League of Women Voters CEO Virginia Kase was arrested Thursday at the U.S. Capitol for participating in an illegal anti-Brett Kavanaugh protest

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Washington DC, League of Women Voters CEO Virginia Kase was arrested Thursday at the U.S. Capitol for participating in an illegal anti-Brett Kavanaugh protest, along with hundreds of left-wing activists.
Funny how the League of Women Voters calls itself a “nonpartisan” organization, and is responsible for hosting hundreds of candidate forums in political races across the country this fall (and in every other election).
Far from downplaying Kase’s arrest, however, the League of Women Voters is celebrating it — though there are women on both sides of the issue of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Closing statements 1/1/2 minutes each

1. During the recent budget proceedings, Ridgewood Water outlined a six year, approximately 40 million dollar capital plan to
update the facility which serves not only Ridgewood but also Glen Rock, Midland Park and Wyckoff. Should the town invest the money
to update the facility or should we consider selling the utility and why?

2. We are looking at potential new development in Ridgewood , in the downtown area and the Central Business District (garage and
multi family housing at several locations). What measures would you propose to minimize disruption to traffic flow, local businesses and home owners and to ensure pedestrian safety?

3. Regarding the Town Garage location on Franklin Avenue and the adjacent municipal lots, the Department of Environmental Protection has cited these properties for remediation due to underground fuel tanks that are leaking diesel and hydraulic fuel into
the surrounding ground water. There has been talk of charging the cleanup to a potential developer or acquiring the garage site by
eminent domain and doing it ourselves. How do we address this problem in the most expedient manner so that no further
contamination occurs and serves the best interest of the village?

Reader asks can we prevent our town from becoming the new Northern New Jersey hotbed of progressive political posturing.

Reader asks can we prevent our town from becoming the new Northern New Jersey hotbed of progressive political posturing.

Will village council members Knudsen and Sedon attend the Sunshine Law – Open Public Meetings presentation by the League of Women Voters? More importantly, if they wished to do so, M’s Knudsen and Sedon should declare their intention to attend in their official capacity the ‘civility roundtable’ discussions that have become the mayor’s fetish, and thereby force him to adhere to all of the Sunshine Act formalities in advance of and in the wake of each such meeting. In this way the ambiguous, morphing nature of this ongoing series of quasi-public meetings seemingly steeped in issues of great public import will be eliminated, the participation and influence and of non-resident speakers (such as the arguably irrelevant ‘Englewood Councilwoman’ Lynne Algrant, ‘North Jersey Media Group Publisher and President’ Stephen Borg, and ‘Public Affairs Executive and Jersey City Official’ Robert Sommer) will be appropriately limited or regulated, and as a salutary side-effect, we will prevent our town from becoming the new Northern New Jersey hotbed of progressive political posturing.
