BOE Ducks Motions to Withdraw “Term” Lawsuit

Ridgewood NJ, reader says, “Chris Kaufman made a motion to withdraw the lawsuit. No one seconded his motion so there could not be a vote. I am so proud that I voted for this man.”

Cristopher Kaufman at the last Board of Ed meeting said : “I accept the consequences of [having the election in April 2019, thereby shortening the terms of existing members to 2.5 years] will have on my own term, but I feel it’s in the best interest of the Community that we have the Board of Education election with the budget vote this April.” Putting the Community first .

Disgraceful that the BOE Board members still do not want to take responsibility for the term extension law suit ?

Residents continue to question Board actions and get no response.

The ugly reality once again is fear by residents of retribution by the BOE,school administrators , teachers and coaches on their childern and the implosion of property values tied to school performance .Not suprisingly  recent criticism of the Boards move to use taxpayer money to launch a lawsuit to extend trustee terms with no tangible benefit to students and taxpayers has been primarily spearheaded residents who no longer have children in Ridgewood public schools or never had children in Ridgewood Schools.
