The article stated it would state the "issues that affect montville and morris county" while having a one liner at the end of the article talking about economy and job growth? Thats a pretty poor reporting job. as a side note, I noticed that the montville B.O.E. members are running unopposed. Considering the shameful way they handled issues at montville high school concerning the coaches, protecting our students and other extremely important issues, this is such a joke. Montville is turning into the new bergen county. Congrats to the people who laugh when they get elected b/c they probably do not care about you or I.

Mark, polls should open at 6am and close at 8pm in NJ if I am not mistaken. Good luck and go vote!

Brent is correct, but I'll update and add that to the guide, thanks for letting me know, Mark.

Send a message to the mayor and the Township Committee: vote for O'Brien.

My mistake. Poll hours were listed. I did not see them on the small screen on my smart phone. Mark
