…the fly has learned that two former council members have been romantically linked .  Its seems affairs of state have led to affairs of the heart. Sadly, the relationship appears to have led to the breakup of both marriages  . During business hours the couple would meet . The affair has driven one husband to flee the Village to a Jersey City condo and a wife to leave with the dogs . It’s been told that the husband laid a video trap and may have engaged a private detective to trail the couple , leaving both in sad state looking worse for the wear.

Jeff Voigt Ridgewood Council

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Last night at the Village Council meeting, Rich Calbi gave an outstanding (and comprehensive) report on how the Water Company is keeping our water safe and is complying with (and exceeding) EPA guidelines.  He is a great guy, very thorough and although he was speaking about scientific details, it was easy to understand.  Also, it is very helpful that the powerpoint slides are broadcast on the live stream to us at home.  I have been at meetings where you cannot even begin to see what is projected on those relatively small screens.  Thank you Mr. Calbi for your hard work on our behalf.

Ridgewood Board of Education Member Calls Out Village on Lack of September 11th Memorial

US-ATTACKS-9/11-ANNIVERSARY

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Jim Morgan, Vice President of the Ridgewood Board of Education  asks in what some are calling a feud with the Village Council , “What commemorative activity does the village municipal government plan to remember the many friends and relatives of Ridgewood residents that died in the attack? Glen Rock annually has a very moving gathering at their 9/11 Memorial. If Ridgewood has not scheduled anything, I would invite anyone that cares to participate in this civic ceremony. It is scheduled for 6:30 at Veterans Park on Main Street just off Rock Road.”

James,
Please be advised that my comments are personal and are made in my capacity as a Board of Education member. You will note that my posting made no mention of the BOE or my association with the school district. Thanks.
