The results on NorthJersey.com are incomplete and inaccurate. Here are the unofficial but accurate results:

Polls open at 2 p.m. to elect three members of the Board of Education and vote "yes" or "no" on the proposed $117 million budget, which uses nearly half of your property taxes.

So, please get off your ample tushes and vote.

IF THE PAST IS ANY GUIDE, MORE THAN 90% OF THE REGISTERED VOTERS WILL IGNORE TUESDAY'S SCHOOL ELECTION: That will be the case, even though nearly half of your property taxes go to support the schools:

What's your excuse for not voting?

So The Record and NorthJersey.com first published a story reporting the proposed school budget as $112 million, then revised that to $117 million, the correct amount. The point that should be made is that local school taxes are NEARLY HALF of your property tax bill. Still, hardly no one votes in school elections, and the people who do vote don't seem to realize they can reject the tax levy and the budget will be reviewed by the City Council, which can cut it or leave it as is. Here's my take on the school election, which is yet another referendum on the Zisas:

You have to realize The Record's pages are being made up who knows where, in one of Gannet's design studios. The design studio that was preparing the pages, in Neptune, N.J., was closed last year, and the people were laid off. Now, Gannett employees far away, with limited knowledge of New Jersey, are writing headlines, photo captions and so forth. But if you look at the website, NorthJersey.com, that is also filled with numerous errors and typos, too.

This is from a North Jersey.com story on opening day of the trout season:

I can add a detail The Record story was missing, from my blog post today in The Sasson Report:

General Poor's Tavern

The Record's story on the closing of General Poor's Tavern on Main Street in Hackensack was missing an important detail.

"When The Record had its offices on nearby River Street, the bar was a local hang-out for reporters looking for a story tip or just a cold brew," Staff Writer Rodrigo Torrejon reported last week.

But General Poor's was far more than that: It was the place for going away parties for Record newsroom staffers who were going on to bigger and better things.

I lost track of how many of those parties I attended, but at one point in the Nineties, I just stopped going to those boozy farewells.

The Record story on General Poor's also is the first acknowledgement I've ever seen that North Jersey Media Group's decision to leave Hackensack in 2009 hurt businesses on Main Street and elsewhere in the city,

Hackensack Discussion / Re: New York Times article, January 2018

The writer is Jay Levin of Teaneck. He was the local obituary writer at The Record of Woodland Park (formerly Hackensack) who was laid off by Gannett last year. Unfortunately, his article doesn't discuss all of the tax-exempt and non-profit property in Hackensack that inflates the bills of home and business owners. That omission is glaring considering the piece ran in the Real Estate section.

And he only mentions in passing the biggest quality of life issue in the city -- noisy business and celebrity jets that are always flying over the Fairmount section and Prospect Avenue high-rises.
