better public schools and a better downtown area with better nightlife. Also, using the money of taxes more wisely. For example, we get a lot of money from Baltusrol golf club, and we used to buy a turf field and new tennis courts for the school even though we need more stores for people and better roads in some areas. Some of the things out town buys just makes absolutely no sense to me.
Nothing to change. I live close to work and plenty of shopping, movies and dinning out. No night life. The area is always clean. Close to major highways and easy to travel. Don't have to travel far for dinning out, plenty of place and different cultures.
