Jackson resident says ‘Cops for Schools’ could be too costly

According to an article in the Tri-Town News of June 21, I read that the Jackson Board of Education and the Jackson Township Commit-tee jointly approved the "Cops for Schools" program.

I thought this was a good program when I read about what it would do, until I saw the escalating cost to provide this service. The program would hire four police officers.

Do the members of the Board of Education and the Township Committee think the public is stupid when they say they will split the costs? The money to each of them comes from the people … the taxpayers.

What other new ways will they come up with to squander our money? How long will it take the township to raise taxes for other unknown and unnecessary fantasy programs? At least we know, "Jesse James had a gun."
