TRENTON  NJ,  New Jerseyans are inundated with taxes, some of which are among the highest in the country, and now they could be taxed based on how much it rains.  Republicans blasted Democrats for considering the proposal (S1073 : Authorizes municipalities, counties, and certain authorities to establish stormwater utilities) at an Assembly session Thursday.

Assemblyman Christopher DePhillips was strongly opposed to raising taxes on people based on the weather.  He also took issue with how financially irresponsible the bill is, allowing unlimited bonding and ever-more debt on the backs of property-tax payers.

“The last thing this state needs is more debt and another runaway tax.  Especially one that taxes the weather,” said DePhillips (R-Bergen).  “I implore my colleagues on the other side of the aisle: let’s not do this, let’s vote down this bill together, let’s vote no and consider financially responsible alternatives to this legislation.”

Reader says ,When all else fails, play the race card

When all else fails, play the race card.
Call anyone who disagrees with you a bigot or a homophobe or anti women
That’s all the democrats have in their bag of tricks and it was exposed during the kavenaugh hearings
They have no ideas and simply ar the anti-everything tent for single issue voters. And if they ever get control they will be socialist like Venezuela and Cuba because they want 100 percent control.
What is REALLY RACIST is that democrats expect and demand every person who is not Caucasian to vote for them….or they are ostracized.

Bergenfield Mayor and Bergen County Executive Candidate Norman Schmelz Says Other Bergen County Officials Did Nothing During Saudino’s Tiraid

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Bergenfield NJ, In a statement Bergenfield Mayor and Bergen County Executive Candidate Norman Schmelz said , “Michael Saudino’s resignation is a step in the right direction for residents of Bergen County and New Jersey. Unfortunately his derogatory and offensive statements concerning women and minorities were already something that was reported in the public sphere and press many times as of late, and many of those who clamored for his resignation in the past few days had no hesitation accepting his support over the past few months. None of his co-partners in Bergen County government seemed shocked at the veracity of his statements, only by its contents; it is a stain on our county that County Executive Jim Tedesco did nothing while all of this hate was spewing and stood by the disgraced Sheriff. Tedesco’s actions may be worse than Saudino. Saudino may not know better, Tedesco does.”

Hackensack NJ,  Sheriff Saudino’s resignation is an important first step in repairing the relationship between the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and the diverse communities it serves.

Under state law, the Governor has the power to fill the vacancy left by the Sheriff’s resignation. That appointment will be subject to the advice and consent of the state senate. In the interim, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office will oversee day-to-day management of the Sheriff’s Office, with Chief Kevin Pell serving as the officer-in-charge of the department’s operations.

Reader says Saudinio was a “greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist “

buford_t_justice

For Saudinio, as a prominant Caucasian, to be as comfortable as he is in singling out and speaking down to, quote-unquote, “the blacks”. For Saudino to allow the natural independence afforded by his unique pre-constituional office to lead his tongue publicly to suggest that the new AG’s minority religion and concomitant garb (the turban) are the reasons he was elevated to that office by the new Governor. For Saudino to go further and give himself license to take a cheap shot another’s moral shortcomings (another officeholder’s apparent problems with same-sex attraction). These all mark Saudino as a self-satisfied majoritarian jerk. Saudino has already proudly shown himself to be without any identifiable political principles by switching midstream to the Democrat party, which, as everyone knows, only really cares about one thing–political power. Finally, his attention to self-interest is unsurpassed among state officeholders in New Jersey. NOTHING was going to interrupt the master bed-feathering class Saudino’s been teaching lo these many years.
.
What a greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist this guy is–right at home, one might add, with his new friends. Let it be said without fear of contradiction: “Saudino and the Democrats: Perfect Together.”

Reader say Ridgewood Voters are Getting What they Voted for from Phil Murphy

Tax and Spend Democrat Phil Murphy for Governor

The people spoke at election. People want Murphy. Regardless of damage he is about to inflict in everyone’s pocket and the state as a whole people just can’t resist his charm. He even declared he would rob people if elected via tax hikes etc. and Ridgewood voted 60% for him. He is so handsome and convincing, even the smart stay at home moms and their Wall Street husbands couldn’t resist. Rejoice. Phil is about to screw us en masse.

2017 General Election Results (Ridgewood)
38.2% Kim Guadagno
59.6% Philip Murphy
