River Vale NJ, from the desk of Assemblywomen Holly Schepisi : REALLY IMPORTANT ELECTION INFORMATION REGARDING THE BERGEN COUNTY ELECTIONS. YOUR ABILITY TO PROPERLY VOTE MAY BE IN JEOPARDY IF YOU DO NOT READ THIS. Notwithstanding widely shared information to the contrary, if you are voting by mail in Bergen you must return two separate ballots, one with all of the candidates from US Senate down to municipal and board of education and one separate special ballot solely for Sheriff. If you previously received a Vote by Mail Ballot in the month of September or October you MUST RETURN the original ballot received. A separate ballot solely for Sheriff will be sent to you that MUST ALSO BE RETURNED. Many people held off returning their originally received Ballot thinking that an entirely new one with all candidates and the Sheriff would be issued. This is incorrect. If your threw out or misplaced your original Ballot you must proactively contact the Bergen County Clerk’s Office at (201) 336-7000 to request a new one. Please share this post with your friends and family in Bergen County.

Reader says we voted for least objectionable candidates – not all were necessarily “good” candidates

Village Council election signs

Face it James – we voted for least objectionable candidates – not all were necessarily “good” candidates.
.
2016 – Voight and Hache were better than Willett, Weitz and Brooks and I voted for Voight and Hache, because they were the least offensive of the five – not because they were good.
Let me restate that… the candidate list was SO BAD that Voight got my vote.
.
2018 – Knudsen was better than Harwin and Willett and I voted for Knudsen. She is a nice person, but is not strong enough (or maybe doesn’t have the desire) to oppose the garage or fight low income housing (like Wyckoff is doing) – again least objetionable vote.
.
Sedon and Walsh are the best of the bunch.

As part of the double header Joe Connor a frequent guest on Fox News will talk about his book , Shattered Lives

January 24, 1975, six young businessmen were enjoying lunch in lower Manhattan’s historic Fraunces Tavern when a bomb placed inside the restaurant exploded, tearing through the building. It had been planted by a group claiming support for Puerto Rican independence known as the “FALN,” the most active domestic terrorist organization in American history. Among those businessmen were two sons of immigrants and only children – Frank Connor, with a wife and two young boys, and Alex Berger, whose wife was six months pregnant. Both were murdered, along with two other men, while dozens were injured, many horrifically.

Shattered Lives, co-authored by Jeff Ingber and Joe Connor, Frank Connor’s son, chronicles the origins of the Puerto Rican independence movement, its transformation into a Cuban-led Marxist cause, the FALN’s decade-long reign of murder and destruction that was a precursor to future domestic terrorism, the hunt for the terrorists directed by a group of dedicated FBI agents, the inexplicable escape from prison by the FALN’s chief bomb-maker who eventually received asylum in Cuba, and the political maneuvering that led to Presidents Clinton and Obama granting clemency to FALN members.

Reader says a 2:1 vote of residents expressed explicit approval for a parking garage on exactly the site that is being planned

vote yes ridgewood garage

I think this result qualifies as at least a little evidence that residents want a garage. After all, a 2:1 vote of residents expressed explicit approval for a parking garage on exactly the site that is being planned. A much smaller group of people used a technicality on the funding of the garage to veto a particular design, but that certainly doesn’t eliminate this overwhelmingly positive result as the foundation for moving forward.
