Both BoE meetings and City Council meetings need to have printed transcripts. I’m not deaf, but someone that is could not benefit from these broadcasts.

I hope the person teaching/running the video production classes is not in charge of these tapings. I was a radio/TV/film major in college and if I turned in work like this I would have flunked.

When is Romano stepping down from the board? When he is sworn in as freeholder, he can no longer hold both seats.

Isn’t it illegal to edit these tapes? I was at the meeting they did not need to change the tape at that time. Who do we contact about this violation?

The monthly meetings now run once a month on Ch. 77? Yet another BoE outrage and an obvious attempt to keep information away from the public. For months they have been showing the Will Smith movie “Pursuit of Happyness” round the clock.

what happened to the sound system? Maybe the Board should hire a piano player like in the silent movies. 😆
