The Township Committee will soon meet to choose the mayor for 2014. As our system works, we do not directly elect the mayor, allowing the five-person governing body to do it each year.

Mayor Vic De Luca has done a great job by all accounts since he re-took the post five years ago.

Democratic Central Committee chair Ian Grodman said a meeting has not even been scheduled to choose the next mayor, which means the TC likely will approve De Luca for another year at the Jan. 1 reorganization meeting.

Should he continue?

Take the survey below and let us and the TC know. We will collect votes until Dec. 31, 2013, and post results then, the night before the TC meets to make its selection.

I'd like to see someone new. Kathy has been the longest running TC member. It's time for someone new. Vic continues to make major mistakes when it comes to commercial property valuation.

"A great job" ?! You should do a survey asking whether he's doing a great job.

Vic is not doing a great job. He's erratic, is poorly thought of throughout the Essex County machine and on top of it he's inept when it comes to valuating real estate. He's not bright but he wants to be in charge and sometimes that's all it really takes.

The residents of Maplewood should elect mayor, not the TC!
