Last night (Saturday night, September 1, 2012) I drove past at 9:30 p.m. and was troubled to see lights blazing with no one at all on the field. Let us remember this was a holiday weekend. In these troubled economic times where we consistently hear that there is not enough money for the police department and schools, I find it frustrating that our town-owned field is wastefully running up its utility bill.
As a taxpayer it angered me that my money was keeping an empty field lit. Made me think - is this what we can expect with the proposed lit turf field on Rahway behind the high school? Just look to Houlihan to see what a future lit field on Rahway behind WHS will be like.
Why add a THIRD turf field? Why add a second lit field when we can't manage light use on Houlihan? Yet another reason to VOTE NO on Sept 24 to ill-conceived BOE (Board of Education) bond vote.
