  1. Don’t bother. They appoint their people.

  2. I heard Hans want to be on the zoning board

  3. Yep they fire people off the board, or they will change your term to get you off. You get bullied in the meeting and even if you Mahe a recommendation it gets overturned at the VC.

  4. are you really sticking up for that bigoted A-hole?

  5. you mean bigots like Hans?

  6. Time to replace the entire Library Board.

  7. Parents on Facebook starting to rally the troops for Guidance Counselors in all schools. I do not know the exact service that they feel is missing, most feel that the child study team cannot fulfill the job requirement.

    The school system is not a substitute for mental health counseling. We have school nurses but you still need your own primary doctor.

  8. Jeff, you are next. No confidence vote is coming. . .

  9. What board will you be serving on James Foytlin?

  10. 12:38 James is serving on the most important board in the Village of Ridgewood. The board of pubic information. ( Uncensored )

  11. You can learn more about the going on in Ridgewood on this blog then all political appointed board and village press releases.

  12. That is so true I know and learn more from the Ridgewood blog and then any other information line in the village. It’s amazing that I’ve been working for the Village of Ridgewood for over 25 years in village hall and there’s things that are year and come true from the blog. Just amazing

  13. So so very true, that’s because the upper Crow is very dirty. At times they think they’re slick, but really not that bright. That’s why we keep many steps in front of them. Their secret meetings in the Taj Mahal oare not that’s secret ‘ Big brother is always watching.

  14. 12:38. Exactly. Board filled with complainers and sheep that blindly follow.
