A recent ad placed by Steve Langert And Mike Delia makes some pretty lofty claims. While we doubt most Lakewood residents would believe such general, non proven claims, perhaps we need to reveal how the opposite of all the exclaims is true. The ad reads as follows;
LANGERT & D’ELIA: A strong record of accountability, transparency, fiscal responsibility ... and RESULTS!
If accountability and transparency were the norm during Steve Langert' and Mike Delia' time in the township committee, many of them would be in jail. Both of their terms were filled with nepotism, cronyism, unreported income, conflicts of interest, and endangering the welfare of residents for personal gain. Steve has provided jobs for friends, many that were totally unqualified. He has been involved in zoning changes on properties that he is a partner, and has purchased properties with family members from the Township with the intention of building more Townhouses, and contributing to the damaging over development of our town without openly revealing his sources of income.
The harsh weather of this past winter has left many of Lakewood's roads filled with dangerous potholes which cause costly damage and accidents. Most Lakewood residents traveling our roads acknowledge that it takes a lot of manpower and time for Lakewood’s DPW road dept. to assess and repair them. However, we are well into the month of May and many of us are still waiting to see these important repairs get done . Knowing how hard it is to keep up with the pothole repairs, I was shocked to find out this week that the DPW, by order of upper management has decided to dedicate an entire week, and all its manpower, to repave a tennis court in Pine Park, thereby delaying the work on our roads in desperate need of repairs.
Where is our township manager Steven Reinman going to play tennis this summer with his good friend Steve Langert? Once again we see those in power caring about their needs at the expense of the needs of the town. If you blow a tire on a pothole this week, you can feel better knowing that Steve Langert And his buddy Steve Reiman got their exercise.
READER SUBMITTED Here we go once again, one hand washes the other. Steven Langert endorses Bob Singer on the radio and Bob Singer returns the favor, politics as usual.
Mr. Senator, Steven Langert has been on the committee for 6 years now. The only thing Langert has to show for it is cutting approximately 1 million from the EMS services, a life depending service that is extremely important to all residents of Lakewood. Is that what you call heading in the right direction?
Another point you mention in your video is that Steven Langert is the "budget chairman". That may explain why our taxes keep skyrocketing year after year. Thank you for the information the voters need to take to the polls.
As you may know, many people wanted to do something special as a zechus ľiylui nishmas my nephew, Hayeled Eliyahu Eliezer z"l ben R' Shabsi Yaakov Yosef Halevi n"y Raitzik, a nine year old boy who was niftar in his sleep on the Erev Shabbos before Purim. Together with Rabbi Mordechai Zions shlit"a, it was decided to continue the Avos U'banim program after Pesach, for Phase 2, as a zechus ľiylui nishmaso.
While the family will cover much of the cost, in order for the program to not be lacking anything, several thousand dollars will still need to be raised. As such, I am appealing that each person that would like to be a partner in this mitzvah kindly send in five dollars, with their tax deductible checks made out to 'Avos U'banim', and mail it to:
Avos U'banim, c/o (my brother) Rabbi Shabsi Raitzik at 414 Yeshiva Plaza, Apartment 4C, Lakewood, New Jersey 08701. B'ezras HaShem a solid response will be a big chizuk to the family, and also sufficient to cover the cost involved with this project. Thank you, tizku ľmitzvos, and v'chol hamosef, harei zeh meshubach. May we only share in simchos, vaiter. Chag kosher v'sameiach, Moshe Raitzik
Committeeman Steven Langert has become a victim of the infamous Cryptolocker Ransomware, and after paying hundreds of dollars in ransom, he’s hoping his experience will save others from the nightmare.
Committeeman Langert told TLS exclusively one of his employees opened an unassuming email on her computer, only to find out it was the Cryptolocker Ransomware. The Ransomware locked up the files, making them unusable, and threatened to delete them if the proper ransom isn’t paid by a specific time. The Cryptolocker nightmare begins as an email from what appears to be a reputable source such as Hewlett Packard or Xerox, with an attachment. The email is actually spoofed and once the attachment is opened it will infect the user’s computer with the malware.
Langert says Cryptolocker required him to pay $400 in ransom to get his files back before the ‘key’ to retrieve them is destroyed. Though he had his files properly backed up, Langert says, “we decided to pay the terrorists.” But the Committeeman hopes others can avoid this dreadful experience. - See more at: http://www.thelakewoodscoop.com/news/2014/04/committeeman-langert-warns-of-cryptolocker-after-falling-victim.html#sthash.RyrPKiK1.dpuf
from TLS Police and the Department of Public Works today were in Tent City to mark more tents for removal, Township officials confirm to TLS. Deputy Mayor Albert Akerman – who together with Committeeman Meir Lichtenstein has put much effort into settling the homeless encampment issue in Lakewood, says housing is currently being found for more homeless residents. Once they’re out, their tents will be ripped down. “We’re currently in the placement stage, and we’ll be tearing down the tents of those placed,” Deputy Mayor Albert Akerman tells TLS. “We’re not chasing anybody out of their tents, unless someone moves in against the consent order,” says Akerman.
Once residents are placed, a large ‘X’ is sprayed onto the tents, marking them for removal by the Township.
