A Sad Display

An abomination. Shameful. A ghetto.

These aren’t words one typically hears thrown around offi cial meetings regarding a building in Livingston, but over several recent meetings of the Township Council and Planning Board, we have heard just that about a proposed Pulte Homes affordable housing project to be built on the property of the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy. The main point of contention, though there are others, is that there is no elevator for residents living on the upper fl oors of the four-story structure.

The Search is Over

After a nearly year-long search, the Livingston Board of Education announced at Monday’s meeting that it has selected a new superintendent of schools for the upcoming academic year. Matthew Block will replace interim superintendent Jim O’Neill, who has successfully held down the fort, offering a steady hand during this lengthy process.

It’s no secret there has been a revolving door at the position in recent years. Including those operating in acting and interim capacities, O’Neill was the eighth person filling the superintendent position in about 11 years, and the sixth since just 2014. Block will become the seventh in the past half-decade, and hopefully the one who will put Livingston Public Schools back on the path of stability.
