Sen. Ray Lesniak likes to say that his door is always open to address any concerns of his constituents, but his door was decidedly closed when about 75 people marched back and forth in front of it, chanting, waving signs and calling for the firing of Kean University President Dawood Farahi on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Ironically, the senator’s door was perhaps closed because he was not there, and instead was receiving a lifetime achievement award for keeping Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive from the United Youth of New Jersey. Those marching past his door on that bitterly cold morning most certainly do not agree with the senator’s most recent actions, and instead find them antithetical to the spirit of MLK. Looking only at his most recent statements and actions surrounding Kean, LocalSource finds the award misplaced.
