A former Cherry Hill school board member pleaded guilty Wednesday to stealing about $72,000 over three years from her church, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said. Lynette Howard, an active district parent before her election to a three-year school board term in April 2010, used First Baptist Church of Cherry Hill's funds to pay living expenses, such as her mortgage, cell phone and car expenses, said Jason Laughlin, a spokesman with prosecutor's office. Howard, who had served as church treasurer, allegedly took the money between 2007 and 2010 by writing checks to herself, Laughlin said.

An informed citizenry is the best assurance for good government. A current example of the wisdom of that philosophy is the condition in which Cherry Hill, Camden County's second-largest community, finds itself.

Yet its present economic circumstance, brought about by various political calculations, is quite dire.
