Sadly the political opportunists are posturing to be quoted in the newspaper and photographed at the wake and funeral. He was such a great man and will now be taken advantage of in death by those who cannot miss an opportunity to see and be seen.

For just once could FORMER Mayor Paul Aronsohn refrain from […]

Reader says CRAB has long outlived its usefulness and veered off into personal politics

CRAB has long outlived its usefulness and veered off into personal politics. This is hardly a group to objectively advise the council. Sometimes a group’s having been in existence for a long time is a reason to end it, not continue it blindly. There is no good reason now for Ridgewood and Glen Rock to […]

Haven’t we had ENOUGH of these two???? Neither is any good for Ridgewood. Never were. Never will be

January 13,2018

From a concerned reader of The Blog:

Ridgewood NJ, Aronsohn and his little puppet Voigt are sending stupid letter after stupid letter to the Ridgewood News. Let’s sing the praises of Tim Cronin. Let’s applaud the CRAB. Let’s slam a citizen for speaking his mind at a Council meeting. Let’s slam another citizen. Let’s just […]

Reader says The past council was open about how they wanted to destroy everything about the town that made it unique and charming

The present council is worse than the previous. The past council was open about how they wanted to destroy everything about the town that made it unique and charming. This council is devious and destructive. Watch them tear away at the islands around the train station next. And dig deep because parking meters will demand […]

Reader says The truth is we all bear responsibility for having allowed the exploitation to take place

He used fear of change to create an appealing political message averring managed growth based on shared values. Once he had his triumpherate in place, however, he then […]

Reader debate the Extent of the Damage Done to the Village by the Previous Administration

Well, the previous council and their committees got everything they wanted. That is the reality.

Multi family housing, parking garage, athletic filed at Schedler and to boot a bonus prize for hard work…. tearing away the lovely islands at the train station and putting in a narrow pathway and calling it just as attractive. Aronsohn and […]
