DEMOCRAT CLUB ELECTS NEW LEADERSHIP

Politically speaking, Lindenwold is historically a democrat strong-hold. That being said, the Lindenwold Borough Democrats, known as the "Democrat Club", has for decades, nominated and chosen all Lindenwold Borough leaders. The Club meets on the 2nd Mondays of the month at 30 Strikes Bowling Alley and is open to all Lindenwold residents, 18 or older, who are registered Democrats.

The Club recently elected some new leadership and Lindenwold Mayor Richard Roach conducted the swearing-in ceremony. Congratulations to incoming:
  • President: Sam Fields (L-Town - Lindenwold)
  • Vice President: Brenda Roach (Incumbent/First Lady/Library Supervisor/Events Chair)
  • Treasurer: Chris Rasmussen (Incumbent)
  • Recording Secretary: Jane Rasmussen (Incumbent)
  • Correspondence Secretary: Tina Pearman

ROADS AROUND 4 OF LINDENWOLD SCHOOLS GET FAILING GRADE

Good news and bad. Good news is, you were right all along and now there's evidence to back you up. Bad news is, with three D's and an F, the routes to our schools need a lot of help. How dangerous are the drivers around your kid's school? Find out here




To expand on this topic a bit...so the front end of this research is that the roads of Lindenwold, specifically around our kid's schools, are very dangerous. As if that wasn't bad enough, the back end is that insurance companies use this same data to justify charging Lindenwold residents more for our auto insurance policies (our high crime rate plays a role here as well).

OPRA 101 FOLLOW-UP

Thank you to the dozens of people who attended our recent workshop: OPRA 101: Using the Open Public Records Act to Hold Your Government Accountable Workshop.

One of the most memorable lessons from CJ: there's no need for the 4 page form. Simply draft an email to the Borough/County/State records clerk. "This is a request for public records made under OPRA and common law right of access. Please acknowledge receipt of this request. Records requested include: (enter the records you want here)"
