Chris is a very logical, rational and straight-thinking, straight-shooter. I think he'd make an excellent addition to the BOE. Loretta B, Office Mngr for South Jersey Dental Care

Interesting, last election, people asked to write moye in for boe. They said he's a "republican" others said he's a "conservative" and now he's backing off and claiming to be "unaffiliated"? For what I heard very few people are actually declared independent. Is this his campaign managers strategy? Other than dimitri schneiberg, who do republicans or conservatives have to vote for? Some were thinking of moye but it appears he's not being consistent?
Red Alert September 12, 2012 at 02:55 PM
Why does it say he is an Independent when his municipal voter record shows that he is a Republican? Trying to pull one over on the voters, appeal to Democrats, hoping nobody will notice? Did he decide he is no longer Republican, something GOP voters may be interested in knowing? I don't like people who misrepresent themselves.

According to voter registration, Christian Moye IS a registered Republican. Schneiberg is a Republican, as you stated, and so are Brandon Pugh and Rebecca Hagerty Williams. Joseph Ruccolo is an independent. David Weinstein, the only incumbent running, along with Sheryl Sawin, are the registered Democrats in the race.

Mr moye This is a campaign issue for boe race? Or did patch do a mistake again? Red alert , it appears you may be on to something that mr moye and/or his campaign manager have a strategy to try to appeal to both sides. If this is true, at least dimitri schneiberg stands for what he is a conservative republican just like people said you were when we were to "write moye in" during the last BOE election. As a conservative, Moye and his campaign manager need to fix this up, before these apparent campaign pieces and parties occur. Also, fwiu, Weinstein was the democrat party chair a few years ago? We really need a clearer picture of our boe candidates. Any more "fact check" answers?

Moye Weinstein & Pugh all the way

I have only made up my mind for one person in this election so far. That person is Brandon Pugh. It seems like Moye has as nice background but not very sure of him now that I see the above comments. He is registered Republican but puts Independent on the Patch? Wonder why?
Amy Tozzi September 12, 2012 at 04:09 PM
The only question I have for all of the board of education candidates is a simple one. Will you work on finding ways to trim the schools budget in our town? Tax increases have been directly linked to our ever-increasing school budget in town. I love our schools as much as the next person, but our taxes are going up and up, driving people out of our town.

Brandon does offer some insight to his tax budget impact. I'll provide you with a link to his platform: http://www.pughforboe.com/platform

This is an interesting trail of comments. I wish that people listed their "real" names like Amy and Loretta do, it might lead to more genuine commentary and debate. I chose to list myself as "independent" because I have the strong feeling that very often voters associate - too readily - labels such as "Democrat" and "Republican" without enough consideration for what the person really stands for. Here is an article that I wrote last year that outlines my perspective quite clearly: http://moorestown.patch.com/articles/letter-to-the-editor-79 I welcome comments about my point of view.

I like a lot of what Mr Moye has to say in the article he posted above, but like others, it concerns me that he tells people he's a Republican but lists himself as Independent. I'm proud of my party, and I would hope you are too.
MHS alumnus September 13, 2012 at 05:41 PM
I agree our town, seems like mr moye is playing political move claiming to be independent? Where's Dimitri Schneiberg profile. At least we know he stands by what he is, conservative republican. And o remember that write in campaign for mr moye too, that mr moye was also a conservative republican. Why this move mr moye claiming to be an independent, when we know you've been a conservative republican? Explain that reasoning ? Is it a concern?

Hi MHS alumni and other.. Ok found it. Www.dimitrischneiberg.com check it out! Don't know why Patch has delayed dimitri profile but fir now check his website. Sounds good.

Read Mr. Moye's letter to the editor attached above in his post if you want to know his reasoning. I happen to agree with it.

@Chris- would you support this pension reform? It gets rid of defined benefits in favor of a defined contribution (401-k plan)? http://www.njtanews.blogspot.com/2012/09/sign-pledge-for-fairer-pension-system.html
Chris Moye September 15, 2012 at 08:20 PM
ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY YES. Please see my detailed reply to your question on Dave Weinstein's profile comments. People that know me well know that I think this is a critical issue for all levels of government, and the only real way we will get control of our expenditures. We do NOT have a revenue problem, we have a SPENDING problem. That problem, at its' root, is related to benefits (even more than salaries), causing "long tail" spending problems. I do not know Dimitri but he apparently is knowledgeable about this point, since he has looked at the cost structure of the schools and knows that 83 percent of the budget is salaries and benefits. I suspect that he and I would be aligned on the key issues. The only way we will accomplish two seemingly divergent objectives of 1) improving education - which we MUST do to allow our children a good chance to compete in the global economy - and 2) keeping our taxes under control, is to look at ALL expenditures closely. THIS WILL BE HARD AND INVOLVE SAYING NO TO SOME SO WE CAN SAY YES TO OTHERS. I am an EXPERT at cost containment (see my background on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=626137&trk=tab_pro) and know how this is done in the business world. I am NOT saying that education is the SAME as for-profit business, but there are principles that can and should be applied. Fundamentally this will require us to define our priorities. Not everything can be a top priority.

Did he say principals ???? I think we have about 20 of them at the high school alone if you include the vise principals? LOL

I registered as a Republican years ago in order to vote in a Republican primary and I have never bothered to change my affiliation but I vote for candidates not parties and always have.

Chris some well reasoned comments here. You've got my vote. Good luck.

The article in Nov 13th's Philly Inquirer says it all. The article foused on Brandon Pugh "From Schoolboy to School Board. Hard-Charging Brandon Pugh 19, Won A Seat". Quoted in the article was Moye. Whan asked about Pugh, Moye said, “I didn’t give him a second thought.” Moye also said, "He said he found it “kind of insulting” to be compared with Pugh. It is statements like these that say a ton about a person's character. And this is not the character the school board needs. Perhaps next time Moye will be less arrogant and condescending to an opponent who quite frankly "kicked his butt".
