You Are Our Voters

Inside this edition of the Tribune is the first round of statements submitted by our candidates for Township Council and the Board of Education. We encourage you to read these weekly statements carefully over these next few weeks; hopefully they will help inform your vote on November 5.

And we are sure you will be voting on November 5. We have the research to back it up.

According to a recent study by the National Newspaper Association, newspaper readers are voters, and nobody votes more than readers of community newspapers. The nationwide survey, which is conducted annually by Susquehanna Polling and Research in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, found that 85 percent of community newspaper readers said they are “very likely” to vote in elections later this year and in 2020. Those who don’t read community newspapers polled at 73 percent for the same question.

Welcome Newcomers

On Monday, September 16, the Tribune was one of many community groups with a booth at the Senior/Community Center for the annual Welcome to Livingston event, where new residents and families were invited to meet, mingle, and learn a little bit about what makes this town so special.

Booths were set up to let people know of all the services and organizations in town (that’s where the Tribune comes in!). Mayor Al Anthony and members of the Township Council, Chief Gary Marshuetz and members of the Livingston Police Department, representatives from Livingston’s school district, and many more were in attendance to provide newcomers with helpful information as they acclimate to their new home.

Twp. Council Candidates Discuss Business Development

During the period prior the November 5 election, the West Essex Tribune is making space available to each of the Township Council candidates, at no cost, for them to present their views to the public.

In an effort to keep the campaign focused on relevant issues, we have again asked the League of Women Voters of Livingston for assistance in preparing questions, as we have in previous years. It is our hope that this will enable the voters to make a direct comparison, which will assist them in making an informed voting decision.

Donations Requested: Upcoming LPI Fur Sale Expands to Include Leather

Article Image Alt Text

Editor’s Note: This week, Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) founder and director Jeff “the Coat Guy” Friedman explains the organization’s upcoming fur and leather sale to benefit LPI’s work with the homeless.
    •    •    •
By Jeff Friedman
When receiving a thoughtful local donation of warm coats and other items for the “poor, homeless and disenfranchised,” Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) was presented with a brand new, men’s leather winter coat. The tag with the hefty price tag was still attached.
The generous Livingston couple who donated it mentioned that perhaps, “LPI’s upcoming fur sale can include men’s and women’s leather, too.” My initial thought was “what a brilliant idea.”
