SHORT HILLS, NJ – Richard St. Louis of Whitney Rd. in Short Hills recently submitted a Letter to the TAP M/SH Editor, which he made some assertions about Dr. Phillip Choong that are inaccurate and misstatements of fact.

A prior version of this Letter to the Editor noted that Phil Choong was appointed head of the Policy Committee after Jesse Liu’s recusal.  That is incorrect and I apologize to Mr. Choong for any inconvenience and confusion this may have caused.  Mr. Choong’s photograph did appear on MIT’s website and identified Mr. Choong as a Millburn Board of Education member in support of MIT.”
