Well, if there are some 90.000 residents and who know how many business in the district. If he removed some $2,000,000.00, that’s just about $22.00 per house hold. So who’s getting the money now? Did your taxes go up? So did mine….ô¿Ô…

A public stoning would be most appropriate for Mr. Ritacco.

What started out as a wonderful man doing good things for Toms River has now turned into the classic greed and arrogance situation. He should do the full 14 plus years for what he has done--no man should be above the law no matter how many people he "rats out". My taxes have gone up considerably as I am sure most residents in Toms River have also and why? because of this man raising our school taxes for his benefit. Its about time something is done. Hey--once hes sentenced do we get a rebate from the mones he stole for our school taxes???? Vi P.
