LPI just received hundreds more, including beautifully crafted children’s sweaters, hat/scarf sets, blankets, hats and dolls. LPI volunteers delivered the bounty of warmth and comfort to long-time distribution partners, the Bessie Green Community, Newark Emergency Services for Families, and the Willing Heart Community Care Center, all food pantry operations and providers of varied services to the homeless and profoundly poor.

Fifth in a Series of Campaign Questions: BOE Candidates Discuss Increasing Members, Diversity

During the period prior to the November 3 election, the West Essex Tribune will make space available to each of the Board of Education candidates, at no cost, in order for them to present their views to the public. It is our hope that this will allow the voters to make a direct comparison which will assist them in making an informed voting decision. Candidates are not obligated to answer the questions, or even to present any statement at all. A maximum of 300 words is allocated to each candidate each week.

This week’s question is, “The Board currently has five members. Some in the community have suggested that there should be more members. What do you think about this and why? Do you think there should be more value placed on having a more diverse board?”

Mayor, Deputy Mayor Testify In Favor of Energy Cloud Proposal

During the October 5 meeting of the Township Council, a representative for PSE&G asked the Council to support its Energy Cloud filing, a program that would let the company know when there are outages without having to get calls from customers. By sending a “ping” to homes to see ifpower is working, the length of outages would b e shortened, particularly for smaller outages that the company may not be immediately aware of. The representative explained that the radio frequency used for the “pings” are 800 times less powerful than tho se used by cell phones. Residents may also opt out of the program should they choose.

As a result ofthe discussion, mayor Rudy Fernandez and deputy major Shawn Klein testified at a hearing before the Board of Public Utilities in support of the proposal. The following is the joint statement they made to the Board.
