“We can all watch the same meeting, hear the same conversation and yet come to different conclusions.

I heard a board that wants to make sure the new member has the time to do the job, they don’t want to end up with another new board member that misses meetings and doesn’t have time to serve on committees. The next board member needs to pull their weight.

Despite Calls For More Parking Ridgewood Merchants Continue to take Prime Spots

the satff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, The President of The Ridgewood Guild is Mr. Tony Damiano.  Posturing as an important dignitary in town, claims that businesses which might have come to Ridgewood opted out because there was insufficient parking. 

The current council set up a system whereby employees would be directed to park in sections of the Cottage Place and Walnut Street lots, thereby freeing up valuable on-street spots in front of stores and restaurants.  And yet Damiano parks his own vehicle in prime on-street spots every day, as seen in this photograph. 

If you think this is a one-off, you are wrong.  We have at least 15 more photos of his car in various NON-EMPLOYEE prime spots on North Broad, near his store.   Damiano was a big promoter of the Hudson Garage (Aronsohn Version) yet refused to work with the new administration when the “3 amigos ” left office .

“The village of Ridgewood should take action immediately and make temporary signs add all crosswalks in the CBD, and around schools to look both ways before entering a crosswalk. Use common sense. But this is the problem , The school system doesn’t teach common sense. And most parents don’t either. “
