus for Goyim, we are not Goyim. We do not have to teach them how to act, we have to teach ourselves our values.

      Stop the Goyishe mahalach of trying to enforce so-called Judaeo-christian values on others.

  3. That Vaad is the way to go, as Allstate advertises your always in good hands with the Vaad.
    Hope Jackson, TR, etc. don’t let them step foot into their politics.

  4. I thought the LSTA got our aid in lieu money that we are entitled to for transportation. Why do they need additional funding?

  5. Vote for Trump and Republicans and the Democratic have proven that they don’t care about education, security, Jobs…
