So after the last 18 months of impassioned pleas by former and present Chester Boro township committee members such as Val Schloesser and Janet Hoven; letters to the Exec. County Superintendent from Charlene Arrington; demands to the NJDOE from Jamie Button: Give Chester Boro a voice on the West Morris Board of Education! Let our voices be heard on the BOE! Stop denying us our fair representation! After all of this talk, how many people submitted petitions for the new board seat? 0 0 0 Never mind....
