Home rule is a myth:
It’s election day in New Jersey. On the ballot — 548 school district budgets; 1,600 school board positions; 11 districts 2nd ballot questions, and 19 have new projects that would cost $212 million.
Some people think it’s useless to vote against these budgets because the local municipality can reinstate them. If that’s the case, the people involved should be booted out at the next opportunity.
The fact they would try to reinstate them or the state would puts the lie to Home Rule, it’s a myth.
