Smear cited in outcome of Monroe-Woodbury vote 

An anonymous letter and flier distributed shortly before Tuesday's school board election reinforced the panicky message that had made the rounds for nearly two weeks.

"Kiryas Joel Dissidents Attempt Take-Over of Monroe Woodbury School Board," blared the flier, warning that Hasidic residents had aligned themselves with three board candidates and wanted "$1 million to send their students to a private special education school," among other things.

Mark O'Brien, one of the candidates targeted by the campaign, fumed Wednesday that the accusations were untrueand that he and two other candidates with no connections to each other or the Hasidic community had been smeared.
