Endorsements in a Vote-By-Mail Year

It has been a strange year, for many reasons, so it should not surprise us when we have to make unexpected adjustments to our production schedule. Historically, the West Essex Tribune offers its endorsement of local candidates — specifically the Township Council and Board of Education races — in the final edition before Election Day. That was the plan for this year as well, even when it became clear that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our state’s elections would be done entirely by mail (those who show up to polling stations on Election Day may fill out provisional ballots).

Speaking for the Voiceless: LPI: Helping the Disenfranchised

Article Image Alt Text

By Jeff Friedman
Editor’s Note: This week, in his own words, Jeff Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), reflects on the concept of disenfranchisement and how residents can assist LPI in helping the disenfranchised.
    •    •    •
Vocabulary.com offers the following to describe disenfranchisement; “Being disenfranchised is no fun. The rules work against you, your rights are constantly violated, and you have little power to change your life for the better. The Old French word enfranchir means ‘to make free,’ and when you add the negative prefix dis-, disenfranchised means ‘made unfree.’ A disenfranchised population doesn’t rest easy.”
