Paterson BOE member visits Atlanta


I am writing this letter to express my deep appreciation to the people of Atlanta, Georgia for showing me such hospitality warmth and kindness during my visit here. Although the reason for me coming was to attend an educational conference, I could not miss the opportunity to visit world renowned historical sites such as Ebenezer Baptist Church and the birth home of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

During my time here I was able to reflect on the importance of the different educational tools that are available for students across the country. I am pleased to report that I have gathered and ascertained a plethora of information, that I’m bringing back to the Paterson Public Schools District for the purpose of helping to empower our students and the entire district.

Words cannot express the deep gratitude and appreciation that I have for having been able to come down here to get this information because a lot of this information even though readily available, is very rarely placed in front of you. So, to attend this conference and to get this information in addition to being able to pay homage to a great leader and his family was just the icing on the cake.

I very much hope to one day be able to return to Atlanta, Georgia and also to Birmingham, Alabama so that I can follow the path that Dr. King traveled. I want to be able to see the events that took place with my own eyes. I want to go to Memphis and all the different places because, you know, this really inspired me.

As I return to Paterson completely refreshed, renewed, inspired, and enlightened I fully intend to be the best school board member I can be. I don’t mean that in a competitive tone because really the only person that I must compete with is me.

See you soon, Paterson. See you soon.

School board member


    Spoolers forced me to take down the sculpture of hr pufnstuf that had stood on my property since uncle tang's paper mache & mushroom party in 1972. idiots, because it turns out the thing was full of superbugs which are now free in the borough. they made my neighbor stop using electricity to water his lawn, just because it had caused a small fire that burned down jordan hill's parent's friend's outhouse. how are we supposed to make the borough look nice if one of the three major plant food groups (water, electricity, feces) is missing? WAKE UP AMERICA.

    in the grave it feels colder than it is, the darkness, darker. earth smells have given way to an almost antiseptic scent. my partner's hands were papery dry a little while ago but are now oily and swollen. it seems like her lips have shrunk but I might be imagining this. the silence is incredible. even the sound of my movements are eagerly swallowed up by whatever power controls this place. a few hours ago I thought my partner cried out. it was shockingly sudden and loud. absurd because her voice was stilled at least 48 hours before then. I know I must have wet myself. I felt wetness, but there was no telltale odor. Now I question whether she actually screamed or if I'm being drawn into someplace different. there's a strange feel to the air suddenly, like a small door opened somewhere in the crypt. I hear noises now, a tiny abrupt scrabbling sound. louder now. louder still, maybe not so tiny? I feel air moving but it does not smell fresh at all. I hear voices – this is extraordinary. no language I've ever heard before. louder, coming toward me? impossible. oh dear god the whole is shaking oh god oh my god a hand fa
