Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood League of Women’s Voters will hold a Village Council Candidate Forum on Monday April 30 at Village Hall at  131 N Maple Ave, in Ridgewood in the Ridgewood Village Hall Court Room.

There are four candidates for Village Council vying for two seats ; challengers Alexander Harwin  and Janice Willett face off against Mayor Susan Knudsen and Deputy Mayor Mike Sedon.

According to the league the candidates will read a back ground statement and then answer questions submitted by the League of Women Voters and members of the community .

While the league continues to bill itself as a ‘non partisan” organization with Crystal Matsibekker, President , Jane Shinozuka, Vice President, Ellie Gruber, Membership Chair , most outsiders view the league as another far leftists agenda driven organization with former Mayor Paul Aronsohn as the puppet master.

The league currently supports leftist causes such as “climate change “, illegals voting , claims there is no voter fraud (lol) , the Dream act, gun confiscation, illegal immigration, and Obamacare .

It will be interesting to watch if the league manufactures softball questions for Alexandra Harwin  an Aronsohn protégé  or it actually asks relevant questions about issues facing the Village of Ridgewood .

Observers say watch carefully for a stacked audience looking to attack the mayor with the usual litany of “nepotism, and wasteful spending “, while waving the rainbow flag and promoting over development and destruction of the Village of Ridgewood.

The forum will be broadcast on cable 77,fios 34 and streamed live on YouTube .
