On January 24, 2012, residents of Fort Lee will vote on a referendum. Please do not be deceived.
This is not a referendum on the Fort Lee School system. This is a referendum on “the Future of the Borough of Fort Lee” or more specifically, “Does Fort Lee have a future?!”
Let’s keep it simple. If the usual 11% of registered voters show up at the polls, the referendum could fail. We will then have failed our children, our schools and our community. But if ALL the parents of the children in our school system make the effort to go to the polls, to VOTE FOR THE REFERENDUM, then, and only then, will Fort Lee prove that it has a bright and promising future!
For the first time, the Mayor and Council are vociferously supporting the referendum; Home Owners Association members are supporting the referendum, members of the Korean-American Association are supporting the referendum; Fort Lee students are out canvassing citizens to vote for the referendum. But if citizens of Fort Lee stay home on a cold night, all will be lost! Remember one thing! Antis will always go to the polls, in any weather, because they don’t care about the future of their community; they don’t care about our children; they only care about themselves!
Please Vote on January 24th, and please vote YES!
