When Rumson shifted its recreation spring crew program over to Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School in 2009, Mayor John Ekdahl called it “an experiment.”
Whether that experiment has been a success depends on who you ask.
In Ekdahl and his council’s view: no. But the perception among the approximately 50 residents and students who packed the council meeting room Tuesday night: clearly a success, and they want to keep the program at R-FH.
The two sides collided on opinion and facts about the crew program, as well as the council’s recent decision to move it out of the high school and fold it back into the borough’s rec department.
