With three full tickets running, the opposition slates are splitting the anti-Labrosse vote. That's a tough one.

I'm astounded at the lack of real issues being discussed in this election. There's been multiple newspaper articles, and I haven't seen a substantive issue being discussed.

Issues are downtown redevelopment, including returning Main Street to two-way traffic, as a way of raising ratables and lowering taxes for home and business owners. Will bringing hundreds or thousands of people to live there revive downtown? Englewood has tried that so far without success. Still, if taxes go down .... Hackensack is saddled with the hospital and other non-profits that shift the tax burden to you and me, so any way to add ratables is welcome. Another issue that hasn't been addressed is returning the city to what it was under the Zisas. Will that mean nepotism, higher taxes or what? Look at the schools. The Zisas still control that board.
