In its first telephonic meeting of the coronavirus outbreak, the Asbury Park Board of Education put off voting on a 2020-21 school budget that would raise taxes 22%, even before hearing residents’ warnings that such a steep hike amid the economic hard times wrought by the virus would drive some of them out of town.

No, they won’t. The feminist group Women’s March Asbury Park will not protest the appearance of a man now thrice accused of sexual misconduct at his work and school, one woman claiming to have been drugged and raped.
They won’t; the Women’s Convention won’t. The Progressive “outrage team” won’t protest. The “outrage team” is the political apparat of the Asbury Park City Council, who usually protests any social injustice, real or imagined. But none of them will protest Tyson.
In fact, in this self-proclaimed haven of woke progressives and social justice warriors known as Asbury Park, not a single tattooed feminist will show up at Paramount Theater this Thursday with a protest sign against Tyson. There will be ZERO support for women who say they were sexually harassed, molested and raped. For the love of Bill Cosby, why not?

Currently, City Council candidates in Asbury Park run “at-large.” That means the whole City votes for each candidate.
In a Ward system, the City is broken up into neighborhoods. The people only vote for candidates from their own neighborhood, or Ward. It ensures that each neighborhood is guaranteed a representative on the Council. Newark for example has 5 Wards. You can have a mixed system too, with some Ward candidates and some at-large candidates.

Government can no more denounce a religious belief than they can endorse one, without violating the 1st Amendment Establishment Clause. They then went on an illegal bullying campaign against a Pastor. So caught up in a mob-induced false narrative of gossip, they ignored that the Pastor was bringing financial relief to the Westside black community, something all City Councils failed to do for 50 years.
