Editorial: Commentary on School Superintendent Contracts...The objectives of The Leader/Timesí case study are to understand the workings of the pension system and contracts; enhance public awareness and encourage corrective action to reduce abuse while protecting the interests of legitimate workers and the taxpayers.

Government Reform Thought: Union County Democrats selected a replacement Tuesday night for disgraced Asm. Neil Cohen who resigned. They did so behind closed doors, not open to the public. In that the replacement supposedly represents all the people, we believe the meeting should be public. We also would like to know where is Neil Cohen and why haven't charges been filed.
