Need to establish and hold to an agenda BEFORE the meeting to fully understand the issues they wish to talk about. Another free form meeting will bring us nowhere, and alow them to create conflict. These folks are skilled negotiators, highly educated, and understand how to debate and work a crowd. An agenda will help everyone stay on point and ensure we get what we want answered - not what NJ Mentor wants us to hear. Emotions must remain in check, we must fight with valid points of contention with amplifying backup material. Some sugestions:

- Opening remarks from the host and government officials
- Opening remarks/statement from one member of our community

Issues
- Safety of Brookfiled residents and NJ Mentor children
- Quailification of staff running the home (point to the police metric 17%)
- School impacts, is this the best solution
- Traffic concerns (it already has become an issue)
etc.

Close with a strong statement on the Brookfield resident's position and state that we have confidence that our elected officials will make the best decison for the Brookfield community and stand behind us.

Unfortunately, I'm not as sure as you that our elected officials will stand behind us. I believe that the only closing statement should be that we are unwilling to accept this type of group home in our neighborhood. Period.

I agree with LInda, especially after reading the summary of the Cherry Hill estates associates meeting with Mentors reps.
I think this IS THE ONLY WAY, SINCE THEY WILL DO WHATEVER THEY WANT AS SOON AS THEY ARE IN, SO OUR ONLY CHANCE IS TO SHOW THEM THAT WE WON'T ACCEPT THIS HOUSE NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.

Good Morning:

I would like to offer my spot as a speaker to Alex and Lana Schehet (hope I correctly spelled your last name).

Your voice would speak volumes on this extremely important issue.

My wife and I will be there to lend our support and collective voice in this struggle...

Thank you, Carlos.
I don't mind speaking at the meeting; however, I think our strenght is not in the number of speakers, but in the message we present to the Mentors and in the number of community members supporting this message.(unfortunately we can't present more that 25 members at this meeting).
I think that Jay.H. will be our best bet, remember his speech at Township meeting?
He expressed our opinion in a very clear and informant way, I think this is exactly the way they should hear from us: That we don't wan't such home here.
Repetitive speeches won't do us any good, remember, the more people speak the less focused Mentors will be on what is important to us, and what important is ONE THING-NO SUCH HOME IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.
Lana Chehet.
