We ask that the administrator continue to evaluate and reassess procedures and policies pertaining to cyber bullying, racist and inappropriate posts that plague the site. Just today Governor Murphy released a statement regarding Facebook removing an anti-Semitic, racist group page called, ‘Rise Up Ocean County’ that allowed hateful rhetoric. We commend the Murphy administration and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal for working toward stopping the spread of hate on the Internet and demanding meaningful reforms to address the proliferation of hate online.
We also urge, for the sake of full transparency, the forum to remove the Township seal as to not confuse any future members from thinking they are joining an official Township run site.
We strongly feel that these considerations will go a long way in protecting all of our residents. The Township is committed to working together to provide a space for residents and officials to share ideas and concerns in a safe and productive environment.
