the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Phil Murphy’s attempt to disarm tax-paying NJ gun owners. It seems that in their ZEAL to make everyone “FEEL GOOD” about “doing something” about the great “firearms menace”, nobody in the in the Murphy Administration got the memo that NO EXEMPTION exists in the current statute for off duty Police Officers for ANY gun they carry! So how many Police Officers’s are technically in violation of the standard capacity Mag Ban simply because their department-issued equipment is in VIOLATION of the LAW put into place by the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in NJ (our Attorney General)?

Bogus Nepotism Attacks Are Really Attacks on Competence and Quality of Ridgewood Police and Fire Departments

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, the continued bogus nepotism attacks on the Mayors sons are doing nothing but undermining the authority of both the Ridgewood Police Department and Ridgewood Fire Department . Ridgewood is a state of New Jersey Civil Service municipality, candidates are ranked based on standardized test results ,dispersions to the contrary are nothing more than attacks on members of Ridgewood PBA Local 20 and Ridgewood Professional Firefighters FMBA Local 47.

According to the “Bergen Record” Councilman Jeff Voigt wondered how a fire chief or police chief would be able to properly supervise the mayor’s kids, even if she is not directly involved in overseeing the department. It raises thorny issues, he said. And again letting Voigt make fallacious assertions , “That puts them in an uncomfortable situation,” he said. “They [the kids] may even get preferential treatment.”

So Jeff Voigt , Rurik Halaby, Don Delzio, Janice Willett, Alexandra Harwin and the rest of their band of misfits followers all think the Ridgewood Police and the Ridgewood Fire Department are failing to adequately protect the public?

And In effect saying that the Chief of Police Jacqueline Luthcke and Fire Chief James Van Goor can not properly supervise their staff?

Ridgewood NJ, on August 28  the Ridgewood PBA Local 20 and FMBA Local 47 joined forces to donate a new bicycle to gracious young resident. Jaden was heartbroken to find that his bicycle, which… had been given to him by the FMBA, had been stolen and was unable to be recovered. Members of the FMBA and PBA we’re not satisfied with that outcome and decided to purchase a replacement bicycle for Jaden. He was asked to do three things in return, always lock up his new bike, always wear his helmet and to show his appreciation by doing something kind for someone else. After meeting with Jaden and seeing his appreciation, we have no doubt that he will pay our kindness forward.
