New definition of arrogance – Ridgewood Board of Education members

BOE

by the staff of The Ridgewood Blog

Ridgewood NJ, Giving new meaning to the height of arrogance –

No mention of this November’s Board of Education election was ever noted on the Board’s official website. That’s right fellow taxpayers, the election was never referenced by the Board, at all.

No notice of election date was posted, no candidate bios were posted, no “please vote” message was posted, no election results were posted. NOTHING AT ALL.

What a bunch of arrogant morons the Board has become.

Our advice – VOTE THE BUMS OUT WHEN THE TIME COMES.

Reader says , ” Just add water, and–Poof! Instant enemies “

mister-rogers-trolley

Kaufman is clearly normal, in that, he’s not interested in becoming enemies with anyone. But that doesn’t mean he will not start bumping into people in his new role as a member of the district’s board who already have ill will toward him because they are naked partisans or perceive him as a threat to their particular fiefdom. Just add water, and–Poof! Instant enemies.
