Spoiler Alert…We Lost

State education aid cut 1.14%, new figure 7% less than Murphy promised.



I called Senator Mike Doherty’s (R-23) office Monday because I wanted to find out how much Belmar residents contributed to the state income tax, which is collected nearly exclusively to use for state aid to local school districts.  Back in 2011/2012 I wrote quite a lot about the lopsided school funding in this state and at that time Senator Doherty had a web site about the issue.  I reported then, based on information from the site, that Belmar residents were paying over $6 million in state income tax.  What I learned in Monday’s call was that the state Treasury is very slow in providing these numbers, even to a State Senator, and that the $6 million number I got in 2011 was for probably 2008.  The newest number his office was able to provide for me this year is from 2012.  Obviously they don’t want us to know this information.

Here is the email I received yesterday from his office.



And here are the attachments she included.


In 2012 we contributed $8.3 million to the fund.  I’m guessing it must be something like $10 million now.  We get back less than $1 million and Senate President Steve Sweeney whines that towns like Belmar are raiding his “piggy bank”.

In this document you will find Belmar in the 30th legislative district.

The fact that residents of New Jersey are willing to put up with things like this is one of the reasons I have decided to leave this place.

    We’ve heard that one from you Tom. Why don’t you try to come up with a new one next time. It’ll give you more credibility.

    Credibility doesn’t mean squat to me. All I want is that lousy scool and everyone who works there to just go away. The who thing is a giant fraud and they’re very much aware of it – I mean that only in the best way of course…

    This is a video of essentially the way I grew up. There was more learning going on in those streets than all these dumb scools put together. It’s because of this new manner of living these days that our children are well rounded people (I didn’t use the wurd dumb). The BOE is made up of people who have zero clue as to what is wrong with the children and therefore everything they attempt is do t fail. I hope everyone enjoy seeing how real children existed, not these quasi-people (usually referred to as children) who are being raised now.
    #6 – We agree I think because we have been around long enough to spot a conjob a mile away.
