Several members of the Lakewood Township Planning Board have conflicts of interest that prevent them from voting to approve the project, according to board attorney John Jackson. Between those members with conflicts and two others who were unable to attend a Tuesday night meeting, the board did not have a quorum to vote on the development plan.
The current members are:
Committeeman Albert Akerman
Here are the names of the conflicted individuals:
- Hector Fuentes, the new planning board member, was seen visiting Shaul Mizrachi‘s office. Use your imagination as to what the conversation was about …now he cannot vote.
- Levy Isaacson – he does all the painting jobs for the builders
- Eli Rennert – an employee of First Commerce Bank. He facilitates loans and mortgages for GDMS.
- Justin Flancbaum – ידו בכל ויד כל בו … and he is a member of the MUA
So Jackson rescheduled the project proposed by The Parke at Lakewood to be considered by the planning board on April 2. In the meantime, he said, he’ll continue evaluating other members for possible conflicts.
