Thank you for standing up for the children and public schools of Red Bank! As a teacher- I have high standards for education. Red Bank Primary School ( my daughter’s school for the past 3 yr) & the ️RBBPS as a whole- never stop impressing me and exceeding my expectations!
Thank you for communicating the concerns, facts, and truth that so many of us have.
Red Bank Public Schools need to be commended for their excellence and not penalized by expansion of the charter. Frankly, after careful study of the data- the charter is no longer needed.
Grateful parent & tax payer of Red Bank

Thank you so much for writing your letter to Director Hespe. Your support will hopefully help the state see the light. We do not need an expansion of the charter school, at this time, with so much improvement in the public schools. It is time that the charter school goes away. The original application stated it would be only be open for 5 years. How do I know, I was an original founder. As you stated, the town needed the charter then, not now. That is another fight, I can only hope that your letter and the support from Senator Beck, makes the state see the light. Again thank you.

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy with my own practice in Brick NJ, Bill A1839 is very important to me. Please vote " yes " to this bill! Part of this bill addresses Intramuscular Manual Therapy more commonly known as “Dry needling (DN).” This is a skilled intervention used by physical therapists that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is a western medicine approach and is
the practice of Acupuncture or Chinese Medicine. Physical therapists have been safely performing dry needling in the United States for the past 25+ years, according to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy. Dry needling is confirmed to be within PT scope in 25 states and Washington DC. In most other states this topic is “open”, like new Jersey. The United States Military permits only licensed physicians
physical therapists to perform dry needling on our military personnel. In NJ, the 87th Medical Group Physical Therapy Clinic at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst offers dry needling as one of their services to active duty service members.
A study published in 2010 in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine by an MD and a PhD concluded that “Its (dry needling) effectiveness has been confirmed in numerous studies and 2 comprehensive systematic reviews. Dry needling can be used as part of complex treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain…”
Dry needling is only part of a comprehensive physical therapy program which includes neuromuscular, re-education, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, postural correction, movement re-education, etc.
Our state needs to be modernized regarding this topic and keep pace with the rest of the country and the world.
The great people of New Jersey deserve to have access to this intervention performed by Doctor’s of Physical Therapy.
Please Vote yes to Bill A1839!
Thank you for your support

I read your commentary in the press about the pension problems. I’m not going argue the fact there isn’t problems however, the moves made by the Ocean County republicans giving Mike Reina cushy high paying jobs and his double and triple dipping is a classic example of why we have problems. Don’t blame the little guy.
