its2BIG
April 12,2016
the staff of the Ridgewood
Ridgewood NJ, Its2BIG Garage petition was completed on Tuesday afternoon! It was cheerfully accepted with 1227 signatures ,many more signatures than were needed. It’s a great day for democracy.

“Thank you so much to everybody who supported our petition. Total signatures: 1,227. The BCIA ordinance has been rescinded. It is our understanding that the local bond is now suspended until the council takes further action on our petition. One level down, shovels in the ground. Power to the people!”

Former Ridgewood Village Candidate Melanie McWilliams Endorses Bernadette Walsh and Jeff Voight

Melanie McWilliams

Hi All!

I want to say thank you so much to everyone who supported my choice to run for Village Council.

I really wanted to do it and to be a part of helping the town I love, preserve its character. I wanted to be a part of the process and I still will be.

The election is a numbers game, and we had too many chefs in the soup. If someone had to take one for the team and step aside, I am happy to have been that person. If it enables stability, common sense, and independent thinking to return to our council, then it is for the best. I apologize for the years of laughs I won’t be there to provide you, but hey, you can’t win them all! Council meetings would surely have been more interesting with me involved- in a good way!

And I’m not done. I plan to run in 2 years, and do my part at that time.

There ARE other excellent candidates, and I throw my whole hearted support behind Bernadette Walsh and Jeff Voight. They are excellent, proven, trusted leaders. I ask anyone that had been in support of me, to please throw your support behind these 2.
Thanks again to all of you.

Melanie McWilliams
