New Jersey's Failing Infrastructure

For decades, New Jersey has been kicking the can down the road with regard to infrastructure. Well, as of now even that road is in such bad shape, that the can can’t be kicked any further.

Charles Kucinski on the Vaping Problem

Vaping has become a national concern and Nutley is not immune to this problem.

It is my opinion that it is the Board’s ...

Charles Kucinski on School Security

School Security

An Independent Thinker

You may have seen in the last few elections people running together on one ticket for the BOE and wondered what the benefit was. Well, for those running, the benefit is that perhaps if someone likes one of them they will vote for all three. But for you, the constituent, there is no benefit. There's no benefit to three people joining the board who decide to blindly follow each other.
