Check out the Newark Bike Tour of 2018!

September 26, 2018

The logo this year. Groovy, eh?! Bytheway, most of the graphics for the Brick City Bike Collective are made by Tony Borelli. Whom I met on the Tour (that I didn’t finish [ask me for that story, sometime!]) last year.

Later on, when I went to animate it, I saw that I could point out busy Bill, too.

[First, please remind yourself about my post,
about his run for Township Council,

[Then close that window and come back here!]

 

 

West Orange is a great place to live and raise a family. But financially, the property values have not kept pace with most neighboring towns, due primarily to extraordinarily high property taxes. Joe Krakoviak, Town Council member for eight years, including a year as Council President, knows the issues and has a plan to move the town in a better direction!

FAST FACTS ON WEST ORANGE SPENDING

The mayor has raised the municipal property taxes by the maximum allowed, 2%, in each of the last four years. He also says he can’t cut taxes. But 67 New Jersey municipalities reduced taxes in 2017, including two in Essex County. With a “common sense budget” that sets priorities and cuts wasteful spending,
Joe K. can cut taxes, too.

Some recent examples of wasteful spending
that Joe has voted against:

I met Daniel Stein at an opening reception at an art gallery. He was (in my way—just kidding!) at the buffet table. I confided to this stranger, “Wow, I was hoping for crackers & cheese, but these fabulous-looking canapes are awesome!” He thanked me. “Excuse me?!” I retorted. “Oh, I’m the caterer; my partner is in the kitchen!” So I went right to Sylvia Becker, to gush further…

Well, they’re both also as handsome as they are sweet-hearted—and those qualities are commensurate to the well-matched excellent front-of-house/back-of-house skills that this dynamic duo provide…
