Reader says several hundred students who will arrive with the developments and several new schools will need to be built

Ridgewood schools are already busting at the seams. Add the several hundred students who will arrive with the developments and several new schools will need to be built. Remember, the census of how many students live in the apartments was taken only at the high rise at Franklin and Maple. No count was ever taken […]

The Brogan project is a disaster for the town. None of these high density projects will benefit anyone except the developers and their attorneys. Westfield is paying attention – it does not want to become Montclair or Hackensack which is where Ridgewood is headed. Where do the developers and their attorneys […]

Reader says Our town politics went down hill from the day Paul Aronsohn was elected and got worse when Gwenn and Albert came on board with him

Our town politics went down hill from the day Paul Aronsohn was elected and got worse when Gwenn and Albert came on board with him. All votes on meaningful issue were 3 to 2 and with Roberta Sonenfeld hired as VM after kicking out Ken Gabbert, it was more like 4 to 2. That is […]

Reader says If you lived here during the Aronsohn reign think really hard about returning to it

To vote for the woman stating flat out lies because you are tired of the Mayor’s friends rebuking Alexandra is really a sad case of affairs. The Mayor’s friends would have no need to defend her or attack Ms Harwin if Harwin’s speeches and her printed mailings said something about her campaign, what she wants […]

Reader says Harwin is portraying Ridgewood as some sort of hostile community

Harwin is portraying Ridgewood as some sort of hostile community in which people are marginalized for being jewish, gay, black, etc. This is completely untrue and horribly inflammatory. I am a minority, my skin is DARK. No one bothers me, no one ever has, no one bothered my kids, this is a wonderful community filled […]

Reader says If you went to the council meetings, you could see Arohnson and Pucc always had chips on their shoulders

file photo by Boyd Loving

If you went to the council meetings, you could see Arohnson and Pucc always had chips on their shoulders about any one and everyone who were not like them or who didn’t kiss their butts. They presented themselves as a pair of self-loathing buffons who perpetually expressed the view that they […]

Reader says Harwin Knows Exactly What She is Involved With

People can be supported by people they like and trust only to learn that those people are not what they thought. That particular helper has fooled plenty of people before. It is to Susan’s credit that she recognized the truth and turned away. Isn’t this what blog posters have been begging Harwin to do from […]

Reader Fondly Remembers all the “insults and hissy fits”, from the Dais

As a Ridgewood resident, how would we expect to be treated at public meetings under the Aronsohn-sponsored regime? The way we were treated when he was on the dais. With insults and hissy fits. And do not forget that if, heaven forbid, his protegees should win the election, “here comes the new village manager, just […]
