SCHOOLS AFFECTED BY A LARGER SENIOR CITIZEN POPULATION?

“They are also not likely to accept tax increases without a fight. In Manchester, where most of the voters are older than 60, school budgets fail year after year. The protest votes do not faze Mrs. Cameron, the Mayor.” Ocean County’s Grayer Pastures, Abby Goodnough, July 7, 1996, New York Times.

The voting history of Cranford’s school budget:

2002 passed by 824 votes
2003 by 403 votes
2004 by 468 votes
2005 by 601 votes
2006 by 97 votes
2007 by 513 votes

There are presently 131 senior housing units at Gill Apartments, 99 units at the Lincoln Avenue Apartments and 80 recently approved units (55 plus) to be built on South Avenue--about 160 new residents. The Birchwood Avenue proposal (55 plus) would add another 132 units—approximately 250 new residents. We will have over 400 new residents over 55 if this proposal is approved.
